Rooting Compounds

Hormodin is a root-inducing plant hormone and a formulation of indole-3-butyric acid (IBA). IBA is a synthetic, auxin root growth hormone, which acts as a root stimulant.

Hormodin enhances rooting, which reduces propagation bench time, and plant loss. Hormodin is easy to use, yielding steadfast performance of rooted cuttings and zero disease migration.

To Apply Hormodin

  1. Moisten cuttings, especially the basal ends of the cuttings before treatment. (Geraniums are the exception.)
  2. Pour a small amount of Hormodin into a bowl or pan.
  3. Dip and stir basal ends of the cuttings in Hormodin.
  4. Remove excess powder by tapping on the rim of the container.
  5. Plant treated cuttings in rooting medium.


Simply stated: "dip it, tap it, stick it"! Hormodin works best when used on fresh cuttings.

Hormodin is available in three strengths: Hormodin 1 at 00.1% (IBA), Hormodin 2 at 00.3% (IBA), and Hormodin 3 at 00.8% (IBA).

  • Hormodin 1 is a general-purpose powder designed for the grower who propagates plants such as roses, carnations, poinsettias, some shrubs, and most soft herbaceous plants.
  • Hormodin 2 is prepared specially for propagating many woody and semi-woody plants, including some evergreens.
  • Hormodin 3 is prepared specially for propagating the more difficult to root varieties, including many of evergreens and dormant leafless cuttings.
