Use the lowest rate to produce the desired effect.

PREPARING A HORTUS IBA WATER SOLUBLE SALTS® (20%) SOLUTION USING WATER
1) Weigh the required amount of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts. Measure by weight not volume.
2) Use tap water at about 65-90F; measure less then the final volume.
3) Mix: dissolve Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts in the water.
• If precipitation occurs with tap water then dissolve in distilled, demineralized, or filtered water.
• Do not dissolve Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts in solvents other than water.
4) Add water to the mixing container to bring the solution to the final volume.
5) Apply the solution by the selected method.
6) After use, dispose of the solution as described in the ‘Storage and Disposal’ statements on this label.
• For the Total Immerse and basal methods, dispose of solutions between plant lots to avoid cross contamination.
• Stock solutions can be made in any concentration, to over 100,000 ppm IBA, using Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts mixed in water.

AMOUNT OF HORTUS IBA WATER SOLUBLE SALTS® REQUIRED
• Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts contain 20% IBA.
• 1 gram technical IBA = 5 grams Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts
• Note: 1 gram = 0.035 ounce

PROMOTE ROOTING OF PLANT CUTTINGS
Use to propagate new plants from cutting, from those easy to root to the most difficult to root.

EASY STEPS
• Take plant cuttings, usually stem cuttings.
• For woody cuttings usually wound by making a 3/4" long notch at basal end.
• Apply solutions to plant cuttings by the methods listed below. (Do not apply the dry Salt powder to the plant cuttings.)
• Take care of cuttings as appropriate for the plant variety. Control watering, temperature, humidity, light and other environmental factors. Observe and control external factors such as insects and fungus.
• Use the minimum concentration to achieve results; excess concentration may inhibit root formation.

BASAL METHODS FOR USE ON CUTTINGS IN THE GROWING SEASON AND ON DORMANT WINTER CUTTINGS
