Spray Drip Down® Method.

First plant the cuttings then treat them. Spray the solution evenly over the cuttings until drops go down to the media.

Total Immerse Method.

First totally immerse the cuttings in the solution for a few seconds then plant them. Broad leaf cuttings are especially suited for this method. You can use a basket to dip the cuttings in a tub. Prevent bruising by not placing too many cuttings in the solution at once. Allow time for the solution to dry on the cuttings before watering, misting or covering. The temperature of the solution should be at least equal to the cutting temperature. A cold solution temperature causes the stomata of the cuttings close; the amount of active ingredients absorbed is reduced.

A long soak of the cuttings in a low concentration solution causes the plant tissues to absorb the active ingredients. Use this method on plants which may be sensitive to high concentration used in the Quick Dip Method. Immerse the basal end of cuttings approximately one inch in the solution for 12-25 hours nominal. Plant the cuttings immediately or cuttings can be stored in cold storage.
