Use of rooting hormone on salvia cuttings
    #3717648 - 02/02/05 05:49 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Im about to get three salvia cuttings which should be about 5 inches long, and I have some rooting hormone, but Im not sure whether to use it or not, its called "seradix" , for medium hardwood, and it contains "3g/kg of beta-indolylbutyric acid in the form of dust"

Im new to the salvia business and dont wanna screw up the cuttings, so what should I do? I've read the main online salvia pages and they dont really talk about using hormone. Salvia is a soft wood plant, and the instructions on the pack say to plant as per normal(in the ground), but I was thinking of putting the cuttings into the bottles as www.salvia-divinorum.nl shows after dipping them in the seradix.

You can leave them in water and they will strike roots.

Rooting hormone will help though, what you have is fine. I have the exact same thing and it works pretty much across the range with all plants and types.

Also, maybe you should try keeping them in pots as opposed to sticking them in the ground straightup. This allows you to accurately maintain moisture and nutrient levels easily and keep the conditions optimal for rooting.


Give me an ounce of civet, good apothecary, to sweeten my imagination!
