Product Description

Product Description

ROOT!T Rooting Gel is the first rooting gel specifically formulated for use with pre-formed propagation plugs or more traditional growing media. ROOT!T Rooting Gel helps natural root development of cuttings. This fantastic product comes in a gel that stays firm in the plug, replacing the need for hormone rooting powder. ROOT!T Rooting Gel, unlike other rooting gels is placed directly into the central cavity of the plug. The gel forms a seal around the cut surface of the cutting, aiding uptake and helping prevent dehydration and infection. It will work equally effectively with rooting sponges, stone-wool plugs, peat plugs, coco coir plugs/fibre or compost. ROOT!T rooting gel has been successfully tested on a huge range of garden plants, including many herbs , perennial flowers and even woody plants . Using ROOT!T Rooting Gel, the time taken till first root formation is optimised, more roots per cutting developed and faster root growth achieved. It is economical in use and, providing that the plugs remain moist, success rates are extremely high.

  • 1 bottle of rooting gel

    according to the instruction, one shall put the spout into the hole and squeeze the gel into it while slowly raising the bottle until the hole is filled. Sounds easy and quick enough, tempting me to abandon powder. BUT that causes the fine cutting compost to clump with the gel that builds up around the spout and the neck of the bottle what makes the process rather messy. Cleaning up this mess every few holes is wasting a tremendous amount of gel. (Leaving the gel/soil mix sticking to the bottle will not utilise it for the next cutting hole, because it is impossible to get it from the outside of the spout down into the hole. And preventing gel from building up around the spout and neck to avoid this problem in the first place proved impossible for me because one cannot see through the bottle nor the soil, and therefore does not see when the hole is filled before it overflows.)
    As the soil clump builds up on the spout, it makes the spout even wider, widening the top of the next cutting hole - requiring even more gel to fill it.

    Another flaw appears to be the very short - but thick - spout: too short to reach deep enough into the hole. That forces you to fill the hole from the middle down instead from the bottom up. Sqeezing the gel from the middle to the bottom causes it to spread out, widening the hole more than necessary. That extra cavity, of course, gets then filled with the gel too, wasting even more.
    Also, as the spout is short and conical rather than long and slim, its diameter is much wider than the diameter needed for cutting holes e.g. for petunias, bacopa, verbena, geranium and such. You guessed it by now - making the hole wider what then is filled with the gel, wasting lots of it....

    So far, this seems to be working very well. The cuttings I have started using this definitely seem less prone to wilting or rotting. I had no trouble with the nozzle clogging up, as some other reviewers said. I used fibre pots and after moistening the compost as usual, made holes about double - 3 times the diameter of the cutting with a dibber, and squirted the gel into the holes, without actually inserting the nozzle into the compost, which worked really well. Only thing I would say is that you don't get many cuttings from a bottle, so it works out quite pricey. It's only been a couple of weeks as yet, and I will try and update this review when I know how many of the cuttings actually root..
