Esi-Root is a scientifically formulated rooting hormone that provides a superior strike of cuttings - both hardwood and softwood. Esi-root is faster and more effective than most conventional hormone preparations, and until now, has only been available to commercial growers. This unique hormone formulation can be used as either a dip, dunk, or a spray, for a given application, in order to improve the vegetative propagation (cuttings) of a range of plant species.
Please note this is a commercial grade product (registered with the APVMA), therefore is provided as a concentrate which must be diluted and used in compliance with the product label (as provided in the photo gallery, and/or the bottle).
Depending on the applicable dilution rate, the 500ml bottle can make up to 200L of spray solution to support commercial-scale plant propagation.
What we love
Esi-Root has been scientifically researched and proven to be effective in improving plant propagation. Some of the advantages include:
Two hormones - contains NAA as well as IBA. Research shows that a combination of these two plant hormones is generally more effective across a wider range of species than IBA alone, which is common is most rooting gels and powders.
No Alcohol - unlike many gels, Esi-Root doesn't use alcohol to dissolve the hormone, therefore is non-phytotoxic to plants. The effective delivery system used in Esi-Root requires a lower concentration of hormones, thus reducing the risk of burning, further increasing the strike rate.
Wetting Agent - helps break down surface tension, wax and sap, resulting in more effective delivery of the hormones to the cutting.
Widely Researched & Trialled - Esi-Root has been extensively researched and trialled, and is used on a wide range of natives and exotics, for both softwood and hardwood cuttings.
