To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As a rooting gel, it will do its job, nothing special. But for ~$115 you are getting scammed. DONT BUY IT AT THAT PRICE. Rooting gels and powders of the same volume sell for about $20 at gardening shops not far from anyone.
EDIT: editing my review from 4 stars to one star to reflect the recent price change. Local shops sell this and similar products for $20-30. DO NOT pay 70 dollars. That is absurd.
From my experience in cloning, there is no substitute for an appropriate climate and medium to propagate in. That being said, personally, I have not seen any noticeable difference in my success rate after using this gel. If you are having trouble getting your clones to root, it’s unlikely this gel is going to be the magic answer to your problems. Adjusting your temperature, humidity and light until you find an appropriate environment for your clones to thrive in should be your first priority before resorting to a rooting hormone. I believe this gel is geared more towards the experienced growers whom just want to mitigate as many issues as possible.
You do get quite a lot of gel for your money that will last you through hundreds of clones though, and it hasn’t decreased my success rate at all, so I’ll still continue to use it and update my review if I notice any positive changes in a bigger sample size.
This is a pretty good brand. I like it better than Diablo Alpha. This is also purple. Most cuttings did take. Nothing rotted- that tells me it isn’t too strong. You can dip stem in and not fear the rot in a few days. I have tried some gels that are a bit too strong and ONLY the cut area can have the clone gel. That’s tricky... I like simple... this was simple.
Fist time cloning and I was nervous. I had read all the reviews some are good some are bad. Cut the clones at an angle. Put a slit on the bottom then popped them in this stuff for I would say no more than 40 seconds.. and placed them in my aeroponic.. all my clones rooted in a week.. love this stuff and will only use from now on.
It's ok. I just find it frustrating that this product comes in such a tiny bottle and will be gone after the first 2-3 cuttings! Will get the powder next time as I have had success with it in the past. Thanks.
Awesome product. I had to cut clones before this item arrived since my garden was getting a little too tall. I put the snippings in my cloner and after 10 days nothing. Then this arrived, 5 days after applying to the stem roots began. Was able to plant them in dirt 7 days after that and they are all healthy veggies.
Absolutely fantastic I made about 230 clones and my success rate was in the 90% the ones that didn't make it was not always due to it not rooting. The root development was explosive as long as the bottom of the tray is warm. I had a thick bed of roots after just a week and a half on most
I did not see much difference when cloning if I used this product or not. I cloned 4 cuttings with it and 4 without it and all had approximately the same root development. I suggest to try cloning without it unless you don't mind spending 30$ for " just in case" scenario.
