Yep, did that...1 & 15 second dips, and then compared 30, 45, 60, 90 & 120 seconds--the best for cannabis was 60 seconds (able to transplant rooting cube in grow medium the soonest). The instructions that come with the liquid concentrate suggest soaking 1-5 minutes...I am thinking "woody" type cuttings will require the 5 minute soak--which I tried for some outdoor plants and no problem--it even helped some succulents I was dividing/transplanting.

I did observe this though, the fatter the stems were the ones that soaked longer (greater than 1 minute)--and produced greater root mass...but it did not do so good with the some "skinny minis".

Also, a nice additive for "maintenance" too. Root feeding at the rate of 2.5-5ml/gallon seems to kick things up a bit.

That’s interesting. I’ve always been told that absorption is immediate and not necessary to use in excess, kind of the less is more principle. Maybe the formulation of Hormex has some other things to it. Good you experimented, as I said before…whatever works the best for you.

By the way, that link didn’t work for me.

Funny, that link worked for me...try "hormex.com" then.

Try a few side by sides, and the standard I used was time required to go from "root cube" to "cup". That is what I did and haven't looked back since.

Yes it does. And adding root stimulator products (the expensive bottles - not intial stem dip IBA powders gels and liquids) before cuts actually strike and show initiation CAN inhibit and prolong the rooting process as well.
