Rooting fertilizer for woody cuttings is a concentrated, multi-component liquid rooting fertilizer with the addition of vitamin B. It is used during rooting semi-woody and woody cuttings and after planting rooted plants. Vitamin B contained in the fertilizer stimulates the formation of hair roots responsible for the uptake of nutrients. A properly balanced set of micronutrients ensures proper growth of the root system of ornamental plants.
The fertilizer contains an increased dose of phosphorus, which contributes to the intensive development of the root system. Rooting fertilizer for woody cuttings also contains a starting dose of nitrogen, which supports the plant in creating aboveground parts. A number of micronutrients also support root formation. Zinc is a stimulator of the production of auxins – plant hormones. Auxins determine cell division, which in turn contributes to the formation of adventitious roots. It is after cutting the seedling and placing it in water that adventitious roots are formed on the above-ground plant shoots.
A simple recipe for a woody and semi-woody seedling:
Indoor plants for semi-woody and woody cuttings, e.g. ficus, cissus
Trees, shrubs and vines propagated by semi-woody and lignified cuttings, e.g. thuja, plane tree, privet, poplar, willow, dogwood, David’s budley, bouquet and shrub hydrangea, physalis, jasmine, currant, shrub, cinquefoil, tamarind , gold, varicose veins, honeysuckle, kiwi – actinidia, Aubert’s knotweed, boxwood, virginia creeper.
It is best to use this year’s shoots, which are similar in thickness to a pencil, to make cuttings. Cut the cuttings to a length of about 15-20 cm, depending on the arrangement of the nodes (places from which the leaves grew). We cut the shoots in such a way that there are two knots on it. Cut the top of the shoot at right angles, and the bottom at an angle. The prepared seedlings are planted 2/3 of their depth in a mixture of half and half universal soil and coarse sand.
