Rhizopon Chryzotop Green 0.25% is a ready-to-use cutting powder containing 0.25% 3-Indolylbutyric acid. Chryzotop is a means to promote root formation in cuttings.
In plant buds, plant hormones or growth regulators (auxins) are produced under the influence of light and heat; they are transported to that part of the plant, where the roots are or should be. Therefore, in summer the production of these hormones is better than in winter. The best chance of rooting the cuttings is therefore from April to July. Outside this period, the success of rooted cuttings is more difficult and often depends on the weather. By adding external growth agents - rooting agent, which is popularly known as cutting agent - to the cuttings, the rooting of the cuttings can be helped better and faster.
As a rule, the active substance in the cutting powder is 3-Indolylbutyric acid with a content of 0.25% to 1%. Due to its composition, powder has a slow-release effect, which often gives better results than a wet or tablet-based adhesive.
The use of Rhizopon powders
A pre-treatment with a growth-containing powder is one of the most used methods for rooting of cuttings simultaneously and uniformly. Rhizopon powders have a slow-release effect, the so-called 'slow release effect', because of their composition, which can yield a better result than a variety of crops. Thanks to this delayed effect, a powder treatment is also ideal for cuttings that need to be transported or stored in a cold store for some time.
When working with Rhizopon cutting powder, it is important to ensure that the powder is evenly distributed over the base of the cutting. Otherwise, the cuttings could root unevenly if the powder was not applied correctly. It is also necessary to prevent the powder from coming into contact with leaves or other plant parts. This can cause damage.
Treatment of the cuttings with powder is simple and easy. The cuttings, individually or per bundle, are dipped with the base into the powder concentration to be used. The depth with which the cuttings are dipped determines the height to which root growth can be expected. The cuttings will start to root all over the powdered stem surface. After dipping the cuttings, the excess powder is tapped off, so that the base of each cutting is evenly powder coated all around. In some applications, such as marching, the powder can also be applied to the area to be treated with a clean brush.
Powder Dip / Spray Method
A combination of powder dip and spraying method is a possible solution for crops that root hard and slowly, where the uniformity leaves something to be desired. First the cuttings are dipped in powder and then stung. Then a solution with Rhizopon AA tablets is dripped over the cuttings until dripping. Click here for more information.
Always wash your hands after cutting and avoid contact of powder with food.
Plant growths should not be left in a warm and damp room. Storage should be in sealed packaging in a cool dry place and in the dark.
