    Transform cuttings into strong, healthy flower plants.

    When it comes to planting, you shouldn’t moderate when you propagate. RootBoost will help by turning simple cuttings into new plants. Cut as close to the base on existing healthy plants as possible. Once planted in the recommended soil mixture, the cuttings will root and can be transferred to new soil as needed. RootBoost only works on cuttings and has no effect on established plants.

    • This product boosts root growth on cuttings when propagating plants for new growth
