using rooting/growth hormone together with other organic/inorganic fertilizer

Post  waway on Wed Aug 26, 2009 3:18 pm

Good day everyone.

I'm just curious, could I use rooting/growth hormone together with a high nitrogen inorganic or organic fertilizer? I've read somewhere on the net that IBA or NAA prevents the tree from budding, making the tree dormant while growing the roots. Is it still necessary to use rooting/growth hormone on newly transplanted trees or a balance or my regular fertilizer is enough for my tree? What should I feed my trees to reduce shock/stress? By the way, I accidentally break/cut almost 50% of the roots.

Sorry if I'm bothering to ask you guys with this naive inquisition, I don't to fully understand the things mentioned on the articles of IBA and NAA or anything to do with transplant shock. FYI, I live in the tropics.

Well, that's a new one to me. I don't think I'd count on it.

I do know, however, that the rooting hormones are for pushing NON-root tissue to sprout roots. It actually inhibits growth when applied to living roots. I know that most of us can't resist dusting a bit of Rootone on the ends of large cut roots, but I suspect we shouldn't.

Thanks jim for your thoughts. I should do the same, stay away from rooting hormone.

What should I feed my trees during these "recovery from stress" days? That would in a way help them shorten their recovery time.

Just a balanced fertilizer. Read the label and follow directions.

forgot, when you refer to recovery, and stress i assume you mean after transplanting or collection from the wild, in which case the last thing you want to do is give them any fertilizer at all for at least a month . vit b1 is ok though, but only once . regards john

Yes, but reading this article Debunking the Myths of Bonsai one can see that vitamins and other stuff have not real impact on trees....
I have also read here on IBC something similar said by Jim Lewis, if I'm wrong please correct me.

First of all, transplanting conditions in the tropics are different from those in the North, even in summer, so we need to allow for it.
Please be clear about which hormone you are referring to, rooting hormone or something else.
Superthrive, which contains Vitamin B1 and rooting hormones, is widely sold, but it has never been scientifically tested. The formula is a secret. On the other hand, fish emulsion & seaweed extract have been rigorously tested and found to be helpful. If you want to use an additive to promote recovery in yamadori or transplanted stock, try seaweed extract. Fish emulsion combats root pathogens in the soil, at least for seedlings.

"Must?" I don't think so.

And please . . . NO COMMERCIALS on the forum. If you want to tout a product, buy an ad somewhere.

Waway,
kabayan, what i used during the transpant/repot, or newly collected tree is an organic feertilizer- bat guano. then no fertilizer unless the tree is established and achieved a healthy stage. so no grace period of time required, one month or six months- it doesnt matter. some trees recovers longer than others, a good example in our trees would be bantigue against kamagong...my personal experience with my longest ever recovering tree is one of my kamagong which took 7 months before shoots comes out, with bantigue new shoots appears in a week or two. but also consider the season. b1 vitamin doesnt help.

regards,
jun

Well, we've given it. No root hormone, and yes fertilizer. You may use organic or not as you prefer.
