To handle the roots of seedlings, certainly one of the best tools.

Heteroauxin tablets is less soluble in water, but it has a longer shelf life.


Heteroauxin is an indole acetic acid with a specific odor, which is the main plant hormone. Heteroauxin available in tablets.

Kornevin (Heteroauxin analogue) is a root formation stimulator, where the active substance is indolylbutyric acid. The drug is available in powder, which need to powder cuttings before planting, but you can use an aqueous solution.

All these acids (indolyl butyric and indolylacetic) belong to the group of auxins, which stimulate the stretching of plant cells.

There are opinions that Heteroauxin is more effective than Cornevin. At least, Kornevin is not as popular among gardeners as Heteroauxin, possibly due to the fact that there are a lot of fakes.

Epin is an environmentally friendly drug that stimulates the immune system, regulates plant growth, and helps them adapt to stressful conditions. Epin is the Russian equivalent of the Japanese bioregulator JRDC-694 epibrassinolide.

On sale now you can find the drug Epin-extra. This is the same Epin, just since 2003, the manufacturer began to use the best quality epibrassinolide, so the name has changed.

When Appina is used, seeds germinate much faster and cuttings take root, resistance to various diseases increases. The only drawback of Appin is the instability of the active substance to light and to an alkaline medium.

Spray the plants with this drug should be either overnight or early in the morning, and the water for the preparation of the solution, if necessary, acidified with citric acid.

Zircon (also produced from natural raw materials) increases the germination of seeds, accelerates their germination, as well as the development, growth and flowering of plants, significantly reduces the likelihood of damage from gray rot, powdery mildew and viral diseases.

In addition, Zircon has a very high root-forming activity, almost at the level of rooting preparations, therefore it cannot be used simultaneously with similar preparations.

Spraying with Zircon should also be carried out at dimly lit time of day (at night or early in the morning), since its active substance is destroyed by light.

Is it necessary to apply growth stimulants to indoor plants?

You decide. If you have any exotic plants that are hard to live in the band of your residence (the climate is not the same), then you should try. Just do not overdo it, follow the exact dosage and recommendations indicated on the package. Overdose will worsen the situation, especially if the plant is weakened.

If we compare the action of Appin and Zircon, the first one acts softer, therefore it should be used more to prevent diseases and to increase resistance to stressful conditions.

Zircon can also be used if Epin was not found or when clear signs of disease have already appeared on the plant. It can also be used for rooting difficult-to-root cuttings and for planting plants that breed only by dividing a bush or by seeds and spores, since they react painfully to root damage.

Florist note

The only legal manufacturer of Épin-extra and Zircon is the Russian company NEST-M. So, beware of fakes, and, in addition, try to buy freshly made preparations. From long lying on the shelf of the store, the impact efficiency decreases. They also have the drug Domotsvet (the same activating growth promoter), designed specifically for indoor floriculture.

As for Kornevin and Heteroauxin, then besides them there are still many different root-formers, as well as their producers. Therefore, to understand where the fake, and where the current drug, you can only try on yourself, or rather, on their green pets.

Description of the drug "Kornerost"

Every gardener wants to learn how to improve the survival rate of seedlings. Many gardeners use willow water, honey and aloe juice as natural stimulants of root formation. However, these tools do not always allow to achieve good results.

The only sure way, which always gets into the bull's eye, is the use of ready-made growth stimulants that have a more effective action. If you plan to plant cuttings in the ground, then you will probably be interested to learn more about Kornerost, what kind of drug it is and in what cases its use will be effective.

The use of "Kornerosta" allows you to significantly increase the overall survival rate of seedlings and get more hardy and strong plants. "Cornerost" is an excellent plant conqueror, which is absolutely safe for both the plants themselves and for people.

Active ingredient and mechanism of action of growth stimulant

The drug "Kornerost" found its active use in crop production, which is dictated by high efficiency and ease of use.

The composition of "Kornerosta" simple: It is made on the basis of the potassium salt (indolyl-3) - acetic acid. Externally, this tool is a powder with a cream color.

After the application of "Cornerost", there is an increased formation of roots on the cuttings or seedlings, which significantly improves the survival of plants and increases their adaptive abilities. To achieve the maximum effect from the use of fertilizer "Kornerost", you should carefully read its instructions.

Advantages of using the drug "Cornerost"

"Cornerost" has a high biological activity, which allows it to be used for rooting even those plants or varieties that are characterized by low adaptive abilities and capricious disposition.

The root stimulator accelerates their growth, contributes to the formation of a better root system, due to which the sprouts are very strong, resistant to plant infections and demonstrate a more generous flowering and fruiting.

Safety measures when using the drug and first aid for poisoning

Rooting stimulants have a high biological activity, and therefore are used in microdoses. So that the drug does not react with the material used to make the container, The cuttings are processed in glass, enamelled or porcelain dishes.

At cultivation of working solutions all manipulations should be carried out with use of individual means of protection of respiratory organs, mucous membranes and integuments.

All manipulations with the drug are carried out only in protective clothing (lab coat), glasses, rubber gloves and a respirator, since the concentrated solution irritates the mucous membranes of the eyes and respiratory organs, which can cause choking cough, allergic rhinitis or conjunctivitis.

After use, all personal protective equipment is washed with soap and water and taken a shower.

If, despite all the precautions, poisoning still occurred and there is poor health, nausea, vomiting, redness of the skin and mucous membranes, it is necessary to take measures immediately before the arrival of the emergency to reduce the effect of the drug on the human body.

If the product comes into contact with the eyes or mucous membranes, it is necessary to quickly rinse them under running cold water.

If he was accidentally swallowed while working with the drug, immediately rinse the mouth with plenty of cold water, then drink several glasses of liquid and activated carbon at the rate of one tablet per kilogram of body weight, then try to induce vomiting through irritation of the back of the larynx. Perform the procedure several times.

How to store the drug

Means "Kornerost" must be stored in its original packaging, indoors, separately from food and animals. When preparing, it is necessary to ensure that the amount of working solution corresponds to the volume of work planned for implementation.

If the drug accidentally crumbled, try to collect it as soon as possible and use it to prepare the working solution.

All surfaces contaminated with the product are thoroughly washed with water with soap or detergent.

Container remaining after using the drug may be disposed of at household waste collection points, which are located at a considerable distance from residential buildings and animals. It is forbidden to throw it into rivers, lakes or sewer systems.

Remember: in skillful hands, Kornerost is a powerful stimulator of root development in plants, but if it is violated, it can cause serious damage to human health.

How to use the hormones that stimulate rooting

For the correct use of rooting hormones, it is necessary to understand two main points. First, the hormone concentration used to stimulate root formation can be detrimental to already growing roots. Secondly, although the bark can absorb the hormone, most of it enters the cutting through the cut. Therefore, processing hormone powder cuttings, immerse only the basal (lower) part into it, trying to avoid powder falling on other parts of the cutting.

Due to the action of the hormone, the formation of roots begins. But if the growing roots come into contact with the remnants of the drug preserved on the cortex, they may die.

This happens, however, not with all plants, but, since in certain conditions some types of losses may be significant, it is more prudent to choose a method that would be suitable for all plants. If hormonal powder sticks poorly to the cuttings, it is desirable to pre-dip them in water. This is especially useful to do with green cuttings.

Aqueous solutions of hormones are prepared by dissolving the sample of the drug in the right amount of water. Then for a period of 12 to 24 hours put the cuttings in the solution. Since the concentration of the hormone in the aqueous solution is much lower than in the powder, and the crust absorbs relatively little of the preparation, the depth of immersion of the cuttings in the solution in this case is not critical.

If an alcohol solution is used, then keeping the cuttings in the solution at the right time, let it drain from them, the alcohol will evaporate and only the preparation remains on the cuttings.

Special wounding stem cuttings

Since it is not possible to cause the appearance of roots by treatment with phytohormones
cuttings, apply methods by which you can stimulate the formation
natural hormones inside the stalk itself.

In the stems of some plant species between the bark and wood there is a layer of tissue that prevents the formation of roots. But if this tissue is damaged, normal formation of roots begins. To this end, in the lower part of the cutting, a piece of bark 2-3 cm long is cut off with a sharp knife or 3-4 incisions are made of the same length and depth to solid wood.

This method is especially effective at reproduction of rhododendron, daphne and juniper. However, they should be used carefully and not always, because through the damaged tissues infection of plants with any infection is facilitated and they rot. The need for injury often arises when working with lignified cuttings, green cuttings, as a rule, do not need it.

You can make sure of the need for this operation empirically: if all other attempts to cause the root to root out fail, try influencing the cutting by wounding.

How does Cornerost act on plants?

This drug helps to stimulate rooting in almost all crops, as well as flowers, including room plants. It can be used for plant propagation by cuttings, when transplanting seedlings. Using Cornerost significantly improves the survival rate of seedlings. Speed ​​of early and general harvest increases. At the same time, there is no harm to the plant, as well as the fruits themselves, their chemical composition, useful properties, etc.

How much is Cornerost

It all depends on the form of release. The drug is available either in powder form or in capsules with instant substance. Most often there are capsules. Packaging contains 2 capsules. The drug is inexpensive, but prices may vary depending on the store and the city in which it is purchased. The average price for a package of two ampoules is 30−40 rubles.

Reviews of the stimulator Cornerost

I usually have no problem when I transplant plants. Everything that is not transplanted, quickly takes root and then grows well. But there are exceptions. In my case, this is Kinki ficus. No, I did not transplant it, I just loved it so much that I overdo it with watering and he died. Then she took the cuttings from her mother-in-law, but failed to root them after several attempts. Already spat on everything, and wanted to buy a new ficus in the store, but by chance on some forum I found out about this drug. Someone wrote that with his help, you can root anything. I decided to try. I bought “Kornerost”, begged 3 cuttings from my mother-in-law, put them in the solution and planted it a week later, watering them with the same solution, but already freshly prepared. All rooted! Now I have 3 ficus, albeit not very large yet, and packaging of Cornerost just in case.

Alla, Torzhok, Tver region

This drug is used for the fourth year. I have a private house, a garden, a big family, so we need a lot of vegetables, fruits and greens. I myself grow everything to be confident in the safety of products. In the spring, I sow seeds for seedlings, about a week before planting, they are watered with a solution of Cornerost. Then, before planting, I also dip the roots of the seedlings in the solution, and water the rest when everything is planted. Everything is very well and quickly takes root, grows. I'm happy. The harvest is good every year, and about 95% of seedlings take root in the open field, it grows well.

Tried in the past and the year before. I do not see much effect. This year is unlikely to be used.

I love roses, but they are not very good for me, because bushes bought rarely take root quickly. Accidentally in the newspaper I found out about this drug, I decided to try. Just planned to purchase a few shrubs room roses. Before planting them in pots, held them in a solution of “Kornerosta”, then, when I had planted them, poured them on them. Roses quickly settled down, strengthened, and after a week they had buds on them. I did not expect, frankly, such an effect. Now I always water the plants with a solution of this drug. Really very well and quickly take root.
