  • Stimulates root growth after damage by disease or root feeding insects, or under conditions of temperature, water or salt stress.


  • Serves as high energy food source for plant and soil microorganisms

B-Complex and K Vitamins

  • Act as important catalysts to enhance and drive plant metabolism. Vitamin B1 is widely used as a rooting aid.

Amino acids

  • Form the building blocks of proteins - essential for plant growth and metabolism.
