Aspirin When using rooting hormone powder all you need to do is dip your cuttings into water which will allow the powder to seal the cut area. Then you can pour some powder into a separate bowl or plate to avoid contamination.
In a separate container, pour a small amount of Clonex rooting gel and dip the cutting right after being separated from the plant. Next, dip the cutting into Clonex about 15 mm. Place the cutting into the propagation medium just deep enough to support the newly planted cutting. As soon as cuttings are inserted, they should be misted with tepid water and placed into a propagator. It comes in a gel that stays firm in the plug, replacing the need for hormone rooting powder and it is placed directly into the central cavity of the plug. The gel forms a seal around the cut surface of the cutting, aiding uptake and helping to prevent dehydration as well as infection. This gel contains no hormones and relies on a physical mode of action to work. Even though aspirin consists of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) which is chemically similar to salicylic acid (SA) naturally occurring in plants, aspirin is not a rooting hormone.

Make sure to crush it with enough pressure so that it breaks down into powder. You can also smash the tablet with a hammer and then mix it into the water. Next, dip the cuttings into the aspirin mixture to accelerate the rooting process. Make sure to submerge the cuttings in the aspirin solution for two to three hours before transferring to the next step.So, in this category gel rooting hormone has more active ingredient (0.31% IBA) and the product is water-based with the rest of it made of a full spectrum of mineral nutrients and trace elements to help plant in the early development.
