Frequently Asked Questions...

What is in Schultz TakeRoot rooting hormone?

The container says active ingredients are:
0.1% Indole-3-butyric acid
99.9% "other"

I'm curious about its performance compared to other products in that price range, and particularly WHY it's so dangerous? The container is loaded with warnings and cautions..

Best Answer...


Indole-3-butyric acid is an effective rooting hormone. Most data indicates it to be effective in small concentrations (~1,000 ppm). The EPA listed it as an irritant to skin, eyes, etc.

As it is an acid and because of the possibility of litigation the container will be loaded with warnings. Using precautions such as gloves and protective eyewear and correct doseages during use and it will not pose a problem. Keep the container out of reach of children.

If one rooting hormone has the same concentration of the same chemical as the next, then the results should be same.
