I've used hormex many times before but after using Superthrive I was really amazed at the fantastic response. My plants appear to respond better with the Superthrive than just the plain old hormex.
Hmmm .... could it be that the plants have gotten so used to hormex and have become so "tired" with it? LOL!
Randy, what size Superthrive are they selling in that new mall in Pampanga? The one I got from the local sunday vendor here is just the smallest 60ml bottle. I understand that there are larger bottles available.
Perhaps I could ask you later (as a favor) to buy me a bottle if it is a larger bottle. Of course, I'd need to know what sizes are available and how much.
I've also tried some of the local seaweed extract since I read somewhere here in the forums about some seaweed extract+fertilizer etc. experiment which had good results. I tried it once but it didn't seem to make any difference so I discontinued it.
I think the imported hormex and superthrive appear to much better than our local version if NAA 'coz the imported products are proportioned mixes of different plant growth regulators .... unlike the local NAA, INAA and IBA I see being sold in our local gardens because these appear to be pure products and just one kind of plant hormone (not a balanced mix).
Here are photos of some plants I have that have responded extremely well with my application of Superthrive. Please take note that this has happened in a span of almost a week.
These are roots from my Semi-terete vanda Rev. Masao which has now been growing vigorously into the adjacent dendrobium wire basket.
Vigorous root and plant growth on one of my dendrobes mounted on a tree-fern slab.
These are new, healthy active roots growing from my Vanda Rev. Masao. Before the root growth, my plant was getting very leggy and leaves were falling off. I thought that my plant was slowly dying. Now the leaves stopped falling off and the lower, leggy stem has sprouted a lot of active, healthy growing roots.
This is the tremendous root growth from one of my mature dendrobium planted in a clay pot. Fantastic growth response!
Another dendrobium planted in a clay pot responding very well to the Superthrive treatment. (You can actually see some of the original, old roots that wasn't responding at all before the treatment. Now I am so happy with the deluge of new root and plant growth)
