This is a discussion on Does superthrive work for rooting and stimulating growths? within the New Growers: Ask the Senior Members forums, part of the New Growers category; ...
Hi everybody, yesterday I posted how to encourage the growth of roots and new growths, and I had recomendations of other rooteners and hormones for orchids, I really tried to find them in all nurseries I could go but I didn't find them in any of them, I also asked to the attendant of a nursery and he said that those products are only sold in EUA or at specific places that aren't in México. The unique rootener or the most similar I can find is superthrive, so I´m expecting it works, I was thinking to apply it regularly with a less dose but sprayed to my orchids because I have some ones that are completely root lost or watered every week with the recomended dose.
I read that is better to apply it at night because the tiamine degrades with sun rays.
Do you think if superthrive works good and what experiences do you have with it?

I bought 2 lycastes skinneri from Guatemala, they were in good shape and with good root system, but here in Querétaro México is too dry so maybe they took some time to tailor to the new climate although I do as much as possible for keeping good humidity in my greenhouse. The problem is that these lycastes lost all their roots, I tried the bag, and the bottle therapy with no results, I'm still waiting the new growths to take new roots but I don't see any new root, I applied superthrive 2 weeks ago that is the unique hormones and rootener available, the potting media is fern fiber and in the other lycaste is cattleya media with bark and volcanic rock, I read that the spagum moss stimulates the roots growing so I put a little over the media. I would like to know what else can I do, what conditions of light, temperature and humidity do they need for rooting. Also I have 2 cymbidiums, one chysis bractescens and one cattleya without roots but all have one new growth, how can I recover them and finally how do I encourage roots of a backbulb.
These are my lycastes without roots
