    It has the same composition as Superthrive (B1 and NAA) so I guess it works well on plants.

    1 to 2 ml per litre of water should be a good dilution for this product, both as a root and foliar spray.

    Hi
    Thank you very much for the reply.
    Here is the instruction in Thai.
    If someone know Thai maybe can help to translate.

    Thanks

    I use Superthrive often. I rarely give the amount suggested on the label. Instead I add a drop or two to the regular fertilizing regime. I do use it at the recommended strength for plants that seem to need a serious boost, but never for anything in spike or bud.

    Jason, you da man! I use any of the b1 products but never in bud. I will use some in spike...just dilute the heck out of it.
    I like Bruces' dilution of 1/4 strength (did I read that right, Bruce?). You know, the weekly weakly bit...Remo

    just bought b1, all in thai (ingredient and directions), seller just said 1 tea spoon of this per 2 liter, every once in 3 weeks...
    so i decided to google b1 root hormone and found studies that says b1 doesn't do anything to root growth,...

    Does vitamin B1 help transplants take root? - Free Online Library

    I also use superthrive in all my plants, in more diluted form for everyday use.

    And my plants is more hardy. All of my orchids also have favorable results.

    I have used Superthrive and also B1-tablets (from the chemist's) but I really didn't see any results. Perhaps there were and I was expecting miracles, but I haven't bought any of them again.
