Root Cuttings + Clones Raw Honey

$ 8.00

Raw honey is the perfect rooting substance for cuttings and clones. Honey's natural antibacterial properties and enzymes work as anti fungal agents.

Swarm's Root Cutting + Clones honey jars are 6 oz.

Directions: Boil 2 cups water. Then stir in 1 TBSP raw honey and cool (don't boil honey). Dip cuttings + plant in potting medium (soil or water).

Cuttings of root or stem should be 6-12 inches cut on 45 degree angle. Each batch of honey rooting solution lasts up to 2 weeks
