Osmocote Plus

This product comes in 7.5 grams tablets and granular, Analisis is 15-9-12. I will be selling only the granular. I use the tablets only for single tree sales.
How much you use depend in the size of the plant and the size of the container. Trial and error will tell you when you have applied too much or too little, however, here are some suggested application rates I took out from the Osmocote Plus instructions.
1 to 2 quarts container 7.5 grams (1 Scoopful)
3 quarts to a gallon container 15 grams
1.5 gallons 23 grams
2 gallons 38 grams
5 gallons 75 grams

All these are surface application rates but amount applied varies with rainfall, Temperatures, irrigation type, type of growing media, etc. I sell the tablets or when you order granular, you will get a 7.5 gram scoop with your order.

Watersorb

What else should you add to the ground before you plant? If you are concerned with not being able to water your trees on time, or if your soil is very sandy and water just goes thru it, you could add Watersorb, a polymer that retains water. I sell this by the pound, but, be aware, do not use too much of this or you will drown your plants. Use as much as a tablespoon of watersorb for each tree, no more. The watersorb has to be mixed well with the soil prior to planting the tree or cuttings. It is not always practical to use watersorb, for instance when you plant cuttings by just making a hole in the ground and placing the cutting in it.

How else can you use watersorb? Industry is using this in a lot of different applications. Put some water in a plastic bag, some food coloring, a pinch of watersorb, seal it (zip-lock won't do it, it has to be sealed) and you have a hot or cold compress which you can use in the microwave Be sure to leave no air trapped in the bag or it will explode when put in the microwave oven. For freezer use add some sugar to prevent it from getting hard. these compresses sell for $16 each at the drugstore, you can make it for about 4 cents. The latest scream in uses for watersorb... sanitary napkins.

Hormodin

With every order of Hormodin, I will include a Hormodin brochure which shows you how to use it. If you are into propagating, you can use it with many different cuttings that you can take from your own plants. Hormodin is required if you are using Rooterpots. The brochure lists about 180 different plants that can be propagated by cuttings and what strength of Hormodin needed.

Item PAF3 Hormodin 3
One ounce of Hormodin 3, one of the strongest rooting compounds around. Enough for many cuttings. Put a bit of hormodin in a shallow container (I use a petri dish), Insert the cutting in the hormodin, it will come out covered with enough Hormodin attached to it. Discard any product you don't use since it can become contaminated. $4.50 per jar.

Item PAF4 Hormodin 1
1 ounce jar. Enough for thousands of cuttings. Since it is very easy to contaminate it, take some out and put it in a shallow dish. Insert the bottom of the cutting in the Hormodin, it will come out covered with enough Hormodin attached to it. Discard any unused product. $4.50 per jar.
