I use Inocucor on my orchids, but I'm wondering can I also use this on my other plants including my Hoya plants.

Of course! It is used more for food crops than for ornamentals.

One of the first field tests was on a particular variety of broccoli in the test gardens at Clemson University. Seedlings were watered-in with 50ml of a 1:100 solution, and treated again in six weeks. Over the harvest period, they measured 10" down from the crown and cut. The yield was 38% greater than untreated plants.

In my flower beds in PA, we planted New Guinea impatiens every spring for years, and every year they got mildewed and died back for a bit, then recovered into "so-so" plants. When I started carrying the Inocucor product, I tried spraying the plants one time at planting. Never saw another rot, and I repeated that 4 years running before we moved.

The (regular) impatiens in the attached photo were seedlings in 1.5" cell flats six weeks ago. They were treated at planting with KelpMax and Inocucor.

Thank you so much for that info Ray! My other plants are all in for a treat!

I have just started to collect some African violets, and of course, the cheapest way to do that is to get some leaves of plants you like and start them that way. I am starting the AVs on 1 tsp of appropriate AV fertilizer and 1 tsp of inocucor per gallon.

I think the directions say 3 tablespoons per gallon. If I'm not mistaken.

I really have no idea what such a low dosage does, but if you really want them to root quickly, dip them in a KelpMax solution.

Just wanted to say that I've had a Hoya Nervosa for a few years now that has never bloomed - until now! I have it on the wall of my staircase beneath a skylight, and I'm fairly sure that it hasn't bloomed because it really doesn't get quite the light it needs. But-yesterday I say a large bloom on one of the vines! And this I attribute to using Inocucor! It has had only 2 doses since I posted my question about Inocucor, and well, I'm glad I expanded my use of this stuff. Thank you Ray

Oh, I forgot to answer the entire question: I have 2 hoyas, and 2 epiphytic cacti, a begonia, and a miniature ivy I use inocucor on as well as the AV's and the Orchids.
