You can get the molasses at the health food store, and I would imagine you can get "Jack's Classic" fertilizers and K-L-N on line if you search them. K-L-N is made by Dyna-Gro, who also carries a high-nitrogen foliar spray that makes a really good additive to your "growth" fertilizer while in the vegetative cycle:
20-20-20 fertilizer + foliar spray = vegetative
10-30-20 blossom booster + molasses+ K-L-N = bloom/root growth. Let me know how it works for you.

my vandas leaves are turning yellowish green and wrinkling. i live in the philippines and its outside in my garden in the southwest portion. it has no new roots and the roots are not so long i thin k only three roots and its a bit brownish and stiff. I put it in the driftwood and almost all my vandas and ascocendas are there. How can i grow new roots? I gave it rooting hormones and soak it for 15 mins once and water it daily since the temp here is always hot from 29 to 30 degrees. Hope i can get some advice thanks.

Hey... my insignis sounds as bad as yours, though it has more than 3 roots that are long but still dry and dead-looking...

Dilute your rooting hormones into blooming fertilizer, and apply daily with a spray bottle. You should only need about 1/2 tsp. per gallon of the rooting hormone.

Ok, will try that soon, I found out that quite a lot of the dead roots were rotting, quickly cut them off and now it's just a miserable few living roots left.

Default root cocktail

Hello Jasen.



I am very excited in trying your root cocktail for my bare root orchids , I wanted to be sure if the measuments of 2.5ml of blackstrap molasses and 3ml of KLN are correct.

Thanks.

Lupita.

Yes. Living in Britain, the chemicals that get mentioned on here are double dutch to me. I use orchid focus for mine. The molasses idea is fascinating though, might try that.

Question

I'm not sure if this will work on every plant, but I'll throw it out there anyway:


I've found that my vanda's roots grow better in darkness. I found this out by accident; I put it behind some of my other orchids, and in about two weeks, the roots had branched and they were growing very quickly. I'm gonna try covering its roots with something dark and see what happens. My Rhynchostylis puts out roots easily, but my vanda's a little more reserved.
