Hi! Have any of you experience of using homemade rooting hormone?

What I read online, Willow bark, raw honey and asprin can be used as rooting hormone. But couldnt find anyone's personal sucess experience using these alternatives. 

If you can share you experiences here.

I would require rooting hormone for propogating herbs cutting like rosemary, thyme, lavender and sage.

I read the same. Really wish someone could post a tested method of a rooting hormone made by home products in INDIA.

Why not use a store bought one? It is easily available in agricultural stores.

Yeah. Buying it from a store is a lot easier.

Even better, the herbs you are mentioning will propagate well without a rooting hormone. The secret to successful propagation is maintaining humidity and not letting the plant wilt. Make a mini greenhouse like I mentioned in http://geekgardener.in/2008/03.....ngs-howto/

 

Hope this helps.
