Application Rates for KLN Rooting Concentrate

  • Preparation of Cuttings: Select 3 – 6 inch cuttings from the new growth on vigorous, disease-free plants.  Using a sharp knife or razor blade, sever the cutting from the parent plant by cutting through the stem at a 45° angle. Do not use shears which crush the tissue. Place stems only in KLN Rooting Concentrate, diluted between 1 : 250 to 1: 750 . (1.33 ml to 4 ml per 1 litre water). Callus formation should start in 7 – 10 days with roots soon after.
  • Soaking: (Oasis cubes, rockwool, vermiculite, sand, etc.) Soak the cutting in KLN diluted 4 ml per 1 litre of water) for 10 – 15 minutes then place in growing medium using nonmetallic container only and water to saturation with KLN diluted between 1:375 to 1:750 (1.33 to 2.67ml per 1 litre water). For hard to root cuttings use 4 ml per litre of water.
  • Misting: Mix at a dilution rate of 1:1 500 (0.67 ml per 1litre water) KLN and include Pro TeKt at a dilution rate of 1:750 (1.33 ml Pro TeKt per 1 litre water) and add to the system’s holding tank. Keep the cuttings moist at all times.
  • Air Rooting: Dilute KLN at a dilution rate of 4 ml per 1 litre water. Saturate medium and place into a cut on a plant stem. Cover with opaque plastic or foil. Keep moist with KLN solution until adequate roots form.
  • Transplanting & Dividing Plants: Drench newly potted or transplanted plants with a solution KLN and Pro TeKt and any Dyna Gro. For each product at a dilution rate of 1:750 (1.33 ml per 1 litre water) of water. Continue applications of KLN until the plant is established in the new medium.; This will ensure vigorous and healthy new growth.


Maintaining Root Growth for Orchids

Use KLN Rooting Concentrate with any Dyna-Gro Nutrient Solution once a month throughout the growing season to promote new root growth. Mix at a dilution rate of 1 : 1500 (6.7 ml KLN to 10 litres of water). Do not use KLN Concentrate during periods of dormancy, or when flower initiation is desired.


Repotting Orchids

When repotting all orchids, Dyna-Gro Liquid Grow, KLN, The Rooting Solution and Pro-TeKt, The Silicon Solution, should be used to promote new root growth to quickly acclimate the plant to the new medium. Any growing medium used for repotting should be prepared in advance by soaking the potting medium in a bucket of water that has 5 ml of Dyna Gro Liquid Grow or Dyna Gro Orchid Pro 7-8-6, 2.5 ml of Dyna Gro Pro TeKt and 5 ml of Dyna Gro KLN Rooting Solution added to every 5 litres of water. Allow soaking for a few hours or overnight if possible. The addition of soluble silicon (Pro-TeKt) helps reduce stress to the plant during transplanting and reduce losses to fungus and dehydration. The bark should be soaked in a similar solution for two to three days prior to repotting to prevent the chips from dehydrating the plant.


Bare Root Orchids

For bare-root plants such as vandaceous orchids, Bromeliads and Tillandsia, a 1 ml. KLN Concentrate per 750 ml of water solution can be misted on the plants to stimulate additional root growth.
