Question: Are radicanete hormone and fertilizer the same thing?


I followed a video of yours saying that to make prebonsai you had to put rooting hormone on it, instead of the rooting hormone I put fertilizer - specific fertilizer for bonsai the cutting will branch the same?

Cure prebonsai: Answer: rooting hormone


Dear Rodrigo,
plants in general have a good capacity for tissue regeneration, even if damaged; this ability allows a plant to reconstitute itself even if it is ruined by a series of external factors. For this reason, it is very easy to propagate plants through cuttings, or by taking a small branch from the plant and placing it in the ground. During a period ranging from a few days to a few weeks, the cells found in the buried part of the branch will begin to produce roots, reconstituting a plant identical to that from which the twig was originally taken. Some plants have greater ability to root if buried, others have much less; in addition to this, some plants tend to root for cuttings much better if the picked twig is woody or woody seeds, rather than still green. An example for all of these are some succulents, which tend to root very easily, while the cuttings of some shrubs, or resinous plants, root only with great difficulty. The cells that make up the plants are very specialized, like those of the human body; beneath the bark, besides the lymph, flow some substances that function as messengers between the cells, alerting each individual cell of which it must be its specialization. Some cells become part of roots, others of bark, others of leaf lamina. When we take a cutting, we have cells of the cortex and leaves, but no root cells; inside the twig a hormone will be produced that will communicate to the cells in the lower part of the stem, and to the new cells, which will have to specialize in preparing the roots. The rooting hormone is a substance that does this type of effect: it suggests to the cells to become part of a root. Clear that its function has nothing to do with that of fertilizers, which are simply mineral salts, which enter into the composition of the new cells. For this reason the rooting hormone is not a fertilizer, and cannot be replaced by this. Furthermore, if your fertilizer was to be diluted, it is likely that the contact of the cuttings with no diluted powdered fertilizer has "burned" the base of the twigs, which rather than rooting could rot.
