Does anyone know any reason NOT to use rooting hormone on plants being grown for sale?
This text appears on the warning label on Greenlight Rooting Hormone:
" It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with it's labeling.
Not for use with plants being grown for sale or other commercial use or for commercial seed production or for research purposes."
The "Federal Law ... inconsistent with it's labeling" part is on almost any product more toxic than Coca-Cola.
I wondered about the "not for use with plants being grown for sale" part. I'd be inclined to totally ignore it, but even then I wondered WHY anyone would say it.
And I assume it would be unenforceable. Wouldn't every trace oif hormone disap;ear by the time a cutting was sold?
