Hi everyone!
Did you ever heard about Superthrive, or did you use it? I found this product while reading about "forcing" proliferations and plant growth, using plant hormones.
Many swear about it, it contains vitamins and hormones (still don't know which because I can't find ingredients anywhere), they say that plants growth dramatically fast and flowers (or fruits) appear very early and are bigger.
The product is this https://superthrive.com/

Any thoughts about it?
Thank you I tip my hat to you.

I've used it in the past for a variety of plants. It worked fine, but no better than a lot of the other products. I mainly use Osmacoat and fish emulsion now.

Thank you Karen.
Do you really need to use just one drop of products at a time?
I read people use it for roots growth also. I can't decide about it, it's not so much expensive if you just need few drops per gallon.

I've used this product for many years, on the advice of a daylily grower. I use it myself to establish new plants into the garden. I had been told it helped with transplant shock. After years of using it now, yes, just a drop per gallon, I wouldn't go without it. Here I have seen a difference in rooting and overall acclimation to the garden. I use it for everything I am transplanting from vegetables to trees and everything in between.

So it's different for everyone, different experiences as the ones I was reading.
But does it have hormones? Which, if you know it? I read it's a complement to fertilizer.
Maybe I'll give it a try on seedlings and bulbs I planted the past month. One drop per gallon should go a long way.

Napthalene acetic acid or 1-Napthyl acetic acid if you will. Careful, to much hormone is toxic. As usual follow instructions.

This is one of many Auxins, a plant hormone family. It works when you have none, as biochar works in poor soil but not in rich soil that already contains carbon. One might say that some plants prosper from it while another might say the opposite, but the separate environs and additives such as fertilizer are rarely discussed in a proper context so it all confuses a person . One might say that if all the growers talking had a similar barren substrate such as hydroponic mediums, then the most influence of the hormone might present itself most clearly.

There are 5 or so groups of plant hormones.

Auxin
Cytokinins
Gibberellins
Abscisic Acid
Ethylene

Auxins work with cytokinin, such as is found in fertilome fruit set spray.

Here is a link for a little more informational entertainment and perhaps you will find some search terms also. Sorry about the asterisk, I am new and not allow to point to anything outside this site yet. Please replace them with periods.

edit for Strigolactones which are a class of plant hormones that stimulate branching in plants and the growth of symbiotic arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in the soil. They also impede shoot branching and trigger the germination of parasitic plant seeds. Evidently the space programs are eyeballing this family for use with plants in space.
