Imio Root is a natural alternative to synthetic rooting gels for propagating healthier clones and better transplants. Made of naturally occurring microbes* (fungi and bacteria), Imio Root supports the development and architecture of the root system, reduces transplant shock, and improves vegetative growth. It can be used on a wide variety of plants including, but not limited to, cannabis, tomatoes, roses, grape vines, lavender, begonias and grasses.
The natural production of plant hormones and the symbiotic relationship between microbes and plants provides healthier vegetative growth and ongoing support through flower. Root is shipped as a freeze-dried powder so that the microbes are shelf-stable and protected in transit. Each Root packet contains a plant-based gelling agent (guar-gum) to provide a convenient, dippable gel consistency.
Imio products are developed through extensive research, and have been vetted by University Labs and growers across wide-ranging geographies, cultivation types, and scales. Many synthetic cloning products are carcinogenic, mutagenic, and their use is increasingly restricted. Imio Root offers a better option for people, plants, and our planet.
Imio is committed to sustainability in all that they do. Root will be shipped to you in a compostable pouch, with a glass jar (for 100 cut sizes and above) to mix and store the gel.

Prior to use, activate powdered microbes by adding the appropriate volume of water to the pouch (Home Grower size, treats 16 cuts) or jar (Root 20ml, 200ml, 500ml, 1L). If stored in the refrigerator, your activated Root will last for 45 days. If you’re storing Root in your refrigerator between uses, please allow 15 min+ for the microbes to warm up before using them.

- Root 1L (treats 5,000 cuts) - 1L water
For the Home Grower size (16 cuts): Cut open pouch and add 1 tsp (5mL) of water directly to the pouch. After adding the water, fold the top of the pouch over two times and mix/shake to dissolve. Set the pouch aside for 10-15 minutes to allow the product to gel.
For the 20ml, 200ml, 500ml, and 1L sizes: Cut open the pouch and pour powder into the provided Imio glass jar. Add water to the “fill to here line” that coordinates with your product size. Place the lid on the jar and shake for 10 seconds to dissolve. Set the jar aside for 10-15 minutes to allow the product to gel.
To propagate cuttings/clones:
Dip the cut end of the plant into gel and swirl for 3-5 seconds. Place treated cutting into desired growth medium or propagation vessel
To water in with seedlings:
Add 1 teaspoon / 5mL of Root per gallon of water and shake or mix vigorously to incorporate into water. Water plants as normal.
