"This stuff has been the biggest game changer for me in my plant obsession. I now have a whole host of beautiful full plants that were once single growth points." @planty.aroid,bish

"After only growing one leaf in the past 5 months I thought I would purchase some Urban Botanist cloning paste and 14 days later I have new growth. I also put some on a few other hoyas that were doing nothing and I am so impressed by the growth." @hoya_jungle_nz

"Philodendron Gloriosum. So happy this gorgeous plant is growing so happily.
I put some cloning paste on a while ago and its now growing another growth point!!" @heartleaf.haven 

"I have had this for 3 weeks with nothing happening, so I got Urban Botanist cloning paste and within a couple of days I have little roots starting!" @nz_plant_mumma

Why all the fuss about cloning paste?

Grow baby grow! Urban Botanist Cloning Paste may look small but it packs a big growth boost in every pea-sized application. New Zealand formulated and produced, right here in Auckland, made for NZ growing conditions.

The natural lanolin base means it stays put when applied, even with watering - while it busily works away, tricking your indoor houseplant in to producing new shoots like magic.

The active ingredient in this clever cloning paste is cytokinin, which causes cell division and new shoot production. Another big benefit of being made locally is small batch production so when you choose Urban Botanist you know the plant hormone is as fresh as possible. 

What can cloning paste be used for?

Use it to fast-track growth on a new cutting.

Help mother plants recover after being chopped & propped.

Encourage stems further down to put out new branches for bushier plants - without having to cut off growth tips!

Give dormant or slow growers a kick to speed up.

That's a lot of goodness from every dab!

How much do you need to apply?

Just one, pea-sized dab per node. Don't be too eager though, apply it to a maximum of 3 nodes or buds per plant or you'll use up your plant's energy and slow down growth. For best results we reckon go with 1 or 2 nodes / buds at a time.

How long does cloning paste take to work?

Some plants show dramatic results as soon as 1 week later, but 3 to 4 weeks is more typical depending on a few factors.

Make sure to check the full how to use instructions before first use, and watch the video below (note the video shows the old smaller bottles - the new bigger 9 gram tins give you more product for the same price) - same product inside.
