Kln

Would there be anyone that may be able to let me know what there is in Australia that I can use as a substitute for KLN. I have been to some hydro and hardware stores but no-one has heard of it. I am not sure what to use in place.

I am not sure what KLN is. These guys have stuff usually that you can use on orchids:

Sage Horticultural | Industry, Glass Houses, Propagation, Misting Equipment

Have you considered perlite and vermiculite for Semi Hydro? Cheap and easy to get.

I'm not sure it's available in Australia but your best bet would be to contact the manufacturer and see what they have to say. Email the person in charge of International orders through the "contact us" link at the top of the site....

Kat,
Do you know if KLN is just a rooting hormone item in dyna grow product lines?? if so then all they need to do is find a good rooting hormone product in AU. If its more than a rooting hormone I don't know then. I will have to go find some and look at the label .....

I've read somewhere that KLN contains two hormones - IBA and NAA. One stimulates root production, another one - root growth. Another element is vitamin B1.

Tha's what I read through the Internet resources, anyway.

So KLN is a rooting hormone? I assumed you were talking about a semi hydro product.

There is definitely rooting hormone available but I don't know what it's called.

Here is a description of it from a USA Hydroponic store
Dyna Gro K-L-N Quart

if it is sold in Australia it may be under a different name, currently am using several with same products but different product name
all are basically a growth promoter rather than an outright fertilizer.
Product I am now using is called Amino-K
Check out you local Hydroponic store to see if the sell it.

Thank you Ron, I will try to get some Amino-K, I have been around the hydroponic stores and nobody knew what KLN was. I'll be able to go back now and get something they should have, I'll take the description of KLN as well. All this info is so good, Thank you
