Im brewing some Willow water - a biological method to extract the rooting hormones indolebutyric acid (IBA) and salicylic acid (SA), that are present in the Salix trees to extract as a liquid that stimulates root growth.

Then testing it on some cuttings of whitebeam and oak 👌

@phreq i guess you could describe it as a hack. It’s fairly common to extract chemicals from plants though. Willow bark for instance has a chemical similar to paracetamol, used as painkiller.
