Default Hb-101

It got good reviews on Amazon:

So, I bought some.

But, then I realized that Superthrive, which I regard as snake oil, also got good reviews:

So, now, I feel depressed for being a sucker. Anyway, we'll see. I will report results of my controlled experiments.

Smile Re: Hb-101

You might find plants in the Salix family of interest to you.
A few cohorts of mine use willow water to turn their plants growth up a notch.
Superthrive is used also and they have have no issues with it.

Any product that has 1000 word testimonials on a small colorful bottle has to be good......Superthrive.
