I came across this article (one of many) about using willow trees too make your own rooting hormone. If any of you have ever tried to root a willow, you know how easy it is for them. You can take advantage of their abundant auxin levels. I've tried this on Nepenthes, as well as a few non-carnivores. I haven't seen any difference in sets versus synthetic powders with indole 3 butyric acid. You do need too let them soak for a bit for it to be effective though. On the plus side, it isn't toxic and you don't need to worry about rubbing it off when placing cuttings in the medium.
