*1.2.3.4 in sort to show the effects.

To sum up, 10ppm IBA solution, 20ppm NAA solution, 5ppm, 30ppm alginate oligosaccharide solution can promote the growth of the aerial part of lettuce to a certain extent.

In terms of rooting, 5ppm alginate oligosaccharide and 20ppm NAA solution have obvious rooting-promoting effect, and the root length of lettuce was significantly increased.

As an alginate oligosaccharide extracted from natural seaweed, it only needs 5ppm, the rooting effect can be comparable to that of 20ppm NAA, its effect of promoting germination is also very good, which is more cost-effective and more environmentally friendly.
