No. Spend $25 on a big jug (1.5lbs I think?) of osmocote plus fertilizer balls (less if you can find it locally, which is probably a good bet this time of year). It's the one with the orange cap. Then spend $5-10 on a bag of a few hundred gel caps (Amazon). And you can make enough root tabs to last you the rest of your life. Okay, you might have to buy some more capsules, but you get the point.
