The 'correct' answer to my question is

Hormodin is a rooting hormone which was terminated in 1994 by the US
EPA. It is not legal now.

The exact replacement is Rhizopon AA in use, product designation number,
and active ingredient, used to promote rooting of cuttings by dry dip
Rhizopon AA #1 (0.1% IBA)
Rhizopon AA #2 (0.3% IBA)
Rhizopon AA #3 (0.8% IBA)

I found that the US master distributor is V-J Growers Supply 

ps: Sigma only sells products which are illegal to use for plant growing
except in the lab and they sell only limited qty and not for growers.
