Have GA3? Curious to see what it's capable of? You came to the right place! This thread is where you can post any experiments you're conducting with GA3. Please list the source of the GA3 and the concentration so we can duplicate your experiment and see if the results are consistent. The more in depth you can describe your process, the better we can collectively understand how it can benefit all of us.

Today's experiment: 5 ppm GA3 solution with Gibberelic acid crystals from RPI. Administered to drosera burmannii and nidiformis seedlings, vft from tissue culture, drosera capensis, drosera capillaris, sarracenia 'love bug' 'judith hindle' and 'yellow jacket', sansevieria, eincorn, and one leaf of n. Tobaica from tissue culture. Will update with changes on Saturday.Image

Update: preliminary observations of treated D. burmannii samples show increased growth and deeper coloration compared to untreated samples. It may be difficult to see. Similar results are not present in other samples as of yet. ImageImage

Minor leaf burn on the vft, the burmannii have developed stems on samples with GA3 added, which is strange. Unsure about the sars and neps, but no damage visible and decent growth.ImageImageImageImage

Updates! The Nep is responding well to the GA3, I managed to get D. filiformis to sprout after a 48 hour soak in 10 ppm GA3, and I've started some Sarracenia seeds with GA3. I'll keep y'all updated when they start going off.

Time to germination was two weeks in total including the time in the soak. Attached is the nep picture that I forgot to post last time. Color is a little off due to the blurple light it is under.Image

Still lightning quick compared to the standard stratification process which I'm testing it against. I started them all at the same time and it will take a few more weeks before I can plant them.
