2. What Are The Effects of 6-Benzylaminopurine? 6-Benzylaminopurine has ben found (1) to increase the thickness of stems, increase the leaf surface and the number of side branches. At the same time root growth was slowed down. This is very likely because the larger leaves provide more nutrients to the plant and reduce the need for root mass. At higher concentrations of 300 to 400ppm stem elongation was reduced. 1) http://altair.chonnam.ac.kr/~horti/vegeta/reseMan/chungsj/re1.htm
3. How Does 6-Benzylaminopurine Affect the Number of Branches? The Ontario Hosta Society reports (1) that wetting a hosta-leaf with 1000 PPM to 3000 PPM will cause the plant to branch out simmilar to cutting the end of the branch without the damage that pruning would cause. A Plumeria Society Research Bulletin (2)also reports that if a branch is pruned 6-Benzylaminopurine will generate more branches than prunning alone. 1) www.rittenhouse.ca/hortmag/Hosta/Hosta-Spring00.htm 2) www.theplumeriasociety.org/prb/prb_1-2.html
4. How Is Benzylaminopurine Used to Improve Flowering? One Benzylaminopurine medicinal marijuana user has reported that he used the BA6 at 300 PPM 4 weeks into bloom and the results were amazing, with the flowers being noticably bigger on the sprayed plants than the unsprayed plants 1 weeks after application. He tried it at 150 PPM but 300 PPM being better.
