Tomato bloom spray?
    #686772 - 09/29/13 05:09 PM (3 years, 6 months ago)

Has anyone ever used Tomato bloom spray? Link goes to a site explaining what it is.

"Hormones
Tomato flowers produce the hormone Auxin when they've been pollinated, which stimulates the plant to produce fruit. Tomato blossom sprays contain a synthetic version of this hormone. Tomato plants sprayed with these products produce fruit without pollination, a process known as parthenocarpy."

Sounds like something good, but I couldn't find any info in regards to using it for this hobby. I still have a ton to learn in the somewhat overwhealming topic of fertilizing btw, but I know this could potentially be good.

Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

Well marijuana already produces flowers without needing to be pollinated.  They are a photo sensitive plant, changes in light pattern is what induces flowering.

I was thinking maybe this stuff promotes more bud sites or sort of simulates training techniques.

I'm gonna say hermie promoter. In tomatoes it promotes fruiting without pollination according to what I'm reading. I'm gonna guess it promotes whatever process the plant needs to do by pollination and in our plant that is making seeds.

Tomatoes are hard to grow because they need to be pollinated first. I tried growing tomatoes but none showed up. If you grow indoors someone told me they need an electric toothbrush/vibration on it to help stimulate it pollinating itself. Once the tomato flower is pollinated (usually from itself, a complex process) it produces the seed bearing fruit. Similar with bud, but instead of the seed bearing fruit it just grows seeds inside the flower, tuning the buds into seed.  Bud plants differentiate between male and female, tomatoes don't.

The product tricks the female part of the flower to thinking it is pregnant and fruits as normal. I'm pretty sure your not going to get much out of it for cannabis, maybe some seeds if it works on that level, but I think the plant chemistry might be too different.

It was just the part about synthetic auxins that caught my attention. It's my vaigue understanding that training stimulates the plants production of auxins.

If it does create hermies of cause seeds somehow I'd actually be interested since I'd like to get seeds out of at least 1 plant. There's a way to get a plant to flower a bunch and still produce seeds isn't there?

The tomato bush I grew this year went out of control and grew like 7 feet tall and got way too heavy to support itself. I can't even see inside it to see what's growing without digging my way in.
