Gibberellic Acid powder 3 capsule and Alcohol kit


Description: Gibberellic Acid (GA3) KIT.
Each capsule containes sufficient quantity (100mg minimum) of Ga3 to make a 500ml mix of water solution at 100-250 parts per million (ppm).
GA3 is best disolved in a small amount of rubbing alcohol (iso propyl alcohol) This is also supplied in the kit.
Just fill the capsule with a small quantity of iso propyl alcohol, shake and once its disolved, mix with water to the required dilution.
Only use as much alcohol to disolve the powder, we have disolved the powder in less than 1ml.
It is best to make the solution in a container with a lid, an empty jam jar is good, as the disolved ga3 can be added then topped up with water and the lid put back on, then shaken until mixed.
For breaking the dormancy in Sarracenia ssp., tuberous Drosera, etc., soak the seeds in GA3 for 24 hrs before potting up. It is best to wrap the seeds in kitchen paper before soaking to avoid the seeds from floating!
For the seeds of Byblis gigantean and Roridula dentate, a stronger solution will be needed - make up to a 200ml of solution. The seeds should be soaked for 24 hrs.
Undiluted the GA3 will store for 3 years if refridgerated. However, once mixed it loses effacy within a week.
Although GA is not listed as a 'poison', the following precautions should be observed:
Flush with water any GA3 that may get into the eye.
Avoid skin contact if possible and wash away any contact with soap and water.
Avoid ingestion of GA3.
