Description: Gibberellic Acid or GA3 is used for the stimulation of germination of difficult seeds.
The GA3 will be supplied as a powder in a small pill like capsule of sufficient quantity (minimum 100mg) to make a 500ml mix of water solution at 100-250 parts per million (ppm).
Ga3 must be first dissolved in iso propyl alcohol then mixed with water to the desired dilution.
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.
