We work extra hard to provide you with precise specifications and broad usage data. New PPM tables are generated for each batch of each chem. This is important because the weight per (scoop) volume and and exact purity differs between every batch. All chemicals have the scoop weight & purity printed on the labels. The printed scoop weight is based on the white scoop size (1/32 tsp.). As an exclusive service, buyers may request custom range PPM tables.

Unlock Full Throttle Growth Boosting!
All plants regulate their growth, development, and behavior by Plant Growth Regulator (PGR) Hormones, which in most cases move through the plant from one part to another. Fertilizer provides fuel for plants to grow, but doesn't force them to do so. Hormonal signaling dictates the the plant to do so, and the fertilizer is like the 'gasoline' fuel (energy) to carry out such signaling.Think of it as fertilizer is the fuel, where hormones are the gas pedal (or brake pedal) of various plant growth characteristics.
By treating plants with PGR's you can not only alter the ways they grow, you can boost their growth at the same time. The reason is because it requires plant energy to synthecize these signaling phytohormone chemicals. This requires energies that during treatment spares the plants from needing to 'waste', meaning more of the energies the plants have access to are spent on the actual growth that the PGR's are signalling the plants to do.

INDOLE ACETIC ACID (IAA) USAGE GUIDE
Guide Last Updated: 3-30-14 (under construction)
This is the important Auxin for mixing with Cytokinins to activate them. IBA & NAA are for rooting, and shouldn’t be sprayed onto plants if you’re not sure if its safe.Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) is a heterocyclic compound that is a phytohormone called auxin. It is a colorless solid native to many plants that serves as a potent and important auxin. IAA is predominantly produced in cells of the apex (bud) and very young leaves of a plant.
Plants can synthesize IAA by several independent biosynthetic pathways. Four of them start from tryptophan, but there is also biosynthetic pathway independent of tryptophan. Plants mainly produce IAA from tryptophan through indole-3-pyruvic acid. IAA is also produced from tryptophan through indole-3-acetaldoxime in Arabidopsis.
>Stimulates cell elongation.
>Stimulates cell division in the cambium and, in combination with cytokinins in tissue culture.
>Stimulates differentiation of phloem and xylem.
>Stimulates root initiation on stem cuttings and lateral root development in tissue culture.
>Mediates the tropistic response of bending in response to gravity and light.
>Drives apical meristem domininance.
>The auxin supply from the apical bud suppresses growth of lateral buds.
>Delays leaf senescence.
>Can inhibit or promote (via ethylene stimulation) leaf and fruit abscission.
>Can induce fruit setting and growth in some plants. Auxin is required for fruit growth and development.
>Involved in assimilate movement toward auxin possibly by an effect on phloem transport.
>Delays fruit ripening.
>Auxin plays a minor role in the initiation of flowering and development of reproductive organs, but promotes flowering in Bromeliads.
>Stimulates growth of flower parts.
>Promotes (via ethylene production) femaleness in dioecious flowers.
>Stimulates the production of ethylene at high concentrations.
>Stimulates wound response repairing.
NOTE: Responses will vary depending on the type of cytokinin, methods & amounts used, and the plant species involved.
How To Dissolve Indole Acetic Acid (IAA):
Indole Acetic Acid (IAA) vs. Various Solvents – Dissolve Results Chart:
Another Mass Spectrum exclusive. In this initial release, basic solubility was the main objective. Full solution boils (i.e. 'Microwave Boil Trick'), or overnight soaks weren't generally attempted. Partial dissolve results data was included as more rigorous pursuits may yield you results. "Melt" results were exclusive to Triacontanol. In each case the melted substance reverted to solid form upon cooling, but its seems possible that applying a secondary solvent to the solution in its hot melted state may enable post-cool suspension in the solution thereby enabling plant bioavailability. "Reaction" means the substance bubbled inside the solvent or similar results (molecular breakdown). This was most common with VOC solvents with heat applied. When heating substances keep an eye for reactions in case we didn't notice them. Beyond all that, results may vary depending on substance batch or other variables. Stay tuned for future updates with more substances, solvents and more thorough methods...
Dissolving With Alcohol:
IAA wont dissolve in water, but dissolves easily in Isopropanol (Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol). High purity alcohol (90%+) is recommended. If one drug store doesn’t have it in stock, the next one should. No heating is required. Just stir with a mini plastic spatula and let sit for 30 minutes or so. Add more alcohol as needed.
How To Dilute & Mix Indole Acetic Acid (IAA):
Diluting Indole-3-Acetic Acid:
As a general PGR dilution rule, pour the dissolved IAA liquid into water; do not add water to the IAA/alcohol solution.

Converting Indole-3-Acetic Acid (IAA) Between PPM / % / uMol:
NOTE: Treating entire plants with Gibberellic Acid (GA3) can be dangerous, especially via foliar application, and especially during vegetative growth phases. There are safe dose ranges for virtually plants, but overdosing can also eventually cause extreme plant tissue stretching. This can be as extreme as the plant literally falling over under it’s own weight. Mixing gibberellins with both auxins (IAA) and cytokinins (6BA) gives the treatment a synergizing balance and can exceed these limitations (i.e. a hardy ‘stretched out’ plant that is dense and full).
How To Use Indole-3-Acetic Acid:
Using Indole Acetic Acid To Root Cuttings:
Bamboo 1: 100 PPM (Improves Rooting & Sprouting)
Camellia luteoflora 1: 300 PPM for 1.5 Hours (Improves Rooting)
Capparis ovata 1: 500 PPM for 12 Hours (Improves Rooting) [Same specs as NAA]
Indole-3-Acetic Acid (IAA) In Cancer Research:
Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) and horseradish peroxidase (HRP) have been proposed on the basis of polymer transfer and gene-direction, they may be useful in cancer therapy. Radical-IAA IAA in the human body will attach to cells with that characterized by HRP. By this means the HRP reaction cells can be selectively killed. But because of the competitive bonding of the IAA-HRP more studies must be done before clinical studies can begin. 1
Using Indole-3-Acetic Acid To Enhance Seed Germination :
Notice: Auxins can be used to enhance the germination of certain seed types, but shouldn’t be assumed to be a general purpose seed enhancer (such as is Gibberellic Acid, Potassium Nitrate & Thiourea). This substance has proven to actually hinder germination with certain species, as their seed design already uses Auxins as an inhibitor.
