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. Due to the lengths and ongoing growth of the chem guide's, printed instructions aren't generally included. CURRENT PGR SPECIALS:
-U.S. PGR orders over $25 ship free via First Class by entering coupon code "PGR", or if you pay the standard shipping it will ship via Priority Mail.
-All PGR orders include free chem sample(s).

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.

K-IBA USAGE GUIDE
K-IBA Guide Last Updated: 3-30-14 (under construction)
Auxin Functions: >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. >Activates cytokinins. >Stimulates wound response repairing. NOTE: Responses will vary depending on the type of cytokinin, methods & amounts used, and the plant species involved.
Indole Butryic Acid Commercial Uses: >Among uses, IBA is used to propagate seedless plants such as tomato and cucumber. >Annuals: such as tomato, basal, squash, melon, cucumber, cotton (for oil) >Perennial plants: such as strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, lavender, rosemary, thyme, mint, oregano, salvia, sage >Woody plants: such as grape, apple, rose (for rose hips)
How To Dissolve K-Indole Butyric Acid:
K-Indole Butyric Acid (IBA-K) 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.

Converting Indole-3-Butyric Acid (IBA) Between PPM / g/Mol / % / Mol/L / g/L / mg/L / mMol / µMol:
Synergists: Fulvic Acid Naphthalene Acetic Acid (NAA) Sodium Nitrophenolates (i.e. Atonik) NOTES: Although IBA is an auxin, it’s best used for rooting whereas IAA is best used for upper plant growth purposes. 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).
Indole Butyric Acid Specifications:
Purity: This listing is for ‘98% Spec’ IBA. The ‘spec purity’ means that the product will be 98% (in this case) or greater. The current in-stock batch is 99.2%, but bulk back-orders might be less.
1-10 Gram amounts are currently packed in poly (clear) ziplock bags.
25+ Gram amounts come in foil mylar ziplock bags.
.5-1 KG bulk amounts come in sealed foil mylar bags.
Storing Indole Butyric Acid (IBA): Keep liquid solutions from bright light (Especially direct sun). As with all PGR’s, keep liquid solutions refrigerated. Compound dust preparations should remain active for six months or more if stored in a closed opaque container inside a refrigerator. Lanolin paste preparations should keep indefinitely if stored in a well-sealed opaque glass vessel within a refrigerator.
Organic Specifications: To be allowed in ‘Organic Production’ for purposes of plant propagation from cuttings, for use on annual, perennial and woody plants. Application shall be made in enclosed structures. Rates shall be limited to aqueous solution up to 2500 ppm IBA and dry powder up to 0.8% IBA. 1
