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.

How To Dissolve 1-Naphthaleneacetic Acid:
Naphthaleneacetic Acid 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 Using Isopropanol:
Naphthalene Acetic Acid readily dissolves with Isopropanol (Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol). Using 70% will work dissolve NAA just fine, but the higher the purity of Isopropanol the better.
Dissolving Using Methanol (Methyl Hydrate):
NAA dissolves in Methanol roughly the same as with Isopropanol.
How To Dilute & Mix 1-Naphthaleneacetic Acid:
Diluting Naphthalene Acetic Acid In Water:
Slowly pour the dissolved NAA into your water solution ‘broth’, not the other way around. You should stir the water at the same time, or simply ‘rock’ the water vessel once to create a back and forth ‘wave’ that should last until you’re done pouring.

Indole-3-Butyric Acid (IBA)
Sodium Nitrophenolates (i.e. Atonik)
NOTES: Although NAA 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).

How To Make 1-Naphthaleneacetic Acid (NAA) Plant Tissue Culture Solution:
1. Stock solution of NAA 1,000 ppm
Weigh 0.2 g of NAA and dissolve well with some NaOH 1N drops.
2. Add 200 ml of distilled water.
One ml of stock solution (1,000 ppm) contains 1 mg of NAA.
How To Use 1-Naphthaleneacetic Acid (NAA) 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.

Environmental Fate/Exposure Summary:
1-Naphthaleneacetic acid’s production may result in its release to the environment through various waste streams; it’s use as a plant growth regulator will result in its direct release to the environment. If released to air, an estimated vapor pressure of 1.6X10-5 mm Hg at 25 deg C indicates 1-naphthaleneacetic acid will exist in both the vapor and particulate phases in the ambient atmosphere. Vapor-phase 1-naphthaleneacetic acid will be degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals; the half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be 10 hrs. Particulate-phase 1-naphthaleneacetic acid will be removed from the atmosphere by wet and dry deposition. Photolysis may be an important environmental fate process in the atmosphere based upon aqueous photolysis data. If released to soil, 1-naphthaleneacetic acid is expected to have moderate mobility based upon an estimated Koc of 390. The pKa of 1-naphthaleneacetic acid is 4.23, indicating that this compound will primarily exist in the dissociated form in the environment and anions generally do not adsorb more strongly to organic carbon and clay than their neutral counterparts. Volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process because anions do not volatilize. 1-Naphthaleneacetic acid has a reported half-life in soil of 10 days, attributed to microbial degradation. If released into water, 1-naphthaleneacetic acid is not expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment based upon the estimated Koc. A pKa of 4.23 indicates 1-naphthaleneacetic acid will exist almost entirely in the ionized form at pH values of 5 to 9 and anions do not volatilize. Biodegradation is not expected to be a fast environmental fate process in water based upon a 0% theoretical BOD using activated sludge and the MITI test. A BCF range of 0.5-4.2 suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low. Hydrolysis is not expected to be an important environmental fate process since this compound lacks functional groups that hydrolyze under environmental conditions. Occupational exposure to 1-naphthaleneacetic acid may occur through inhalation and dermal contact with this compound at workplaces where 1-naphthaleneacetic acid is produced or used. Monitoring data indicate that the general population may be exposed to 1-naphthaleneacetic acid via inhalation of ingestion of contaminated fruits.
