Default Re: Growing hormones, stimulators experiments. A lill bit of practical knowledge.

1) For the first shot i aimed the Megafol of Valagro company.

a) This magicall elixir ought to protect my plants from stress. This stress might be coused by drought, rapid temperature changes etc. Does it work?
Ive used it few times on my basjoo. They really doesnt like dry days and full sun. Despite the use of the Megafol several times, they still fade.
Ive tested that stuff on Daturas, and they stoped to collapse.
b) All my 5 kinds of bananas loves that stuff. They grows faster. Day after spraing, they are more green.
c) I see there are less spider mates problems this year.
e) Megafol does not damage seedlings, it also does not damage freshly sprouted seeds. I did not notice any influence on seedlings.
f) Ive used it on other garden plants. They are significantly larger than plants which wasnt sprayed.

2) Titanite
Titanium is a naturally occurring element in the soil. The producer declares that we certainly have not enough of this element in the soil. Plants growing in alkaline earth need a lot of titanium. If we supply it to them in the form of a supplement, they will get super power - producer declares also.
Is it true?
a) Tested 3 times (once a month) on few kinds of naners.
The effect is crazy. Plants are far more stronger than were. New leafs looks more hard. The plants stretch out to the sun and abound in the green mass, as if they were about to explode. This stuff is really crazy. Ive used it on my sunflower also, the effect was the same.

3) Asahi sl
sodium para-nitrophenolate (a compound from the nitrophenol derivative group) - 0.3% (3 g in 1 liter of the product),
sodium ortho-nitrophenolate (a compound from the nitrophenol derivative group) - 0.2% (2 g in 1 liter of the product),
Sodium 5-nitrogwajacolate (a compound from the nitrophenol derivative group) - 0.1% (1 g in 1 liter of the agent).
''This stuff is a growth regulator, in liquid form for alternation with water. Asahi SL has an impact on higher yield and quality improvement..''
a) Ive used this stuff on all my naners from seedlings to mature plants.
The plants seems to doesnt like it. They get a strange dark green color after that. They seem to look like they are over-fertilized, not very vital, I do not know how to determine it. In my opinion theres no ''wow'' effect. Asahi killed two seedlings.

Sorry, I wrote this note a bit casually. I will try to expand it when time permits. I hope that someone may find my observations useful, just as yours are useful for me. Best wishes
Did you perform controlled experiments?

3. This is generically known as Atonik, if you want to Google it. I have some from a Chinese supplier, but, I haven't tested it on banana yet.

Another, that might interest you is

2-diethylaminoethyl-3,4-dichlorophenylether (DCPTA) Heliconia 30 micromole/L sugarbeet 30 micromole/L sugarbeet 10 ppm tomato 10 ppm

Molecular weight, 262.18 g/mol -> 30 micromole/L = 7865 x 10-6 g/L = 7.865 mg/L = 7.865 ppm

freely soluble in water and polar solvents

I have DCPTA, but, again haven't tried it on musa.
