They recommend using that product on ornamentals only for a reason. Why would you spray a potential carcinogen on to a plant that you will be ingesting.

Aren’t you the one constantly bitching about “noobs” spreading bad info around this forum? SMH

I don’t doubt that it has at least some potential in increasing cannabis yields since it’s effects are so drastic, but you would need to use a very very low dose and time it really well, because otherwise you end up with super spindly and lanky growth that is mostly stems and not bud sites.

There is some info to read on forums about combining Ga3 and Jasmonic Acid to increase trich production, but not very much scientific date involving cannabis and hormones at all..

Just know that Ga3 is insanely potent. If you have very pure powder, it takes a ridiculously small amount to make a spray potent enough to cause a plant to look like it was from a different species with crazy growth lol

GA-3
Gibberellic acid is used by a lot of major seed companies for feminizing seeds.

I am currently spraying a branch of a 707 headband I will soon be putting into flower in an attempt to create that one branch to turn male. To collect its pollen.

What I have done is isolate a single branch, Spray that branch with a

150ppm(.5) of GA3 and distilled water for a week before entering flower, Continue to do so for the first two weeks of flower.

Read this is an old grow book I use for reference. Ill try to remember to post my findings.

DIDN’T READ THE RESPONSES JUST THE QUESTION SO SORRY IF IM REPEATING STUFF

Gibberellic acid is used on NUMEROUS crops that we all eat. (oranges, grapes ect) it is a naturally occurring hormone in these fruits (not positive of this but pretty sure) that causes huge growth when added in larger amounts. I have seen gibberellic-acid used on lettuce and it made heads of lettuce the size of your desk. Thus i was curious just as the OP is about its potential with MJ. All of the research i have done has led me to believe that it has limited to no value in MJ cultivation. MJ is already such an impressive producer in terms of growth in both veg and flower that it’s addition generally leads to stretching to an extent that is not good for indoor growing. It also has been documented to cause herms, and is even used in the production of feminized seeds (they used hermies to make fem seeds). So it may possibly help to shorten the veg cycle, but the risk of herms and extreme stretching limit its use for indoor cult and probably outdoor as well.

I have never used gibberellic acid on MJ. It is readily available if anyone wants to give it a go and i would love to hear the results, but i don’t recommend it from what ive read!

so im sure some people on here know what this hormone is, its a plant growth hormone and causes plants to get bigger usually.. im just wondering if anyone… ]]>
