    I've been thinking about these, but not that long. Still trying to master just growing them. It would be an interesting experiment. Nipping off the meristem, or growing tip, you're already messing with auxin, removing the inhibition to form side shoots. Gibberilin you'll just get a taller, lankey plant if aquatic macrophytes can even absorb them. Don't know.

    No, not in aquatic plant tanks, they do induce a one time effect on flowering in some Crypt species that are grown emergent.

    You cna buy SuperThrive at any local store that has these in there and at high concentrations etc.

    Snake oil, won't hurt, but will not help either.

    I'll discuss hormones later in one of the articles but it'll be awhile.
    Small potatoes.
