you can increase flower production by "damaging" the plant thus stressing it out and it will bush and flower out really well, this way no need to use chemicals.. another technique which works excellent with perennials is to tie down the plants when its in vegetative growth, tie down the branches to let more light into it thus creating more bud sites, you only need to tie them down for 4 to 5 days maximum and then relase and you will see the difference straight away...

I just talked to pride seeds in lahore for epsom salt and they are asking Rs. 1000 for 1kg and they do not have GA-3, more green and channandin do not have this stuff. kindly suggest some reasonable retailer who has this kind of stuff.

If you are interested in buying epsom salt, we can make a group purchase for lahore. At the very least, we 2 can share :)

sure, why not, even 500gms will be more than enough for me. If someone else wants to share then ok otherwise we will go ahead with the purchase.

I think the best place in Lahore to get all these nutrients and hormones will be Akbari Mandi. I plan to go there some day and store up for the year :D

GA 3 is also used by cheats for increasing the size of their bloom's prior to showing them at competitions and galas,,, apparently the hormone when correctly applied to the developing bud can boost the size of the flower to three times its normal size... ebay is a good source for the product.

It is also used commercially on some grape varieties to increase them to four or fve times the size,,,,,,\No but its really weird eating grapes the size of small plums or apricots
