I have 3 gm giberallic acid, planned to use it on Caladiums just before the rainy season arrives for their inflorescence formation and pollination.

Also used IBA for rooting cuttings.

I use a combination of BAP with NPK and gibberallic acid.The result is unbelievable.I got my BAP from Sigma USA.If you can find 6-BAP from chemical markets in karachi you'll be amazaed by it's results.

Use Colonex or if you want to be more scientific , use IBA at 1% strength.
