What's BAP

Good morning, Sammy:

BAP is a natural plant hormone which stimulates the active growth of the 
axial dormant bud in hosta.  In another words, it is an alternative to tissue 
culture, rossing, or zumbarizing for the serious home hostaholic.

BAP is the chemical shorthand for N6-benzylaminopurine or benzyladenine (BA) 
which is the same chemical by another name.  BAP is sold through chemical 
companies, Research Organics, for example, in powder form, 1 000ppm or 10 
000ppm solutions.  It is commercially sold as BAP-10 (100 000ppm) and is 
available through two suppliers.

In the last hosta journal, Dr. Ed Elslager wrote two articles on BAP usage as 
well as the resurrection of 'Galaxy', I believe.  Ed just completed a course 
on the use of BAP at the last Hosta College.

Hope this helps to answer your question...Hostally,
