Re: BAP10 / Mix it yourself?
Jim Anderson stated BA is used in tissue culture. I have also heard that
you can buy the raw material and mix it yourself.
Is it worth mixing BAP yourself ...............(tips appreciated)
Or is it best to buy the pre-mixed BAP10 and not worry about the
My guess would be that BAP10 applied in the spring would have more of a
desired effect than if it was applied this late in the fall. (guess is
the key word)
I hope BAP10 turns out to be everything it appears to be.

BAP-10 is used as a foliage spray (they are saying 3000 PPM plus a
sticker (Joy detergent)) but can also be used as a soak of the crown. I
would use it as a spray. I do not know what the affect of spraying this
time of year would be. You might force new eye breaks which would not
help much now, but then again you might just get more dormant buds. I
would request some other input on this question of someone who may have
tried late treatments (has anyone got data on this?). I imagine the
best time to spray would be after the first flush of growth starts to
get some size so that you stimulate a strong second flush (comments from
users?). Another question is what affect does BAP-10 have on how fast a
plant reaches maturity. Forcing all those buds may tend to keep the
plant juvenile. On of the advantages of tissue cultured plants (we use
BAP in TC) is that they are very juvenile and tend to grow fast similar

Jim, I just ordered some BAP-10 and am going to try using it on many
of my new purchases from this year. Couple of questions.
First, is it something you spray on foliage or just the ground around
the plants? Second, would you say that it's better to do during spring,
after the plant breaks dormancy, or at a later time? Is it too late to
do now, since fall is right around the corner?
