Dear Lester,

The powder form is available at chemical suppliers all over the place.

I purchased it from a local company.  They do however ship nationwide.  The phone is 954-327-0900.

A bit pricey though... about $25/gram.

in doing the same, I purchased some giberillic acid solution, diluted it 
according to instructions and sprayed it on my plants.  I have no idea what 
the solution truly contained and can't recall the manufacturer.

I'm considering experimenting with initiating growth in hibernating tubers 
by spraying with giberillic acid.  I read the discussions about the 
difficulties of creating solutions of the compound and began to wonder if 
the diluted solution is still available through any resource.

Does anyone have suggestions on where we non-professionals can purchase 
either the solution (ideally) or else some of the dry, 
difficult-to-dissolve powder?
