Dear Aroiders:  I got this message from a couple of Egyptian horticulturists who are asking questions about the use of IAA (which I assume is indole acidtic acid.  If anyone knows anything about the use if this substance and how it affects plants please respond to help Wegdan and Mohammed.


Tom Croat 


Dear Wegdan and Mohammed:


            I am afraid that I do not know anything about the used of IAA. (I assume that this is Indoe Acetic Acid?).and how it operates.  I am going to post it to Aroid-L in order that others might contact you with more information.  I have taken the liberty to improve your English so that others might better appreciate your iinterests and what your questions are about.

hi Dr Croat

we hope you are fine

we want to ask you about something to induce our anthurium to produce seeds.  We didn't use GA as mentioned in topics we have read but we  have used IAA & have produced five inflorescencs  without any deformance but we noticed that our mother plant is not doing welll.  Some told us that this is because of unsuitable light.  So we have to change its position because of poor light.  Some tell us that is owing to the use of nitrogen fertilizer.  However we feel it may because of the use of IAA.  We need to know whether the use of IAA might cause this damages to our mother plant. We will attach some photos to give you better picture about we are talking about.  We also want to tell you we are planning to go into horticulture business & we will tell you more about our plans later.


yours abdullah & wegdan
