Re: Bap 10


>Just to lay this to rest am I right in thinking grown hosta are 
>treated at 3000ppm?		

The concentration can vary from 1000 to 3000 ppm.  Some hostas will 
respond well with the lower dose, some need the higher dose and some 
may even require a higher concentration.  Start with 1000 ppm and if 
it works try a lower concentration to see if you can get away with 
using less BAP; if it doess't work well try a higher concentration 
until you get some results.

>And seedlings at 1000ppm?

You mean new growth, not necessarily seedlings?  Seedlings can be 
mature plants.  On new growth I would start with 1000 ppm.  The 
concentration isn't all that critical within a certain range.

>And finally (for now) what type of sprayer do you use for the small 

Q-tip!  Those things that you clean your ears with!  Work well for 
applying BAP in small amounts.  It's difficult to spray the stuff in 
small quantities and not get it over yourself.  Supposely it isn't a 
dangerous chemical to use, but you still want to be careful.  I tried 
some cheap perfune bottles with a pump action sprayer - it just didn't 
work out well.  A good purfume bottle with a bulb type sprayer might 
work better.  Q-tips are cheap, but they get to be a bit of a problem 
if you have a lot of plants to treat.
