Re: $31,680., $47,520., or $115,560. That's a lot of BAP 10!

The easiest way to make BAP solutions is with concentrated base (NaOH or
KOH).  There is a method posted at the www.RowenGardens.com (go to the TC
Information section and how to make media page).  Joe is correct in saying
the BAP is quite stable, but the stuff will go out of solution as carbon
dioxide in the air neutralizes the base.  I still think you can buy the
stuff from Plantwise at a lower cost than you can make it.  If you find an
inexpensive source of the powder, I would like to know.

Also, I believe that you can apply the stuff too early in the season which
would limit its effect.  Plant growth regulator levels in plants are
dynamically regulated so that there are different balances of auxins,
cytokinins (BAP), and others (abscisic acid, jasmonic acid, etc) at
different growth phases.  What you are trying to do is change the cytokinin
level when buds are dormant so that they grow instead of staying quiescent.
Early in the growth cycle, cytokinins are probably not limiting so adding
more would have little effect.
