Re: BAP & "increases"

There has been much discussion about the use of BAP-10 to stimulate hostas
to break dormancy in buds which exist at the base of the leaf petiole, where
it is attached to the crown of the plant.  "Increases" are simply these new
plants.  It is much too early to know whether the BAP-10 is totally
responsible for all of the increases, since I have only one plant of GREY
GHOST and can't compare it with an untreated plant of the same size, but I
have never had a potted single plant throw this many increases in 7 weeks,
so I am assuming that the BAP-10 is working.  I used the 30cc : 1000cc
strength.  Bob Savage

GHOST, Bob Solberg's 2000 "hosta for clubs", which I purchasted at the
Tri-State Hosta Society plant sale the end of March.

week 2 increases showed and now there are 4 growing rapidly and one enlarged
bud at the base of the lowest leaf.  BANNANA MUFFINS and MAUI BUTTERCUPS
were also treated.  Nothing on BM but MB has one large increase.  Bob Savage
