Kate and others interested,
I think it might be helpful to clarify what BAP-10 is actually doing to the plant.  It is not a growth stimulant per say.  It allows buds that do not normally grow, to break and grow.  This bud break often leads to a larger plant with more eyes.  Hostas tend to put down roots when the shoots grow, so mores shoots also means more roots.  Because of the nature of BAP's activity on quiescent Hosta buds, timing of the application of the compound is probably important (comments from users?).  Hosta grow in flushes, so BAP would appear to be most effective when a flush is beginning to mature so that a new flush is stimulated.  The compound has a long lifetime in the plant so that there is a residual effect after treatment.  Like all growth regulators, I am sure that you can overdo the amount of BAP treatment.  At that point I would imagine that root growth would be inhibited.
One thing I do not know, is whether BAP inhibits flowering.  Anyone have an answer to this?
