Hi godbody,

I'm not trying to derail your thread....just apply its content to "the old ways" and how/where we can get these hormones in nature.

copy/paste---

 

Every vegetable garden deserves a healthy patch of nettles. Rudolph Steiner, scientist and mystic, advocated biodynamic sprays made from nettle to increase vegetative growth, particularly in dry weather (it also makes an excellent aphid spray). Biodynamic gardening uses "companion planting" of nettles to increase the volatile oils in such plants as valerian, mint, sage and rosemary. You will find the potency of many plants increases measurably when planted near nettles.

 

 

this sounds familiar...

I can't find any info on what the nettle does to the soil...but it is normal for plants to secrete chemicals to enhance their survival chances.

Nettles will supply Nitrogen for the Plant and probably some other trace minerals.

Nettles from Evergreen Trees will work Great Also.

Since I started experimenting with IAA, this is my favorite Hormone of choice.

I have seen drastic changes after 3 hours of spraying.

I will do some experimenting with IAA on some seedlings, by feeding via soil.

"This is from my notes:

 
Alfalfa is one of the cheapest and easiest to get products available to us and most do not even know it. It is sold at every pet store in North America and at every feed store also. Alfalfa is the main ingredient in most animal feeds…..horses and rabbits are a couple that come to mind right off. I like to use pure alfalfa for horses. The cost is very cheap compared to the enormous benefits it will give your plants.
Alfalfa contains triaconatol which is a fatty acid growth hormone.I t is especially good for increasing growth rates during vegetative growth It's the "hidden" in the composition of the commercial product "Super Thrive"." -- Godbody

 

 

 

Triacontanol is not water soluble so even though it can be extracted from alfalfa with a suitable solvent, using alfalfa meal as a fertiliser does not get triacontanol to the plants I'm afraid..
