    I agree. This 'ground layering' sort of method is possibly a way the plants reproduce in nature, explaining the usefulness of all those plantlets.

    Hi Bluemax - I am late to the party here, but nice work! Detailed explanation, photographic detail. Great stuff! Not the "I've totally done that" garbage that gets thrown around here. It's an interesting result too (hormonally speaking). What ppm of GA3 did you use?

    Thanks! I used a 1000 ppm solution, which is what I have usually seen suggested for soaking seed. I don't own a proper lab scale so this is approximate.
