    Has anyone given or heard of anyone giving these to a more mature nep? Is it possible auxins would induce flowering?

    Or, has anyone ever tried auxin supressors/inhibitors? Perhaps that would lead to formation of basals...

    Sounds like a plant physiology lab experiment just begging to be performed. But I took that class a long time before I had a Nep, so I haven't done the experiment.

    I totally wouldn't mind doing it. I looked real quick last night tho, and found that 5g of this particular mix of auxin costs $200! I wonder if anyone has some laying around...

    5g of plant hormone might be way more than you would need for an experiment though, is there anywhere to by smaller charges? I'm curious, I'll check around a bit-- Why is tampering with nature so intriguing?

    Yeah 5g would definitely be more than I would need. I could probably get by with a gram or less...though I'm not for sure since I've never done anything like this. The place I had looked was a biochem supply company, so I'm sure thats why 5g was the smallest size they had. I'll also ask around on campus. I work in the herbarium here and the prof that runs it has a lab, and does work with with trees in Borneo, so..hmm...perhaps he has some

    Either way this would be a great way to get fast hybrids, and study Nepenthes genetics.

    Those are standard experiments in labs for plant physiology classes, so the stuff must be available there. Ask the professor you work for to point you to whoever teaches plant physiology. Or find a grad student who has access. Don't pay for the stuff.
