6-Benzylaminopurine Plant Growth Regulator Hormone Cytokinin 6-BAP

6-Benzylaminopurine is a broad- spectrum plant growth regulator. It can accelerate growth of cell. When used with gibberellins, fruit’s shape can be improved. 6-Benzylaminopurine stimulates the following effects: cell division; lateral bud emergence (apples, oranges); basal shoot formation (roses, orchids); flowering (cyclamen, cacti); fruit set (grapes, oranges, melons).

FOR Cytokinin 6-BA 99%, HOW TO MAKE 6-BA dissolve in water BEFORE USING ?

Because 6-BA is steady in aqueous acid and alkaline solutions, we recommend to make 6-Benzylaminopurine dissolve by citric acid or sodium hydroxide, 6-BA is also soluble in Ethanol, Methanol, Potassium Hydroxide and Sodium Hydroxide.  


NOTE: Sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide will drive the pH up, so it must be adjusted as needed when used in a hydroponic solution.
