While cleaning up a closet, I found an old dusty bottle of gibberellic acid I
had once purchased for some unknown reason. I mixed some up and sprayed a
couple of plants, including a Heliamphora that had not been growing recently.
The plant seems to have responded with a new spurt of growth. Is it my
imagination or does this stuff actually work? It seems to smell a bit like
alcohol - what is it?
