        The cytokinens and auxins are present in all plants in some form
and concentration. They're usually in much much lower concentrations
naturally but still do the same things that they do in tissue culture
(promote shoot/root formation, induction of flowering, etc.). So, the
hormone levels will drop, but never disappear.
