Fruit Machine Flower Booster, formerly known as Bud Meister Organic from Grow Australia, is one of the best flowering stimulators on the market. By using organic technology to focus the plant into floral production earlier, enhance flowering sites and redirecting vegetative energy into floral mass. Using complex plant derived organic stimulants combined with naturally occurring elements Fruit Machine forces the plant to produce more sites, initiates flowering faster and creates a heavier flower that holds more weight when dry. Grow Australia has manufactured a product that is nearly 100% percent more concentrated than its closest competitor giving you a great value for money flower enhancer. Fruit Machine is to be used in the early stages of flower development as it slows the longitudinal growth of the plant and allows this plant energy to be entirely directed into creating more, larger and denser flowers than that was previously thought possible with organic technology. This give the grower the advantage by increasing both flower size and weight and reducing production time.
Directions for use
Use 1-1.5ml/l in either week 2 or week 3 of flowering phase
Triacontanol (TRIA) is a natural plant growth regulator found in epicuticular waxes. It is used to enhance the crop production in millions of hectares, particularly in Asia. Quite a number of researchers have reported the TRIA-mediated improvement in growth, yield, photosynthesis, protein synthesis, uptake of water and nutrients, nitrogen-fixation, enzymes activities and contents of free amino acids, reducing sugars, soluble protein, and active constituents of essential oil in various crops. Expectedly, TRIA enhances the physiological efficiency of the cells and, thus, exploits the genetic potential of plant to a large extent. In fact, TRIA increased free amino acids, reducing sugars, and soluble protein of rice and maize within 5 min. One of the unfortunate characteristics of triacontanol is that it does not readily dissolve in water. As a result it has, until recently, been a bit of a pain to use. An emulsifying agent needs to be used to get the triacontanol to sit in the water as a suspension before use. Because of this, very few products contain triacontanol, and those that do have had almost ineffective concentrations.
We hear about amino acids all the time, especially regarding health and fitness. Bodybuilders maximize their amino acid intake to build muscle. Long-distance runners require amino acids for hard runs. Vegetarians and vegans seek out specific foods rich in these compounds to supplement a diet short on meat.
But what are amino acids, and why are they important for growing plants?
Every living being uses proteins to stay alive and reproduce. Proteins are giant molecules that literally do everything in a biological cell: they’re needed to replicate DNA, they’re employed as chemical messengers, they act as hormones, and they build structural components like cells walls, tissue, nerve, and even bones. Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins. Biologists call this phenomena the “central dogma of molecular biology”: DNA instructs the cell to recruit amino acids to build proteins. Those proteins then carry out the cell’s functions so it can self-regulate, generate energy and even divide to create new cells. It’s critical to remember that certain plants use only L-amino acids. For those of you who aren’t chemists, L-amino acids have a 3D shape that “turns left.” R-amino acids, due to their structure, cannot be readily used by plants.
Balancing Plant Growth Regulators (PGR) Principles
Starting with the basics, PGR stands for plant growth regulators, sometimes also referred to as plant hormones. Every plant naturally produces very small amounts of hormones in order to control its normal functions such as root growth, height, node and internode growth, flowering, quantity of flowers, fruit and any other developmental growth.
Plant growth regulators are a chemical or mix of chemicals that make a plant change beyond its naturally physiological growth actions, through the cells, organs and tissues. It does this by either slowing down the rate of growth or maturation; speeding up the rate of growth or maturation; or altering the natural behavior of a plant. Note that this does not include any substances which are intended as a plant nutrient, including trace elements, plant inoculants or nutritional chemicals.
The term PGR has come to include many things, and not all of them are harmful. Some of the of major classifications of plant growth regulators are auxins, cytokinins, ethylene generators, gibberellins and growth inhibitors/retardants. Auxins elongate shoots. They are primarily used to increase growth, flower formation and to increase root mass.
Cytokinins stimulates cell division and are primarily used to increase root mass and new bud growth. Ethylene generators ripen fruit and are primarily used to ripen fruit uniformly, giving the plant consistent fruit size and weight.
Gibberellins elongates cells and stimulate cell division and are primarily used to increase fruit and flower size. Finally, grow inhibitors and retardants stop or slow down growth. They are primarily used to increase flower production by shortening the internodes, make more node sites and/or to completely stop the lateral growth of a plant.
PGRs are a great way to control plants. They will, if used in the right mixtures at the correct dosages, considerably improve the desired factors. PGRs can help a plant to produce more flowers and fruits and assist in producing even consistent flowers and fruits. They can help you keep plant height consistent and reduce the time it takes for a plant to produce its flowers and fruits. They can also make a plant less susceptible to fungi, diseases and pests.
PGRs can control plants in order to preserve the balance between the modern world and the natural world. By that I mean they have been used to stop growth in trees growing too high, which otherwise would have to be destroyed in order to prevent them from growing under bridges, telephone cables and in other urban locations damaging or obstructing footings, buildings and foundations.
At the other end of the scale, they can make houseplants stay manageable and become more resilient to stress and disease. PGRs are also used commonly and successfully within the retail flower business. They are used to make the flowers more appealing to the retail consumer by improving consistency in flower size and color.
