In his book, Seed Germination Theory and Practice, Norman Deno describes this very easy method for using GA3.

A 2.5" square of paper towel is folded 3 times to give a pad .5" x 1". This is moistened with water and the seeds are placed on top. Over the seeds is sprinkled the amount of GA3 that can be balanced on the narrow end of a flat toothpick. The pad is then placed in a plastic baggie. After 24 hours the seeds can be sown in the normal fashion. This technique gives a concentration of 1000 ppm.

For a fuller explanation of GA3, see BotanyCa by Gabriela Costea, ORG&HPS member. She describes how she has used GA3 from our current stock.

Robert Welsh contributed this idea:

"My technique to apply GA3; place the seeds in folded paper towel, sprinkle the GA3 on top of the towel and spray with water. After a while (1-2 hrs) open the towel and plant the seeds."

Gardenfundamentals by Robert Pavlis also provides useful tips.

We highly recommend this video about GA3 produced by Robert Pavlis for an ORG&HPS meeting and now posted on his You Tube channel.
