Alfalfa meal and chloroform extracts of the meal have increased the growth and yield of several plant species. A crystalline substance isolated from the active fraction of alfalfa meal increased the dry weight and water uptake of rice seedlings when sprayed on the foliage or applied in nutrient culture. The substance was identified as triacontanol by mass spectrometry. Sprays containing this compound also increased the growth of corn, and barley grown in soil. Authentic triacontanol produced a similar response over a wide range of concentrations on rice grown in nutrient cultures and tomatoes grown in soil.
So lets get started, at day 4 of flower the plant has confirmed it is 'go time' and vigorous growth is beginning. Enter secret weapon #4, liquid Triacontanol from Happy Bacteria, TCN.

Lets see what happens
Here is a list of what I should expect:
- Increase plant or crop yield.
- Enhance photosynthesis and plant metabolism.
- Induce the production of flower buds and flowering.
- Allow the production of bigger leaves, and bigger root system.
- Increase cell growth in roots, and used to produce thicker foliage and flowers.
- Production of robust plants more resistant to disease and pathogens.
- Increase basal branching of rosette plants, and allow more basal breaks.
- Improve establishment and growth of young plants produced from cuttings, seed or plugs.
- Used to help plants suffering nutrient and growth deficiencies.
