Does anyone have any suggestions on how to apply auxin in a class lab on
apical dominance (peas)? We use the standard method of mixing the auxin
(ethanol solution) in hot lanolin. How stable is auxin in lanolin? I
worry about loss of hormone in the heated lanolin, and the inability to be
sure a consistent amount has been applied to the stumps. Does it help to
recut the stump after a few days and make a fresh application? Is there
some way to apply the auxin in liquid form?
Any comments would be appreciated.
