Getting your hands on the plants will actually work well. Gently
stroking the stem for a few seconds a day will shorten the internode.
Internode length responds markedly to the temperature right after sunrise
(colder => shorter).

There are quite a few commercial products used by the bedding plant
industry--these have been mentioned by other posters. Note that B-Nine
is the same stuff as Alar (daminozide)--you may have trouble getting hold
So why do you want to shorten the internodes, and on what plant? Your
answers to those questions may lead to some revised answers.
