I told my wife about it, and gave her a spray bottle containing 20%
methanol.  She applied it to an ivy vine.  The leaves that were sprayed
grew 2 - 3 times larger than untreated leaves.  Then she stopped, and 
the new leaves returned to the original size.  - IT DOES WORK - I'VE
SEEN IT.  I don't know the business about C3 vs C4 plants tho...
