    Keiki Pro

    Hi All--

    I wonder if anyone has any experience with this product? Its purpose, for those that do not know, is to encourage plant growth from buds along the spike of an orchid-- essentially to reproduce a clone of an orchid. You may want to do this if your current orchid is damaged somehow and will not live much longer, or to simply increase the number of phals you may like. This is the case for me. I have a few that I LOVE and would like more to both keep and share with my friends.

    Anyway, I'm about to place an order. This stuff isn't what I would call cheap-- but a little goes a long way! So if you are interested, let me know. Here is the link:

    I plan on making a purchase within days so if anyone is interested, let me know.

    I know that it is used also to produce suckers in African Violets. It is particularly useful if one wants to duplicate a chimera, for example. I haven't used it myself, however.

    I believe the Keiki inducing substance is Bap(6-benzylaminopurine) A cytokinin in lanoline. I have seen directions on how to make it, if you use it enough that you need to economize. It may be on this site,I can't remember, for sure. http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/hometissueculture/
