Triplantanol fed Cannas grow with huge leaves and flower well as they are gross feeders.

Bigger plants


Application of Triplantanol can boost the growth and size of plants. This can be seen in leaves, shoots and also roots. See below for information on PGR's in 2014

It can be used to increase plant size in a wide range of plant types from foliage to flowering plants. Can be used on indoor or outdoor plants.

Can be used on shrubs, trees, orchards and amenity planting areas.

  • Wide application around the world from temperate to subtropical to tropical climates.....wherever plants will grow.

  • Universal application because Triplantanol relies on the natural processes of plant growth by boosting nutrition and the uptake of plant fertilisers.

  • Contains the product triacontanol a plant growth regulator that is know to increase plant cell growth by up to 60%. Though some people believe growth is much more.

  • Increased cell growth by expansion can be seen in thicker and larger leaves. In some plants it will lead to larger rounder leaves.  See page Bigger Leaves

The chemical effect of triacontanol, one of the ingredients in Triplantanol is well documented in the literature. Large leaf growth occurs with cell expansion. We have also noticed many plants respond by producing thicker leaves.  This response may be due to the three dimensional expansion of leaf cells or possibly increased cell numbers.  The exact cellular mechanism is yet to be determined.


It is well known that thicker leaves can contribute to better resistance to sucking insects and fungal infections. Indeed there are a number of other chemical products in the market place specifically designed to achieve this.  

We encourage anyone who is using Triplantanol powder to look for such changes in leaf development.

The 21st Century growers...in 2014.
The growth of bigger and better plants is our prime goal. For some growers it is all about the leaves and flowers.
The careful use of plant growth regulators can achieve remarkable results. It is well known that many commercial nurseries and growers rely on Plant Growth Regulator (PGR) technologies. Dwarfing agents have been used extensively and their effect are easy to see on many flower crops.
What is less well known about is the widespread commercial application of the new generation PGR to boost growth, yield and profits in horticulture and agriculture.
The careful regulation of plant growth by improved growing environments and combining fertiliser with regulators can achieve remarkable results.

However we would urge a degree of caution and steady progression, because it is very easy to overdo the growth boosting. Each plant type should be assessed according to conditions. Careful monitoring as a grower will readily show the effects of treatments and if there is a need to continue or ease off. Better plants may often only be achieved by this careful watching and regulation. It will come as second nature to any good grower.
