Epiphyllum oxypetalum leaves with and without Triplantanol feed
Science of how Triplantanol works when you feed your plants.
Information is supplied to help customers understand better how our products work and why they work.
We are a science based company with many years experience of growing plants from laboratories, research departments, commercial nurseries to the garden environment.
Our emphasis is on improving plants and how they grow for our customers. We are not a chemical company that cannot wait for plants to grow. We are growers at heart and in our soul.
Feeding plants is a science and growing plants is an art.
Over 15 years ago we found that the chemical triacontanol works in-vitro for the cloning of plants in our laboratory propagation work. This is the main reason why we have spent many years developing a fertilizer for use both indoors and outdoors on a range of plants from ornamentals to vegetables to trees and shrubs.
Triplantanol contains a wide range of chemical additives. Its main ingredient is made from alfalfa but it is much more than that. It is combination of a larger range of other products such as fertilisers, vitamins, amino acids, sugars, plant growth regulators and stimulants.The complete list of ingredients is a commercial secret.
This complex mixture is key to why Triplantanol boosts the growth of plants so well. Many years of trials have come up with the best combination for growth. Our trials are on going and we have recently introduced Triplantanol Orchid for these specialist plants. I have grown orchids since 1976 (34 years) and before that in my youth
For organic enthusiasts Triplantanol Organic is ideal as it is 100% organic and made from certified products.

SHS Acta Horticulturae 379: International Symposium on Quality of Fruit and Vegetables: Influence of Pre- and Post- Harvest Factors and Technology EFFECT OF A LONG CHAIN ALIPHATIC ALCOHOL (TRIACONTANOL) ON GROWTH AND YIELD OF DIFFERENT HORTICULTURAL CROPS Authors: C. Kapitsimadi, S.A. Vioryl Abstract: The influence of triacontanol on growth and yield was studied in tomato, sweet pepper, sugar beet, cotton, tobacco and potato plants. Three foliar sprays of triacontanol were applied to all the crops, starting at the early stages of plant growth. In tomato and sweet pepper, plant height and leaf number were higher in the treated plants than the control ones. The mean cumulative yield per treated plant was significantly higher than the control ones. In sugar beet plants treated with triacontanol, the leaf number and the mean root weight were significantly bigger than the control ones. In tobacco plants the mean leaf number per plant was 11% bigger for treated plants than the control ones, whereas the mean leaf dry weight was 24% more than the control plants. In potato and cotton plants the yield per plant was significantly higher for the treated plants.
Keng Wah flowers (Epiphyllum oxypetalum) open for a single night of fragrance. We have found that this exotic succulent responds particularly well to Triplantanol feeding. It can readily achieve 6-8 feet growing in a large pot, in a conservatory, in the UK and flowers many times a year
