Please explore different ways to use Triacontanol. 


The chemical Triacontanol, is used in commercial horticulture to improve plant growth worldwide. As a photosynthesis enhancer it increases plant growth in combination with a number of other plant growth regulating actions.

Classified as a plant growth regulator it can have a number of commercially important effects on how plants grow.

Triacontanol can affect growth by its effect on photosynthesis, plant metabolism, and can increase the growth of roots, shoots and flower production.

Can be used safely on fruit, vegetables, and leaf crops.

Products are safe to eat, crop and harvest after plant treatments at recommended concentrations.
Natural organic product. Breaks down naturally as plants grow

This plant growth regulator can be found naturally in a range of plants. Found in alfalfa sugar cane and tea leaves.

Used on a wide range of food crops worldwide in fields and glasshouses to grow tomatoes, cucumbers and melons.

Widespread use in horticulture in Europe, USA, Canada, Africa, Asia, Australia and South America.


Science and horticulture use Triacontanol for the following benefits in a range of plants. Now also available for hobbyists and enthusiastic amateurs or anyone who grows plants. It is easy to mix, use and apply to plants growing anywhere.

Plant growth regulator Triacontanol used on plants

  • Increase plant or crop yield.
  • Enhance photosynthesis and plant metabolism.
  • Induce the production of flower buds and flowering.
  • Allow the production of bigger leaves, and bigger root system.
  • Increase cell growth in roots, and used to produce thicker foliage and flowers.
  • Production of robust plants more resistant to disease and pathogens.
  • Increase basal branching of rosette plants, and allow more basal breaks.
  • Improve establishment and growth of young plants produced from cuttings, seed or plugs.
  • Used to help plants suffering nutrient and growth deficiencies.

Plant growth regulator Triacontanol used in-vitro

  • Improve in-vitro shoot production, axillary branching and root growth in micropropagation.
  • Improve aseptic orchid seedling production aerial and root growth.
  • Produce more robust in-vitro seedling plants better adapted to establishment out of flask and reduce losses.

The chemical composition.

1- triacontanol,n- triacontanol

common alternative names: myricyl alcohol, melissyl alcohol, tria-contanol.

C30H62O Molecular Weight: 438.82 Melting point : 80-83oC 90% pure.

White powder, stable in light, air, alkali. For prolonged storage keep at 2-8 degC.

Low toxicity, safe to humans and animals. No phytotoxicity at standard application rates

Not soluble in water.

Dissolve in alcohol, n-butyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, ethyl ether, chloroform, petroleum, polysorbate20 (Tween20). The solution may need heating to improve solubility.

Store in a cool dry dark place. We supply in a leak proof container and we suggest Triacontanol is stored in the dark in a refrigerator at 2-8deg C. Foil cover the tube if necessary to eliminate light. We suggest using triacontanol solution soon after mixing and preferably use within a few days.

Mixing the chemical Triacontanol to use.

Information on concentrations is available under section SOIL, HYDROPONICS, IN-VITRO and HOBBYIST as above. Please explore these links.

As a dilution example: How to make a 25ppm Triacontanol solution for spraying foliage.

25ppm is equivalent to 25mg/1000ml (1.0litre).

Weigh 25mg triacontanol powder.( A cheap portable battery electronic digital scale is easy to use and widely available on the internet or eBay) * see section below if wanting to estimate!

Dissolve powder in a small volume of alcohol. 5-10ml. Alcohol solvents listed above. The solution may need slight heating to improve solubility. Take care with flammable liquids! Alternatively dissolve in 1-2ml of Polysorbate20. Polysorbate solutions do not require heating. Using a pyrex test tube makes this very easy.

Measure 1000ml (1.0litre) of good quality water and to this add the freshly mixed solution. Shake or stir.

For triacontanol diluted with alcohols, add a foliage wetter such as Physan 20, Add 1-5 drops. If this wetter is not available use liquid hand dish washing soap at 1-5 drops. There is no need to add a foliage wetter if you have used Polysorbate20

Use an inexpensive hand sprayer to spray your plants with. It is best to shake before each spraying. Aim for coating the upper surface of the plant leaves thoroughly, Spay enough to allow drip down from the leaves. Spray stems and shoots also. Do not spray during bright sunshine. Aim to spray at the beginning of the day, when plants are starting to grow. Do not allow leaves to remain wet overnight.

Store this spray solution in the refrigerator or cool and aim to spray and use. If the solution is cold, remember to bring the solution temperature up to that of the foliage before spraying to stop cold damage to leaves.

* If you have no scales and want to estimate. We supply tubes of 2.0gms(2000mg) of Triacontanol. Simply divide the powder into x20 piles of 100mg, Then subdivide a 100mg into x4. This will give you approximately 25mg. For foliage spraying there is some degree of flexibility on concentrations from 1-25ppm.

Internet information on Triacontanol.

Information on applications as foliar, soil drench or in-vitro is available on the www. Research papers have a high focus on treating plants with foliage sprays of triacontanol. This reflects the high cost of the research grade chemicals which can be x10 the price of triacontanol sold by Triplantanol. Researchers cannot afford to wash expensive grade triacontanol into and out of pots in high volume research projects!

Use on plants growing in soil, compost or non-soil mixes.

Triacontanol can be used as a foliage spray or as a liquid additive to fertilisers
