Definition of growth regulator

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by htop:

Used by nurseries to change the growth habit of a plant, it is a commercial chemical. It is not generally available to the general public. It is usually used to dwarf a plant or to make the stems shorter. The plant eventually will grow out of the dwarf habit, especially if cuttings are taken. Examples include Kalanchoe and Hibiscus, which are dwarfed, then forced to bloom.
