I've been reading  discussion on the net of the use of the plant steroid Brassinolide on mangoes. I'm not an advocate for the extensive use of nitrogen or plant steroids. I am curious if anyone's observed a benefit such as lengthing the internode's to increase air flow for fungal issues with some of the dwarf mango varieties. Such as Amrapali and Julie.

Hello bovine421,


Brassinolide enhances cold stress tolerance of fruit by regulating plasma membrane proteins and lipids with 10 μM brassinolide (BL) showed a higher tolerance to cold temperature of 5 C.

These hormones control the division, elongation and differentiation of various cell types throughout the entire plant life cycle.

Okay so it is more for Stress Management and crop yields than growth?

Gerrberaric Acid does increase internode on mango. I used it on my seedlings and the internodes between leaves are very long.  The stems are quite thin from stretching.

Thanks for sharing this. It sounds like it would make the tree structurally weak. :)
I modified the question on subject matter because of your response
