Final update, for myself or anyone else thinking about using florel. Jury is still out, but after speaking to a friend in the Agri chemical business, he confirmed that basic idea, a similar chemical is used in the cotton industry to produce bigger yields, although it's used a bit differently commercially. I added one teaspoon/gallon of water, which I adjusted the pH of with a half shot of vinegar to get to around 4.5-5 with very alkaline water. Of the plants, I had multiple aborts ( during an incredibly hot spell) two look great, one looks weird and one went down around day 20, with a weird shape. So best case 50/50 it caused damage. Hard to say if it'll help, since I think the best results would be had with a longer grow period, which I don't think I'll have with my late pollinations. Anyway, mostly happy with the season so far, I knowingly took some risks here, we'll see how it turns out
