Used by commercial growers for years to improve crop yields, this formula is now available to the general public. MegaGro is great for any type of gardening: flower gardening, vegetable gardening, rose gardening, indoor gardening, you name it. MegaGro is a solution containing gibberellins, a naturally occurring plant growth hormone. The solution is misted onto indoor and outdoor plants for better plant care.

You can start by downloading our Growing Tips at the end of the page. If you do not find a particular species, never fear. MegaGro has been designed as a general all-purpose growth solution that can be used on almost every variety. We are continually updating Growing Tips as we collect more data.

Can I add MegaGro to my watering solution?
MegaGro should be sprayed, not poured onto the plants roots. Spraying delivers MegaGro in a targeted fashion to the growing area of the plant, be it foliage or blossom. It also provides a way to deliver repeated treatments without over-watering.
Can I use MegaGro with fertilizer?
YES! MegaGro will work with or without fertilizers or plant foods, but is best when used with fertilizer. Fertilizers and plant food provide the basic building blocks for a plant to grow and MegaGro gives your plants the added extra ingredient for exceptional growth. We recommend using Algoflash as an excellent all-purpose liquid fertilizer.
Can I use MegaGro with ANY type of plant?
YES! This is the most common question we get. MegaGro will work with ALL plants, from flowers, to fruits and vegetables to trees and shrubs. MegaGro contains a naturally occurring growth booster that ALL plants produce themselves when they grow.

Is MegaGro Organic?
The active ingredients in MegaGro, are naturally occurring growth hormone. All plants produce these growth boosters during key growth periods of their life cycle, sprouting from seed, producing flower buds and producing fruit. The term organic has recently been specifically defined by the FDA and EPA under the NOP Standards Program, largely, in part, to clearly identify consumers foods grown without the use of pesticides. This program prohibits the use of the word organic in any labeling of products, which are not produced in accordance with The National Organic Program Act. Under definitions in the act, a substance is deemed synthetic if the substance is formulated or manufactured by a chemical process or by a process that chemically changes a substance extracted from naturally occurring plant, animal, or mineral sources. But like many of the vitamins we take, the active is ingredient in MegaGro is natural. A good comparison is Vitamin E, derived from soybeans, which also cannot be labeled organic. Thus MegaGro can best be described as manufactured from natural source. Under the NOP Act, organic gardeners can still use MegaGro and label the produce using the Organic or Made With Organic.
What is the Shelf-Life of MegaGro?
The recommended shelf-life for MegaGro is 2 years; however we have found that the solution has proven active up to 5 years. The key variables in the decrease in potency of MegaGro are light and heat. We package in opaque bottles to prevent light degradation and our product is rarely exposed to high temperatures. If stored in a cool, dark place, MegaGro should maintain potency for several years.

What is the concentration of MegaGro?
The spray bottle is a 10 ppm (parts per million) solution. The concentrate is a 800 ppm (0.08%) solution.
Using the MegaGro Concentrate
MegaGro Concentrate is designed to be very easy to use. You can make easy make any concentration you like. Each capful of MegaGro Concentrate added to 32 oz. of water makes a 10 ppm solution. To make a 20 ppm solution, simply add 2 capfuls, 30 ppm 3 capfuls and so on. To make 1 gallon of spray, add 4 capfuls of the MegaGro 8 oz Concentrate (1 oz).
1 capful = .23 oz or 5.9 mL
1 oz. of MegaGro Concentrate contains .5 grams of active ingredient.
MegaGro is great for seed germination. Generally MegaGro will produce a significant increase in germination rates and post-germination growth rates. MegaGro is most effective on species which develop a hard seed coat.
The most prudent way to test MegaGro on your seeds is to use a 50 ppm solution of MegaGro (5 capfuls [1 ounce] of Concentrate in 32oz of water) on a small sample of your seeds. Keep the seeds moist until they germinate. If the species you are working with has a hard seed coat, scarification (knick seed coat with a razor blade) of the seed coat in conjunction with the MegaGro treatment should boost your results. For more detailed information on seed germination, we recommend that you review Seed Germination Theory and Practice by Norman C. Deno or read more at our MegaGro for seed germination page
