Encapsulated 2-chloroethyl-trimethylammonium chloride (chlormequat) stimulated and retarded growth of tomatoes, petunias, snapdragons, and mar-igolds. Low rates (3-6 g of 1, 2 oi 4% active ingredients/liter of growing medium) stimulated earlier bloom up to 14 days in these crops and doubled stem diameter in tomato. Conversely, higher levels of encapsulated chlormequat (12-25 g/liter) retarded plant height to 50% of controls and produced stocky more symmetrical bedding plants without deleterious effects.
