In most cases, Chlormequat Chloride is used in greenhouses to restrain the growth and development of floriculture crops. However, on rare occasion it can be used to create shorter, bushier medicinal plants that are more suitable for indoor growing.
Because the chemical is absorbed by the roots and leaves, it is more effective when it is applied as a liner dip, substrate drench, sprench, or foliar spray.
Spray application of Chlormequat Chloride has been shown to be more effective when applied on cloudier days, early morning, or any other slow-drying weather conditions. After application, gardeners normally refrain from watering for a minimum of six hours.
Botanists have found that mixing Chlormequat Chloride with Daminozide is more effective than using each of the products on their own. This chemical is often used on woody flowering crops, herbaceous crops, bedding plants, hibiscus, azaleas, geraniums, and poinsettias.
When compared to other PGRs, Chlormequat Chloride is quickly metabolized by plants, animals, and soil microbes. Unlike Daminozide, which is listed as a human carcinogenic, Chlormequat Chloride is not listed as a human carcinogen. However, this might just be due to a lack of research or documented studies.
