    Cheers mate
    Yes, the short cut flower spike seen on the pic is where I applied the hormone. I applied it IMMEDIATELY AFTER cutting the spike! I literally had the scissors in one hand and the hormone in the other. A quick snip and a drop...thats all I did. A few weeks later, I noticed little "nubs" growing on the bottom. I thought they were spikes, but we now know otherwise.
