Solutions of several growth substances at 30-50 mg/l were applied after flowering to containers of P. somniferum seed. Benzyladenine, IAA and GA increased hypocotyl size whereas 6-methyl uracil and benzimidazole inhibited growth, compared with the control. Seed treated with CCC failed to germinate.
