Now if you spray it when its already flowering, use 75ppm strength. You wont see much stretching but it should keep flowering for you for the next 2-3 months. Now different strains might act differently but I think it unlikely. However, you just wont know until you experiment. Which is what this is all about anyway, in my opinion.
P&S i gotta disagree with everything you say except suggesting people use fulvic acid. Applying ANY amounts of GA3 to cannabis in the bloom phase will drastically increase internodal stretch, which is again, heavily frowned upon for cannabis growers. Also applying "Bloom Fertilizer" which im guessing is characterized by high phosphorous (sometimes potassium) content is also a bad idea during the beginning of bloom as again, high P (and NH4) increases internodal stretch. Cannabis growers hate the stretch (and gibberellins for that matter) so much that paclobutrazol, daminozide, and chlormequat chloride is often used in cannabis cultivation, which i don't agree with being used on consumables.
Also applying free form (not batch chelated to cations) L amino acids has little, to no, to negative effects on growth. a small amount of L-form amino chelated micros (combined with other forms of chelation) can be beneficial and Glycine chelation is useful for foliar application, but all these silly amino acid products are useless.
All sounds like some good advice for growing grapes though... except for the aminos.
Im curious, What PPM of BAP and Triacontanol would you suggest for cannabis if the BAP application would take place once in early bloom, and the TRIA application would be every two weeks from micro-propagation to harvest?

No, poopy, but you can use BAP, other cytokinins, Ethephon and possibly Auxins (stay away from 2,4-D & 2,4,5-T etc.) to induce hermaphroditic flowering (combination of both male & female) on your genetically male cannabis plant. IDK about viable fertility of female flowers, all offspring would be male if plant went to seed, and potency would be less than females of the same phenotype.
