Does anyone know anythig about the use of dwarfing chemicals to prevent plants from becoming leggy? (ie reducing internode length) I recently acquired a carnation in full bloom about 2" high and on potting it on it is now in full bloom again at a more natural height of 8". If this method were successful would this be unethical for show alpines?
