Then inoculate the unknown plant hormone into the hole where the seed is using a pipette. Even out media. Let plants grow for a week or two.

To see if it’s GA I would look at stem elongation, fruit growth, and seed germination. To see if it is ABA I would see if plant bud growth was inhibited and observe signs of dormancy. Hypothetically I observe mutant phenotypes to be unusually tall and spindly in
