An update: That first blossom dropped today, meaning it stayed "on" for a total of 32 days.

Being totally candid, I honestly don't recall how long they lasted in prior bloomings, but this seems longer, and it's certainly carried more blossoms at a time than before.

An update, plus a response from the manufacturer…

My Sorcerer’s Apprentice is now 10 days into carrying two flowers, which is easily a week longer than I’m used to, and the Lucky Girl, having lost the first blossom, opened another, so is continuing with three...

I shared my observations with the technical director of Kelpak, and he responded:

"That is an excellent result!! I may have told you in the past that we found a large amount of polyamines and phlorotannins in Kelpak and that we believe that these compounds are responsible for some of the effects we see with Kelpak application.

I believe the effect that you are seeing can be attributed to the polyamines. The are known to aid in flower formation, and play a vital role in stress mitigation in plants. They are also known for their anti-senescence effect! Many years ago, there was a publication that showed that the shelf-life of tomatoes and cucumbers were extended by 7 days with the application of Kelpak. Now that we are learning more about polyamines, these observations make more sense.

I’d be happy to provide the material to work with.
