Boron leaches at high (pH & temperature) & precipitates at low pH & low temperature, it also precipitates when soil dries out.
Boron is a co-catalyst to (Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium & Sodium), as well as Gibberellins, Auxins, Cytokinins, Abscisic acid, Ethylene.
It is just as easy to accidentally have an Abscisic acid reaction as an Auxin reaction if treatment is in the wrong place, at the wrong time, at the wrong pH, or wrong quality, especially if during water stress.
If an Auxin effect is desired it must be mixed with acids which maximum Calcium water solubility at low pH & sprayed on the apical meristem (2 to 8 ) weeks before desired Auxin reaction.
If Gibberellins effects, needs to be sprayed on nodes at Borax natural pH state (2 to 3) weeks before blooming.
If a Ethylene reaction, then pre-glycerinated & sprayed on lateral phloem meristem of branches, fruit spurs & fruit 3 weeks before harvest.
Spraying on leaves during hot dry or water stress times triggers Abscisic acid!!!!
