Abstract

In short-day plantChenopodium rubrum the photoperiodic requirement for flowering increases from one short day at the age of four days to two or three short days at the age of five to seven days. The photoperiodic requirement decreases again to one short day between the 10th and 12th day of cultivation. This feature, together with endogenous circadian rhythmicity of flowering, enabled us to test the effects of PGRs under different morphogenetic patterns. Representative PGR effects on flowering are quoted.
