The objective of this study was to determine the effect of light quality on the growth, physiology, and antioxidant enzyme activity of two important domestic carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus) cultivars: ‘Green Beauty’ and ‘Purple Beauty’. In vitro-grown shoot tip explants were cultured on the plant growth regulator (PGR)-free Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium under a conventional cool white fluorescent lamp (control), blue light-emitting diode (LED), or red LED. Growth traits, photosynthetic and… CONTINUE READING
