Summary Starch and ethanol-soluble sugar components were determined in the shoot tip and in the achlorophyllous — and chlorophyllous part of the subtending leaves during the ontogeny of the pineapple plant. The changes observed were correlated with rooting process in the propagule, vegetative growth of the plant and the change to the reproductive state inflorescence formation, induced by natural environmental conditions. The carbohydrate distribution pattern in the chlorophyllous leaf part was… CONTINUE READING
