A high rate of ethylene production was observed in buds and young flowers of Aranda orchid, which increased with bud growth, reaching a high value in half-opened flower. This was followed by a gradual decline but it increased again when the flowers showed sign of senescence. Aminooxylacetic acid (AOA) inhibited ethylene production and bud expansion of… (More)
