Two long days induced some flowering and 4 or more long days caused 100% flowering in Silene armeria. On long days microscopically detectable flower primordia were first seen after 6 days, which is at least 1 day before the start of stem elongation. Both gibberellin A(3) and A(7) caused flowering on short days, but the results were variable and flowering was never 100%. Three different gibberellins were detected in Silene extracts. The pattern of gibberellins extracted from plants on short and… CONTINUE READING
