Influence of root restriction and ethylene exposure on apicaldominance of petunia (Petunia xhybrida Hort. Vilm.-Andr.)


Reducing rooting volume restricted root growth during theproduction of Petunia x hybrida'Orchid’ and resulted in an unfavorable increase in apicaldominance. Exposing young petunia seedlings to ethylene counteracted theeffects of root restriction. Rooting volumes of 9, 28, 58, or 160mL restricted the development of lateral shoots, therebyincreasing apical… (More)
