Low-temperature stratification strategies and growth regulators for rapid induction of Paris polyphylla var. yunnanensis seed germination

Abstract

The seeds of Paris polyphylla var. yunnanensis are deeply dormant, and they remain dormant for 18 months or longer in their natural environment. Periodic exposure of the seeds to a low-temperature of 4 °C broke the dormancy in about 16 weeks (112 days). The most effective temperature stratification scheme was an interval of 14 days at 4 °C and 14 days at 22… (More)
