Wild species and hybrids of passion flower are cultivated in many countries for their ornamental value, and used for landscaping as indoor and garden plants. However, knowledge of physiological responses of passion flower to changes in light level is limited. In this paper, the relationship among low (25 %), medium (50 %), and high light level (75 %) and photosynthetic efficiency was investigated on hybrids of Passiflora ‘Aninha’ and Passiflora ‘Priscilla’. Hybrids of P. ‘Aninha’ grown under 25… CONTINUE READING
