The effects of different concentrations of IAA exogenously applied to Proteaceae plants of the genus Leucadendron laxum on a variety of rooting medium were studied. The aim of the study was to evaluate the rooting response of tip cuttings of nature-grown shrubs using an intermittent mist propagation system in a shaded tunnel. The IAA treatments included a control, 500, 1000, 2000 and 4000 ppm IAA auxins. The growth mediums tested were: a) bark/polystyrene (1:1); b) peat moss/polystyrene (1:1… CONTINUE READING
