Weight-Change Patterns in Cut and Intact Rose Shoots II. Floral and Foliar Contributions as Related to Competition for Water.


Foliar contributions to diurnal light/dark changes in total shoot weight were assessed, with the aid of non-destructive beta-ray gauging (see Part I, De Stigter 1982), in two cultivars of intact or cut roses, the cut ones in water or in glucose + Al(3+). Once the flower buds of the intact, single-stem plants had fully opened, weight changes in both… (More)
