Gibberellic acid and cytokinin affect Phalaenopsis flower morphology at high temperature

, : Gibberellic acid and cytokinin affect Phalaenopsis flower morphology at high temperature. Hortscience. 32(6): 1069-1073

Gibberellin A-3 (GA,: 1, 3, or 5 mu-g/shoot), 6N-benzyladenine (BA: 1, 3, or 5 mu-g/shoot), or both were applied to the flowering shoots of a white hybrid Phalaenopsis orchid (Leda) when they were 2 to 3 cm (stage 1, no flower primordia) long at high temperature (30 degree C day/25 degree C night). When flowering shoots were treated with GA-3 alone, deformed flowers were more frequent with increasing GA-3 concentrations. The occurrence of GA-3-induced deformed flowers was prevented by BA at the same dose as GA-3 when applied 4 days after GA-3 treatment. BA (1, 3, or 5 mu-g/shoot) was also applied 4 days before (time 1) or 4 days after (time 2) GA-3 (1 mu-g/shoot) treatment for regulating plant characteristics. The application of BA at 1 or 5 mu-g/shoot to stage 1 flowering shoots at time 2 resulted in short internodes between florets, whereas BA application at time 1 had no effect. Simultaneously, BA at 1 or 5 mu-g/shoot applied at time 1 or time 2 to stage 2 (5 to 6 cm long, two- to three-flower primordia) flowering shoots also shortened internode length between florets as compared to GA-3 alone. When a stage 1 flowering shoot was given BA (3 or 5, but not 1 mu-g/shoot) and then treated with GA, 4 days later, flower count was slightly reduced as compared to treating with GA-3 alone. However, a high dose of BA applied at time 1 or time 2 on stage 2 flowering shoots had no effect on flower count. Chemical names used: N-(phenylmethyl)-1H-purine-6-amine (benzyladenine (BA)), gibberellic acid (GA-3).

The total extent has expanded from c. 676 000 ha in 1947 to c. 904 000 ha in 2002, but there has also been significant turnover, with losses of ancient woodland and a gain from new planting. Structural change has occurred due, in pa...
