Chemical induction of axillary bud development in Ficus elastica robusta


, : Chemical induction of axillary bud development in Ficus elastica robusta. Acta Horticulturae (79): 133-138

Single-stemmed stock plants of F. elastica robusta were sprayed with Atrinal (dikegulac) and the morphactins flurenol (10, 100 and 1000 p.p.m.) and chlorflurenol (1, 10 and 100 p.p.m.) Leaf-bud cuttings were harvested 28 days after treatment and rooted with a bottom heat of 30 deg C. Rooting, early bud development and subsequent leaf production were assessed.
