Growth and flowering responses of Lilium longiflorum to bulb and shoot light and temperature treatments






Acta Horticulturae (47): 215-224

Growth and flowering responses of Lilium longiflorum to bulb and shoot light and temperature treatments

Bulbs of Easter lily, cvs Nellie White and Ace, were subjected to various alternating temperature treatments and different daylengths prior to flower induction, and to different temperature treatments during post-emergence forcing. Daily cycles of 1.7 deg /12.8 deg C for 6 weeks resulted in superior plants of both cvs which flowered rapidly with high bud numbers.
