Predicting bulb size and maturity in Lilium longiflorum Thunb. cultivars

, : Predicting bulb size and maturity in Lilium longiflorum Thunb. cultivars. Acta Horticulturae (47): 339-345

Progressive increases in the daughter bulb weight provided an accurate estimate of growth rate, and together with duration of the period of constant growth, they determined bulb size potential. The time of floral initiation in the mother axis provided an accurate estimate of growth period potential. Large bulb yields generally were associated with near or above-normal spring temperatures which increased the rate and duration of constant growth.
