Progress in the promotion of flowering in lilies by supplementary illumination

Acta Horticulturae (51): 261-262a

Progress in the promotion of flowering in lilies by supplementary illumination

The conventional forcing period for Lilium speciosum cvs in a glasshouse is from 150 to 160 days. This period was shortened by 24 days in the winter by long-day treatment with incandescent light. Flower production of the Enchantment in the winter is risky owing to insufficient sunlight.

Glasshouse chrysanthemums were subjected to long-day treatment to differentiate flower buds. This was followed by short-day treatment for 12 or 15 days and then by a second period of long days. This second period of illumination increased the numb...
