The effects of intermittent mist on cuttings

Acta Horticulturae (79): 49-56

The effects of intermittent mist on cuttings

A review and discussion, with some reference to temperate fruit and ornamental plants. The influence of intermittent mist propagation can now be attributed to at least four conditions, namely, (1) reduction of transpiration and respiration, (2) leaching of nutrients and other metabolites including growth regulating substances, and use of nutrient mist to replenish leached nutrients, (3) leaching of root inhibitors, and (4) induction of root promoting substances by mist.

Terminal 15 cm long cuttings were taken from 8-week-old I. banduca shoots. They were treated by the quick dip method with IAA, IBA or NAA, each at 1000 - 4000 p.p.m. Rooting was assessed 30 days after growing under mist. IBA at 2000 p.p.m. gave th...
