Water and carbohydrate relationships during the rooting of cuttings

Acta Horticulturae (79): 161-168
Water and carbohydrate relationships during the rooting of cuttings
Cuttings of a wide range of ornamental shrubs were propagated in the glasshouse at different times of year under various conditions (mist, mist + mesh covering, polyethylene sheeting and different forms of shading). In winter, cuttings propagated under mist were more water-stressed and rooted less well than those under polyethylene. In summer the reverse occurred and when leaf water potentials during the day were less than -10 bars rooting was adversely affected.
