The effect of tomato juice and its fractions on the germination of orchid seeds and on seedling growth



The effect of tomato juice and its fractions on the germination of orchid seeds and on seedling growth



Amer. Orchid Soc. Bull 35: 175-82. bibl. 18



Whole tomato juice, reconstituted juice or a mixture of all juice fractions were slightly detrimental to cattleya seedling growth, both with and without added maltose, when compared with Knudson's C medium. The ether, acetone and ethanol fractions added singly produced similar growth to that of the controls, and were slightly superior in their growth-promoting effect to the water extract.
