The anatomy of the formation of root shoots in cauliflower. The root shoots of the cabbage family in the works of S. G. Rumyantsev

Subtrop Kul Tury 1: 102-104

When cauliflower is grown under certain conditions, a large number of shoots form on its roots. These can be used for the vegetative propagation of the cauliflower when it is grown commercially. Adventitious buds, formed on the roots, live for a 2d vegetation period, replacing the dying lateral root as a result of the division of the phellogen and phelloderm. In the callus at the base of the dying roots adventitious feeding rootlets form. The initial stages of development of the adventitious bud and root are similar, which indicates that the meristem is not predetermined in its development; the ecological conditions are important: under increased moisture roots form, under increased dryness buds form. The laying of the foundations of the meristem in the roots of cauliflower is associated with the dying off of lateral roots and with the cutting of the head during its flowering period. The abundance of storage tissues in the roots and the removal of the part of the plant using them[long dash]the head[long dash]creates favorable conditions for the development of the adventitious buds on the roots into shoots.
