Inhibition of carnation petal inrolling by growth retardants and cytokinins

Taverner, E; Letham, D Stuart; Wang, Jun; Cornish, Elisa E


Excised carnation petals induced to senescence by ethrel (an ethylene-releasing compound) exhibited morphological changes that closely resembled those of senescing petals in situ in cut flowers. The sensitivity of the excised petals to ethylene was reduced by exogenous cytokinin and this type of hormonal interaction in the control of plant development is discussed. Using the excised petals, a number of known and potential growth inhibitors were compared for ability to prevent petal inrolling...[Show more]
