Tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa L. cv. Double) corms at the vegetative, early floral initiation, and flower bud differentiation stages were assayed for free indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), esterified IAA, and peptidyl IAA. The corms in the vegetative stage contained higher free IAA than those from the early floral initiation stage. Free IAA in corm tissues increased 2.7-fold at flower bud differentiation as compared to the vegetative stage. In the vegetative corms, a marked promotion of leaf...[Show more]
