Abstract

Stockplants of Triplochiton scleroxylon were grown in controlled-environment cabinets at the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, Edinburgh, to test the effects of stockplant llumination on the rooting ability of leafy stem cuttings. The environmental variables were: (1) irradiance (PAR=106, 202 and 246 µmol m−2 s−1) with a uniform light quality (red: far red ratio= 1.75); (2) light quality (R: FR=1.6 and 6.3) with a uniform irradiance ...
