TRANSPORT OF ROOT-FORMING HORMONE IN WOODY CUTTINGS

The hypothesis that a strong solution of hetero-auxin, when applied to the base of a cutting, causes the rapid-downward movement of a substance, rhizocaline, which occurs in the leaves and stem, and which is necessary for root formation, is offered as an explanation of the facts stated in 4, 5, and 6

  • The hypothesis that a strong solution of hetero-auxin, when applied to the base of a cutting, causes the rapid-downward movement of a substance, rhizocaline, which occurs in the leaves and stem, and which is necessary for root formation, is offered as an explanation of the facts stated in 4, 5, and 6
  • The effectiveness of treating the base of cuttings of lemon or rose with strong solutions of hetero-auxin to induce root formation suggests a new line of attack in efforts to root cuttings of apple and other woody plants -which do not root readily from- cuttings
  • W. WENT for helpful suggestions and guidance during the course of the experiments and during the preparation of the manuscript
