ABSTRACT

Before planting the tubers were soaked for 24 hours in water, benzyladenine, or gibberellic acid.
Both growth regulators were applied at three concentrations: 50, 100 and 150
mg·dm-3. The use of benzyladenine accelerated the flowering of the
poppy anemone 'Sylphide' by 3–7 days, and of gibberellic acid – by 11-16 days.
The soaking of its tubers in gibberellic acid at 100 and 150 mg·dm-3 before
planting caused the development of a greater number of flowers. Benzyladenine
caused the formation of flowers with shorter pedicels, and gibberellic acid –
with longer ones. The bigger flowers developed when the tubers had been soaked
in the gibberellic acid at 50 mg·dm-3. The use of benzyladenine and
gibberellic acid reduced the number of leaves formed by the tubers to one-third
or one-fourth. Benzyladenine caused the development of leaves with shorter stalks
and blades, while gibberellic acid caused the formation of leaves with longer
stalks.

Key words: Anemone coronaria, growth, flowering, gibberellic acid, benzyladenine.
