The optimization of photomixotrophic conditions (increase of both light intensity and the CO2 atmosphere inside the culture flask) improves plant quality and can lead to greater efficiency during the acclimatization phase. For this case, temporary immersion bioreactors (TIBs) installed in controlled environment characterized by CO2 enrichment, higher luminosity, and sucrose-reduced medium might be considered as priming treatments, support on the TIB plasticity as an integrative tool for a high-scale micropropagation. Examples in berries as commercial blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum), raspberries (Rubus ideaus) and a forest plant (dendroenergetic poplars - Populus spp.) should be presented related to an increase in the efficiency of plants' survival and their adaptability to field conditions.
