INFLUENCE OF HEAT-TREATMENT TEMPERATURES DURING STORAGE ON FLOWER FORMATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF 5°-TULIPS
However, flower initiation is generally most rapid at 17–20°C; both higher and lower temperatures retard flower formation. As is shown in table 3, there are some exceptions to this. In cv. 'Apeldoorn', however, the growth period in the glasshouse was shorter when flower formation was accomplished at a lower temperature (13°C).
