Abstract

Light affects several aspects of micropropagation. Five cultivars of gerbera were subjected to photoperiodic regimes of 10, 12 and 16-h of light for the shoot multiplication. The reduction of photoperiod from 16-h to 12-h resulted in increases in 41.8% to 97.2% of shoot multiplication in all gerbera cultivars.
