  Re: [Aroid-l] gGbberellic acid and inflorescence production
From: Marc Gibernau <gibernau at cict.fr> on 2009.07.30 at 08:27:56(19597)
Dear Steve,

Yes gibberellic acid has been "intensively" usedto induce the production of an inflorescence with aroid. See all the workof henny and collaborators.
I wanted to try but never have time, so please keep me informed.
Here is the list of some papers by Henny:

Henny, R. J. 1980. Gibberellicacid (GA3) induces flowering in Dieffenbachia maculata'Perfection'. HortScience 15(5): 613. species.
Henny, R. J. 1981. Promotionof flowering in Spathiphyllum 'Mauna Loa' with Gibberellic Acid. HortScience 16(4): 554-555.
Henny, R. J. 1983. Stimulation of flowering in Aglaonema withgibberellic acid (GA3). Aroideana 6(3): 71-72.
Henny, R. J. 1983. Flowering of Aglaonema commutatum 'Treubii'following treatment with gibberellic acid. HortScience 18(3): 374.
Henny, R. J. and W. C. Fooshee. 1983. Flowering of Aglaonema withgibberellic acid (GA3). A follow-up report. Aroideana 6: 135-136.
Henny, R. J. and R. L. Hamilton. 1992. Flowering of Anthuriumfollowing treatment with gibberellic acid. HortScience 27(12): 1328.
Henny, R. J. 1999. Gibberellic acid-induced flowering of Syngoniumpodophyllum Schott 'White Butterfly'. HortScience 34(4):676-677.
