  Re: [Aroid-l] gGbberellic acid and inflorescence production

Now I think I know why all Zantedeschia plants bought in pots in florist shops with many inflorescences died shortly after blooming.

These pot plants must have been treated with GA3, they had more inflorescences than leaves, just to be a decoration for a few weeks.

They had a lot of flowers, but no tubers, when the overground parts withered there was nothing in the pots except the peat.

Zantedeschias I buy as garden plants with huge tubers behave differently.

They produce one or a few inflorescences during summer and their tubers grow and divide.

Thanks for this info, I haven't known this
