among plant species has been attributed to the presence of growth inhibitors ( Barlow et al., 1961 ; Ooyama, 1962 ), a lack of or imbalance of hormones or rooting cofactors ( Hess, 1961 ; Raviv et al., 1986 ), and the presence of physical barriers

. When plants were rewatered after drought stress, ABA levels dropped and iPA content increased to prestress levels. As discussed previously, ABA is considered a growth inhibitor whereas cytokinins act as growth promoters. Therefore, the decline in ABA
