shoppers to avoid them. As curling is not seen during culture in open air, the presence of ethylene, which is known to cause leaf curling ( Crocker et al., 1932 ; Crocker, 1948 ; Kang, 1979 ; Palmer, 1985 ), is suspected of causing epinasty, in which

Ethylene (C 2 H 4 ) is a gaseous hormone that is produced by plants during growth and development and in response to environmental stress ( Abeles et al., 1992 ). At the seedling stage, ethylene causes reduced hypocotyl elongation, increased
