Abstract

Early winter flowering of Alstroemeria ‘Regina’ plants was accomplished by a long-day, high-pressure sodium vapor lamp (HPS) treatment before the low 5°C temperature induction treatment. This HPS treatment predisposed the plants to respond to a subsequent long photoperiod treatment during winter. Winter generative shoot yield was increased by 35% through the use of HPS pretreatment. Stem length increased as the duration of the HPS treatment prior to cold induction increased.
