Abstract

Leaf-spray treatment of poinsettias with the growth retardant N-dimethylamino-succinamic acid (B995) decreased plant height without injury or increased production time, but did not result in foliage density and bract size comparable with plants treated with CCC. Both CCC and B995 were more effective in shortening plants than variable temperature-forcing treatments.
