  1. zDifferent letters denote a statistically significant difference (p ≤ 0.05).
  2. The final length (cm) of the longest runner and the first and second petiole formed after the movement of plants from LD (18 h) to indicated daylength treatments. The number of nodes per longest runner and the number of crown branches per plant were counted 10 weeks after the beginning of the daylength treatments. Values are averages of ten plants ± SE.
