Chimeral Nature of the Pinwheel Flowering African Violets (Saintpaulia, Gesneriaceae) Academic Article uri icon


  • Pinwheel flowering plants were regenerated through short-term culture of whole inflorescences, suggesting that the African violet inflorescence may possess axillary vegetative meristems. Results support the contention that adventitious shoots may arise from the epidermal layer only, or with the participation of the epidermal and subjacent layers. -from Authors
