Manipulate temperature to affect plant growth.

Definition

Manipulation should include

  • establishing optimum and tolerable air temperature ranges
  • calculating average daily temperature
  • researching temperature recommendations
  • regulating substrate temperature
  • stratifying seeds
  • chilling bulbs
  • explaining how to control stem elongation through DIF and DIP.

Process/Skill Questions

  • When must a grower regulate the temperature of growing plants?
  • Why would a grower manipulate soil temperature?
  • How is temperature manipulated?
  • How do DIF and DIP affect plant growth?
