Effect of benzyladenine on the abundance and quality of the leaf yield in the calla lily (Zantedeschia Spreng.)
Summary.

The soaking of rhizomes, 15-18 cm in circumference in the cultivars ‘Black Magic’ and ‘Mango’ and 20+ cm in cultivar ‘Albomaculata’, with leaf buds 0.5-2 cm in length, in solutions of benzyladenine at concentrations of 100, 350 and 600 mg·dm-3 lasted 30 and 60 min. After this practice, lightly dried rhizomes were planted into 20-cm pots. BA at concentrations of 100-600 mg·dm-3 reduces the yield of leaves in cultivar ‘Mango’, and at concentrations of 350-600 mg·dm-3 – in cultivar ‘Albomaculata’. Leaves growing from rhizomes soaked in BA at concentrations of 100-600 mg·dm-3 have a higher greenness index and a higher protein and sugar content.
