Abstract

We examined the effects of exogenous ethylene on rhizome transition to storage organ in lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) by using seed-derived plants. The rhizomes elongated in long days and enlarged in short days with ethephon treatments as well as those in the control. It is suggested that ethylene is not involved in rhizome swelling in lotus plants.
