. Although the alstroemeria cultivars available for containerized production are 50% sh orter than fresh cut cultivars, the plant height is still excessive for most markets. Spray treatments of Arest, Cycocel or B-Nine were only moderately effective in controlling plant height while Bonzi was the most effective. 3
The number of days to flower was increased by up to 5 days when Bonzi was applied. Workgroup New Ornamentals
The number of generative shoots was not affected by the growth regulator treatments, Plant height was reduced when plants were grown under 13+ hour photoperiods.

When planted on a monthly basis, plant height showed a cyclic pattern with the tallest plants developing during the spring and summer while the shortest plants developed during the winter. The number of days to flower decreased as photoperiod increased. CONTROLLING SHOOT ELONGATION OF POTTED ALSTROEMERIA
