Similar trend was observed for both quinoa genotypes to attain true leaves
and multiple leaf stages at all N levels (Table 1).
91% during the cotyledonary leaf and first pair of true leaves
stages, respectively (Table 5).
Eleven of the participants were volunteers working for the True Leaves
If the tip of P is at depth two, then V LR(i + 1) contains one more true leaf than V LR(i), otherwise number of true leaves
in V LR(i) and V LR(i + 1) are same.
The early removal treatment had both cotyledons excised before appearance of the first set of true leaves
, while the later removal treatment had both cotyledons excised shortly after development of the first set of leaves.
The first form, the normal leaf, consists of true leaves
that are bipinnate or occasionally tripinnate.
Sprouting seeds do not need much light, at least until they have their true leaves
When the true leaves
become visible, the seedlings may be transplanted into individual containers and grown for five to eight more weeks, or until they are big enough for transplanting into the garden.
All ornamental asparagus types require continuous maintenance due to continuous yellowing and browning as their cladophylls -- we call them leaves although true leaves
on asparagus are not noticed -- age and die.
When seedlings emerge with two true leaves
, begin to fertilize as previously suggested.
Snip off clusters of sprouts right above the soil line when the first set of true leaves
forms; they follow the initial cotyledons (seed leaves).
Between days 4 and 12, students saw a bit more: emergence of the seedlings with two little seedling leaves; stems growing upward; then true leaves
forming; and the crowning moment--flower buds
Thrips damage was simulated by leaf area removal of true leaves
and entailed cutting off the whole leaf at the top of the petiole (100% reduction) or cutting off portions of leaves to simulate different degrees of reduced leaf area.
2Prick out seedlings as first true leaves
begin to appear.
These results support the hypothesis that transplantation before establishment of true leaves
is detrimental to plant growth.
