The Kalanchoe plant is a hardy, succulent species that produces a plethora
of small somatic embryoids. The diminutive plantlets may be stimulated to
grow rapidly and produce attractive houseplants. The objectives of the
Grow-off is to encourage you to pursue your botanical knowledge to ascertain
those environmental conditions which promote the growth of plants, i.e.
Kalanchoe. In summary - grow your plantlet the fastest and bestest.
Participants may pick up a plantlet and register in lab. For this endeavor,
the best-in-show, as judged (April 18th) by a panel of Graduate and
Undergraduate assistants, will receive a certificate for lunch-for-two
at Berret's Restaurant. We appreciate your interest and hope this optional
project will also grow your Botanical interest.
