Abstract

A laboratory chamber was constructed for rooting investigations and for small-scale propagation of plants. Features of the rooting chamber include: small size (it is designed for a laboratory bench); a plastic-covered inclosure; an intermittent mist system; incandescent illumination; a running-water-bath filter for absorbing infrared radiation emitted by the lamps; daylength control; air-temperature control; and rooting-medium temperature control. Venturi-type atomizers draw distilled water from a reservoir to which nutrients, growth substances, vitamins, antibiotics, etc., can be added. The equipment was used successfully to root softwood cuttings of shrub live oak (Quer cus turbinella Greene).
