The influence of four plant hormones on cormel development in Gladiolus stolon tips grown in vitro was tested. Kinetin induced cormel formation while Gibberellin A 3 inhibited it at low kinetin levels. Abscisic acid did not affect cormel formation, but inhibited their growth. Naphthalene acetic acid had no direct effect on tuberization. Anatomical observations revealed no differences between cormels formed in vitro and in vivo.
