Dear TAXACOM subscribers:

A colleague asked me to post this for him.  Please reply off-list, and only
to Dr. Kiss.

Thank you.

>I would like to grow plants of Nictoiana sylvestris to flower in order to
>obtain a seed supply.  I already have a limited number of seeds.
>1. I know it is a long-day plant, but under greenhouse conditions,
>what is the minimum light period needed?  What is the suggested
>photoperiod to induce flowering?
>2. Can it grow well and flower under conituous illumination?
>Thank you in advance.
