Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:
Commercial Easter lily forcers frequently have finished plants that are too tall. Shorter plants can be obtained by forcing at lower than the usual night temperature of 60°F. However, such plants—forced at low temperature—need a long forcing period and bloom in June rather than during the Easter season.
