Germplasm Info

Genus: Arabidopsis     Species: thaliana

Seed type: Ecotype

Background: mixed backgrounds

Ploidy: 2(n)

Growth requirement: These accessions spend most of their natural lives at temperatures below 10C. Vernalization is required to promote flowering if they are grown at higher temperatures (i.e. 22-23C). Recommended growth conditions: one week of stratification at 4C to overcome seed dormancy and accomplish optimal germination, followed by 70-160 days of growth at 10C to induce flowering under long day conditions (16h light/8h dark). Alternative growth conditions: one week of stratification at 4C to overcome seed dormancy and accomplish optimal germination, followed by two weeks of growth at 22-23C, 8-10 weeks of vernalization at 4C and 10-40 days at 22-23C to induce flowering under long day conditions (16h light/8h dark).
