The final culture stage prior to acclimation of plantlets requires the induction of a root system. Optimum survival of plantlets depends on a good root to shoot ratio (Sommer and Caldas, 1981). Whilst root induction is usually controlled by hormonal treatments there is considerable evidence that other factor, including carbohydrate supply (e.g. Thorpe and Patel, 1984) auxin (Hartmann and Kester, 1975) and ethylene, are important in determining ultimate success. Since adventitious root formation involves dedifferentiation, cell division and cell enlargement, as well as differentiation, there is a basic need to investigate the temporal control of such aspect of metabolism.
