SOUZA, Roseane Rodrigues de et al. Boron doses in the development of calla lily in nutrient solution. Ciênc. agrotec. [online]. 2010, vol.34, n.6, pp.1396-1403. ISSN 1413-7054.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-70542010000600006.

Boron has essential functions in plant biological processes such as cell wall synthesis and structuralization, lignification, carbohydrates metabolism and transport. This element also acts in cell division and differentiation in meristematic tissues. However, the nutritional needs for calla lily cultivation, and especially boron needs, are still poorly known. Thus, the objective of this work was to evaluate the effects of different boron doses on growth and development, content and accumulation of boron in calla lily plants grown in a nutrient solution. Micropropagated seedlings were submitted to treatments with the doses 0.05; 0.25; 0.50; 0.75; 1.00 and 2.00 mg L-1 boron in Hoagland & Arnon nutrient solution diluted to 30% of its ionic force. The experimental design used was completely randomized blocks with ten replicates. Plants showed no visual deficiency or toxicity symptoms, however, the root system of plants cultivated in 0.05 mg L-1 boron showed reduced growth. The best development of calla lily plants was observed in 1.20 mg L-1 boron in nutrient solution.
