Burial induced red-light requirement for germination, resulted in a shift from low fluence response (LFR) to very low fluence response (VLFR) of the phytochrome
plays significant roles in germination, shoot development and branching, flowering, leaf development and other various growth and development parameters of the plants (Padem and Ozdamar, 2002).
The explanation for the shorter seedling length in the dark is the permanence of phytochrome
A throughout seedling development, which inhibits etiolation, a phenomenon that only occurs in the presence of phytochrome
B (Carvalho & Peres, 2013).
Red light-induced phytochrome
relocation into the nucleus in Adiantum capillus-veneris.
1985), positive photoblastic seeds could be characterized by requiring a high threshold of phytochrome
far-red (Pfr), to germinate, existing within the seed Pfr in an insufficient amount to start the germination process.

The observed effect of potassium nitrate is well known in other species and could be explained because it supplies the system requirements of phytochrome
in photoblastic seeds (MATAKIADIS et al.

can sense the ratio of red (660 nm) and far-red light (730 nm) in its environment.
