Squash photoperiod
« on: 2020-05-17, 04:33:47 PM »
Hello,
This year i have try to sow a few squash at shadow under a vegetale covert and observed their comportement for the moment the plant of squash is green more light that a plant at sunshine  and have a more little leaf. I think that the shadow could  favorized the root system and the female Flower with the action of the auxin.The plant of the last year has product a lot of male flower but a fruit very late the 15th september and little 300g.A shadow could be equilibrate auxin and gibbelerin? Last year she has did a lot of male flower.
The squash is mi maxima with the gene of pepo twin male flower.

My squash at shadow begin to give a fruit.
I have make a test with a butternut ( moschata) before is grow i have put the pot a few days in the house far of a window and he has gave a fruit but after a few days at sunshine i note that the fruit is fallen. For me cucurbita maxima and moschata are not totally neutral at the photoperiod.

The experience is to lay down thr juvenil phase thanks to the shadow.
The result is that one plant has make 3 leafs before to run.
A plant wich grow with a normal conditions make two leafs before to run.
I will found the minimal stade of developement for that the plant is able to make a fruit.
