Method p.1256 5th paragraph:"On December 17, seeds of Delhi tobacco were sown in fiber flats (25×15 cm) containing silica sand (size No. 24). On January 7 and January 21, seeds of Early Greenball cabbage and Contender beans, respectively, were sown in similar flats containing a 1:1 (v/v) mixture of peat moss and vermiculite. After emergence, seedlings were watered and fertilized every other day with a dilute solution of 20-20-20 fertilizer (0.5 g/liter H20). Plants at all stages of growth were kept under greenhouse conditions at a mean daily temperature of 22±2°C."
Comments p.1256 bottom paragraph:"On February 21, seedlings of each species were removed from the flats, washed with distilled water (22°C), wiped free of excess water, and weighed. Seedlings of uniform weight (tobacco, ca. 1.6 g cabbage, ca. 1.8 g beans, ca. 4.0 g) were transplanted to white styrofoam platforms…"
