Method Miscanthus × giganteus and maize (Zea mays) FR1064 (a commercial inbred line, Illinois Foundation Seeds) was grown in soil-less potting media (Sunshine Mix LC12 Sun Gro Horticulture) following the procedure of Naidu and Long (2004). Plants were grown at 14°C/12°C (cold) or 25°C/20°C (warm) day/night temperature and 14-h-day/10-h-night cycle under 500 µmol photons m-2 s-1 in controlled-environment chambers equipped with a mixture of high-pressure mercury and sodium lamps (E-15H Conviron).
