plants were selected from a nursery growing stock based only upon the visible
leaf structure. The plant on the left was inoculated on 27 December 2001.
The plant on the right was placed back into the 1 gallon container as the
control. Visual observations were made of the root and leaf structure of two
Star Jasmine plants 2 weeks later. Each plant had been growing as
uninoculated nursery stock for three months.
The same two plants were extracted and examined on 11
January 2002. The leaf structure of the inoculated plant on the left
appears to have filled out with substantial stem growth.
See below for the growth in subsequent months of the same two specimens
under the same conditions.
