Rooting of cuttings of three geranium species (Pelargonium graveolens L'Hers, P. peltatum L'Hers, and P. zonale L.) was promoted by 4-chlororesorcinol (4-CR), a polyphenol oxidase inhibitor applied at millimolar concentrations for 2 h. In P. peltatum L'Hers cuttings, the treatment inhibited flowering during the rooting period. The subsequent growth of the cuttings was also affected by the treatment with 4-CR. Treated cuttings developed more numerous and larger leaves and produced an overall greater fresh and dry weight. The enhanced vegetative growth is attributed to the better developed root system.
