We investigated the influence of ethylene exposure on dry or hydrated tuberous roots of the ornamental geophyte Ranunculus asiaticus. Ethylene concentrations up to 10 μL·L-1 for 3 weeks in the dry state or at least 1 week in the hydrated state had negligible influence on post-planting growth in any of the observed parameters. We therefore conclude that Ranunculus asiaticus tuberous roots are ethylene-insensitive and special precautions to avoid ethylene exposure are unnecessary.
