Purple Stem, Hairy Variety
Purple Stem, Hairy
Phenotype: purple stems
Purple Stem, Hairy is a true-breeding Fast Plants stock that is homozygous dominant for a gene that regulates expression of the purple pigment, anthocyanin. This stock displays purple coloration in stem (most evident in the hypocotyl), leaves, and buds. Note that purple intensity is also influenced by light intensity. Hairs known as trichomes are found in varying numbers, mostly on the stem and leaves of this stock.
