Blogpost - Flowering and the Role of Vernalization

View This Resource

This blog post from the Fast Plants Team addresses the question "Do Fast Plants need Vernalization to Flower?". This post describes the concept of vernalization (requiring a cold period to induce flowering) and its role in regulating the development of flower structures in flowering plants. Some Fast Plants relatives in the Brassica genus require vernalization to induce flowering; however, Fast Plants do not require vernalization and will flower at about 14 days after planting when grown in recommended conditions.
