Researches the effects of K-IBA on the establishment of Helianthus debilis subsp. debilis cv. Flora Sun by cuttings. Treating stem cuttings with K-IBA resulted in increased fresh weight and number of roots. However, once rooted cuttings were transplanted into plastic containers, no substantial short-term benefits were evident.
