Growth characteristics of leaf positions P1–P9 of an A. thaliana Col-0 rosette in 8 h short days at vegetative developmental stage 1.12–1.13. a Scheme of leaf positions P1–P9. P1 is the youngest fully visible leaf. P1 has on average 7.1 mm length and 0.29 mg dry mass. Older leaves are shifted in the majority of individuals counter-clock wise by angles of 137.5°, respectively. Juvenile leaves and cotyledons are not shown, b dry mass to fresh mass ratio, average of 3 independent pools of 20 leaves, c, d dry mass and leaf length, e, f gain of dry mass per day and longitudinal growth, g, h relative gain of dry mass and length compared to leaf measurements at stage 1.12–1.13 (median and box-plot of n = 68 plants)
