Table 1 Phenotypic traits of peppermint shoot tip culture for 15 DALV under different light intensities

From: Shoot tip culture: a step towards 13C metabolite flux analysis of sink leaf metabolism

Light intensities Total leaf weight (mg) Total number of leaves
5 µmol m−2 s−1 41.92 ± 3.55a 2 pairs
10 µmol m−2 s−1 43.44 ± 6.76a 2 pairs
20 µmol m−2 s−1 59.36 ± 3.05b 2 pairs
30 µmol m−2 s−1 90.89 ± 4.60c 3 pairs
  1. For statistics, data were evaluated by one-way Anova, followed by Tukey HSD test and statistical difference (p < 0.05) was indicated by different letters (mean ± standard error, n = 5). Zero standard error of leaf number was calculated, as all observations of the same treatment were identical
