Table 2 Frequency of flower petal regeneration from explants of different ages

From: Creating a novel petal regeneration system for function identification of colour gene of grape hyacinth

Flower stage Frequency of flower petal regeneration (%) Average petal number per explant
a 0.0 ± 0.0c 0.0 ± 0.0b
b 57.0 ± 11.0a 10.7 ± 4.0a
c 19.7 ± 10.1b 9.0 ± 6.2a
d 0.0 ± 0.0c 0.0 ± 0.0b
