Well how about not using wind to create the stress. I seem to
remember an exp. where somebody put young plants on a shaker
moving at a slow rpm to induce collenchyma formation. If you had
these plants in a growth chamber at a relative high humidity and
others in a silimar chamber sans the shaker issues of water
relations would be lots less important.
By the way - it is nice to hear that somebody cares about structure.
My god - you even used the " A " word (anatomy)! Will wonders
never cease. Being trained as a structural botanists (that's
a plant anatomist in drag) I had come to wonder if people were
still interested in plant structure.
Enought bitching -
Be well -
I could take this home, Marilyn.
This is something teenage boys might find of interest.
