Q: inducible promoters for plants

Dear Netters,

I am in need of an inducible promoter for plant transformation. It is
important that this promoter would not "leak" if not induced, e.g., the
hs-promoter would not work for us. Does anybody have experience with the
glucocorticoid-inducible promoter? 
I seem to remember a paper some three (or more) years ago dealing with a
Cu-inducible promoter. Did anybody try this one? Are the inducing
concentrations of Cu toxic for the plants? 
Is there any review dealing with this topic, by chance?
I'd appreciate any help or comments! 
Thanx in advance,
