Optimal levels of light, sucrose and carbon dioxide for Stage II micropropagation of chrysanthemum were determined. Three levels each of light, of sucrose and of force-ventilated carbon dioxide were used for a 3x3x4 factorial experiment of the same culture. A fourth level of carbon dioxide constituted a control. The results showed that a significant increase in dry weight was effected by force-ventilated carbon dioxide and middle light level when sucrose was reduced from highest to middle level. The factor levels providing greatest growth of the culture were measured.
