BioAtlantis treated Surfinia, cv. Surfinia White, grown in a peat-based substrate in reduced nitrogen conditions had 3 % longer branches, 2 % more branches, 31 % more flowers, 9 % more fresh weight, 10 % more dry weight, a 5 % better root development, a 8.9 % lower chlorophyll-index, a 6.6 % lower flavonolindex, a 11 % lower anthocyanin-index compared to the untreated control grown in the same nitrogen stress conditions.
