Then they tried altering the day length, finally providing seven hours of light and seventeen hours of darkness per day. After a few days of such treat­ ment, the plants bloomed and produced seed. Further experiments with other plants showed that plants differ in the proportion of day and night they need to produce seeds-and thus plants came to be divided into four groups according to the duration of light they need to induce bloom.

Plants in this group remain vegetative when days are short. On the other hand, plants that normally flower in the short days of autumn or winter came to be known as short-day plants. Such plants remain vegetative when days are too long.
