PHOTOSYNTHESIS: And Temperatures For every 18 deg.F. (10 deg.C.) rise, the rate of photosynthesis increases from 2.2 to 2.6 times, until 86 F. (30 C.) to 95 F. (35 C.) is reached when no further increase occurs; far above that the rate may decrease. OR72-34 0
PHOTOSYNTHESIS: In Cattleyas They fix CO-two both day and night; the balance point of photosynthesis/food formation is at 200 lux, i.e., food formation is just equal to transpiration, at light intensities from 200 lux to 5000 lux the rate of photqsynthesis increases to its maximum level; in winter the poorer level of light requires that plants be kept at 50 dF (lO dC).
