Definizione

The section of a plant between two successive nodes or joints. 1

Nota

The part of the stem between nodes. The internode length in vines varies between different vine varieties and with growing conditions. It is smaller with weak roots, low temperatures, water stress, mineral deficiencies (especially of nitrogen), and the position along the shoot (with the nodes closest together at the base and the tip). Shoots on vigorous vines have long internodes, and are large in diameter. Measured lengths vary from about 1 mm to 350 mm/13.6 in but commercially used cuttings usually have internode lengths between 50 and 150 mm. 2

Contesto

Very short internodes usually indicate disease or poor growing conditions. 3
