[ENG]Paclobutrazol(PBZ)is a retardant often used in potted ornamental plants to control their growth and compactness. The distribution in plant,substrate and leachate of PBZ applied to containerized oleander seedlings were studied after a single liquid drench application to the substrate surface(20mga.i.perplant) in a nursery dedicated to pot production in SE Spain. PBZ significantly reduced all growth parameters, providing more compact plants of good commercial value and confirming its ability to reduce the vertical growth of native oleander in the nursery. The level of PBZ residues in leaves washigh-erat the end of pot cultivation (156 days post PBZ application) than at the first sampling time(30 days after PBZ applica-tion), where as the level in stems decreased for the same period of time. PBZ residues in roots remained constant during the experimental period. The high level of PBZ residues detected in the substrate 30 days after application had decreased significantly(by67%) by the ...
