Agroecologist Anton Gladilin told to the publication “Vesti Podmoskovya” why some plants sometimes confuse the seasons and bloom in autumn or winter.
“Autumn flowering is associated with disruptions in phenological cycles,” he noted. This is due to “stress factors (for example, pests) and weather,” the expert said. We are talking about temperature, daylight hours and humidity.
The speaker cited a combination of cool and abnormally warm weather, which is uncharacteristic of autumn, as the reason for the disruptions in the passage of cycles. The dormant state due to prolonged warming is changed by the awakening of dormant generative buds.
“Disruptions can also occur after a long summer drought in response to a wet autumn. When it’s hot, the trees stop developing, and when the rains come, they wake up,” the media interlocutor emphasized.
