internode -- The region of a stem between two nodes, when there is no branching of the vascular tissue.
lamina -- Any broad and flattened region of a plant or alga, which allows for increased photosynthetic surface area.

The section of stem between two nodes
Interplanting (companion planting)
Growing two or more plants together in a close association ...

Internode The stem space between leaf or flower nodes.
Interspecific Between species; hybrid cross.
Interstem/interstock A piece of stem tissue grafted between a rootstock and a scion.

INTERNODE: The area on a stem between nodes.
INTERPLANTING: Mixing two or more plants, tall and short, for foliage difference.
INVASIVE: The ability of a plant to spread quickly and crowd out other plants.

Stunted, short internodes, purple or dark green foliage; old leaves die back; flowers and fruit poor. Slow growth, delayed maturity.
Phosphorus is poorly available at high and low pH, in dry or cold soils, and in high-organic container soils. Apply according to soil test.
Potassium (K) ...

The section of stem between two nodes; it has no buds.
Lateral bud
A bud in a leaf axil, on the side of the stem.
The principal organ of photosynthesis, contains a bud at its base.
Leaf scar
The scar left on the plant stem after the leaf has fallen.
Lenticel ...

Stems have swellings at certain points called nodes. A node is the point on a stem where a leaf is or was attached. The area between nodes is termed the ~ . Stems usually grow upward to the light, but may be subterranean.

~ search for term- n. (L. inter, between; nodus, knot) the portion of a stem between nodes.interspecific competition search for term- competition between species for nutrients, space, light, etc.

~The portion of the stem between any two nodes.IonAn atom or group of atoms that carries a negative (anion) or positive (cation) charge, formed by the breakup (disassociation) of molecules as happens when certain molecules or compounds are dissolved in water.

Elongation of rice ~s before flowering.
June bearing
A term applied to short-day strawberry cultivars.

Terminal shoot growth is reduced, with shortened ~s. Infected trees flower heavily and set large numbers of small, highly colored fruit. Leaf discoloration and leaf drop occurs prematurely in infected trees. Affected trees often produce large numbers of sprouts from the rootstock.

The classification is based on the length of what is called the ~. The ~ is the section of stem between the two nodes. When it's long, you have a running type of rhizome. When the ~s are very short, the plant is a compact type.

~s lengthened. Young plants stunted, set few fruits. Older leaves thickened, upward rolling of their bases. Younger leaves narrower than normal, dwarfed, curl slightly upward at tips with petioles twisted, yellowish green. Stems become purplish. Fruit, yellowish-red.

The timber is particularly durable and the broad white ~s are unmistakeable.

Stems must have buds or leaves. The point on a stem at which a flower or leaf develops is called a node. The space between nodes is called the ~. The length of the ~ can be affected by such factors as fertility, light, season, competition and vigor.

axil The upper angle formed by a leaf's stalk (petiole) and the ~s above it on a stem.
axillary bud A bud that forms on an axil.
axillary bud primordium An immature axillary bud.

This is called by the Japanese Kiko-chiku, or the "tortoiseshell Bamboo," from the curious arrangement of the alternately and partially suppressed ~s at the base of the stem, which sheathe it in plate armour like the scales on a tortoises back.

Light yellow vein banding, wavy yellow lines and rings or spots of yellow on the leaves are common indicators of viral infection. Other viral indicators include short ~s (stunted growth) or abnormally shaped leaves.
