The effects of N-1-naphthylphthalamic acid (NPA) and 2,3,5-triiodobenzoic acid (TIBA) on the swelling of the stem in intact and decapitated plants of Bryophyllum calycinum in relation to the interaction with auxin, indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), are described. NPA induced conspicuous local internode swelling only in the area of its application in intact plants and in the decapitated internode in the case of simultaneous application of IAA on the top of the internode. By contrast, TIBA applied to

The differential effect of NPA and TIBA on stem swelling in B. calycinum is discussed in relation to their differential mode of action on auxin transport.
