Vegetative growth in most lines of maize is terminated stage in development by the conversion of the shoot inflorescence, the tassel. The conversion from under developmental control, the basis of which is developmental potential of the shoot apical meristem stage at which it is determined to form a tassel. We culture, that meristems are not determined to form a vegetative nodes have been initiated. We also show separate, later event in the development of a maize stages can be distinguished in which the meristem is phyllotaxis of a tassel when cultured but develops that normally give rise to sets of florets.
