Meng et al. (2013)

The youngest fully-expanded leaves of plants grown from seed to a height of 15 cm that were transplanted singly into 10-L pots filled with 6 kg of homogenized forest topsoil, and which after one more month of growth were moved into glass chambers out-of-doors at the Ailaoshan Station for Subtropical Forest Ecosystem Studies in southwest China, where they were grown under well-watered (WW) conditions of 80% relative soil water content
