Abstract Seedlings of Stylosanthes guianensis var. guianensis were grown in long (14 h) days in five temperature regimes for varying periods before transfer to short (11 h) days at 30 °C/21 °C. The juvenile phase before seedlings responded to inductive conditions was c. 45-50 d, 50-60 d and 60-70 d for cv. Schofield, cv. Cook and C.P.I. 34906 respectively, which is positively related to their critical photoperiod for flowering. Temperatures favourable for growth (e.g. 30 °C/26 °C) reduced the juvenile phase in C.P.I. 34906 and in Cook, which did not flower in 11 h days unless previously exposed to more than 18 long days.In a second experiment cv. Cook was confirmed as a long-short day plant. Seedlings were grown for 50 d in a glasshouse with natural daylength extended to 13, 14, 16 or 24 h before transfer to 12 h photoperiods. Cook floral development was positively related to daylength provenance before transfer and plants in continuous 12 h did not flower.Shortening daylength after 48 cycles of 12 h to 11.75 h did not result in continued floral development in Cook plants but cv. Graham plants were initiated or transitional by 75 d.
