Pia Ruisi-Besares: Experimental restoration of Cyrtandra kaulantha (HaÊ»iwale).
Optimal growth conditions for rare Hawaiian plants are largely unknown, making the results of restoration efforts unpredictable. We grew plants in the greenhouse under different local soil treatments and compared differences in growth once outplanted. Understanding the potential relationship between plant growth and local soil composition can help inform best practices for restoration of native species.
