      The response of abaxial and adaxial stomata to various growth substances were examined in leaves ofTagetes erecta L. From stomatal studies it is clear that growth substances produced several variations in the morphology of stomata. The anomalies recorded include persistent stomatal initial, loss of one or both guard cells in a significant percentage of stomata, contiguous stomata, cytoplasmic connections, one and a half contiguous stomata etc. Significant changes in frequency of epidermal cells and stomata, size of epidermal cells and stomata and stomatal index were noticed in various treatments.

      Several leaf deformities viz bilobed leaf segment, asymmetrical leaf base, unsegmented simple leaves etc, accompanied with changes in leaf architecture were observed inTagetes erecta L. plants sprayed with aqueous solutions of different growth substances namely Indole-3-acetic acid, Gibberellic acid, 2,3,5-triiodobenzoic acid and Kinetin. The major changes include the gradual conversion of segmented simple leaf into an unsegmented one owing to 2,3,5-triiodobenzoic acid spray treatment.
