Protoplasmodia of Clastoderma debaryanum multiply in culture to produce more individual plasmodia, each of which fruits into a single sporangium. After treatment of cultures with 1 ppm kinetin and with 1 ppm, 5 ppm, and 10 ppm aqueous solutions of 3-indoleacetic acid, the number of sporangia produced was consistently greater than in controls. Fewer sporangia, as compared to controls, were produced after treatment with kinetin at 5 ppm and 10 ppm, and no consistent results were obtained after treatment with gibberellic acid at the same concentrations.
