Hi all,

Thanks, Diana; so we need to add a couple more things to this 
list:   Energy  and  Nutrition

1. Maturity (size)

2.  Energy (sunlight)

3.  Nutrition (fertilizer)

4. Photoperiod (day length)

5. Moisture

6. Temperature

7. Fire/smoke

8. Changes in weather (i.e., barometric pressure changes, ionization of the 
air, presence of nitrogen oxides from lightning, rain itself)

Did we overlook or forget anything else?

Best wishes,
Jim Shields
