    Pyongyang, March 22 (KCNA) -- Scientists of the Experimental Biological Institute of the Branch Academy of Biology under the Academy of Sciences of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea have developed a new method of cultivating Kimilsungia. According to the new method, they cultivate flower seedlings with extracts from substances which are abundant in Korea without using various kinds of expensive reagents.
    It makes it possible to shorten the cultivating period of seedlings to five months from eight while cultivating them two or three times bigger than those by the old method. Three or four years had been needed to bring the flower into bloom but a year and six months or two years are enough in case of the new method.
    They have also found out the characteristics of flower-bud differentiation of Kimilsungia and a method of controlling the flowering period so as to make the flower open any time including the Sun's Day, President Kim Il Sung's birthday (April 15).
    They, on the basis of their research, published the book "Biology of Kimilsungia" which deals with the flower's biological features, cultivating condition and propagating method.
