Abstract
Derris elliptica is a creeper which sends out runners many feet in length: some plants in. Amani have grown up supports to a height of over 30 feet. As usually cultivated in Malaya and other countries they have been left to creep along the ground. Preliminary trials in Amani indicated that staked plants gave a higher yield of root than unstaked ones, a result one might expect on theoretical grounds because staked plants have a greater area of leaf exposed to the light and therefore would presumably show greater growth because of increased photosynthesis
