 Portuguese term or phrase: a cada 2 entrenós Deixando-se apenas um broto lateral a cada 2 entrenós (an experimental procedure in melon growing) I'm stuck on this: a cada 2 entrenós (yes, easy, but my solutions just sound weird to me). Your opinions and suggestions are much welcome. I could come up with: per 2-internode interval at every 2-internode interval in intervals of 2 internodes each Vote. Suggest. Get KudoZ!

 at every two internodes Explanation:Henrique, 'Internode' already represents the interval between 'nodes'. See below. Shoot development A. Shoot growth is initiated in the embryo from the epicotyl, which may or may not have one or more leaf primordia B. As the stem elongates it differentiates into nodes and internodes 1. Nodes = areas where leaves arise 2. Internodes = the intervals between the nodes HIHs!

 That's what I was looking for. Many thanks to all. I decided not to use "every other" formulas because the Portuguese original does denote 1 left at every 2: it could be 1 yes and the next yes as well, as long as the 2 internode lengths are sequential. Gee, is that complicated or what? Thanks to you all, anyway.4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

at every second (2nd) internode interval

Explanation:
Henrique, I would change 2 into 2nd, which in English sounds better.

One lateral sprout for every two internodes.

Explanation:
Henrique,
How many sprouts are there at every internode? Two? And do you say lateral sprout? Aren't all sprouts just sprouts when they come off the stem? Isn't a a sprout off the stem "lateral" by definition? Anyway, I would say it like I did above. That means, one internode has two sprouts or three [don;t know] while the next one, only has one. One yes, one no. Right?

OK
After reading your note, I think I would say:
One lateral shoot for every two internodes.

SORRY: this is my final:

One lateral shoot at every other internode. [That\'s one yes and one no. I think every other makes it clear]

FINAL FINAL: One lateral shoot at every other node

at every two internodes

Explanation:
Henrique,

'Internode' already represents the interval between 'nodes'. See below.

Shoot development

A. Shoot growth is initiated in the embryo from the epicotyl, which may or may not have one or more leaf primordia

B. As the stem elongates it differentiates into nodes and internodes

1. Nodes = areas where leaves arise

2. Internodes = the intervals between the nodes

HIHs!

leaving (only) one axil at every other one

Explanation:
( pinching everyother axil)

this sounds better, huh?

there are many articles on watermelon farming... they refer to "vine" not stem.
My ex is a gardner and he always refered to the "knots" not to the intervals in between the knots.

Leaves and flowers come out at the axils... ( lots of choice now for you)

"The flowers are borne singly in the axils, the pistillate or hermaphroditic one occurring in every seventh axil, the staminate ones occupying the intervening axils.
"

leaving almost 15 years with a gardner I have never heard he mention \"internode\".

the text is of simple language, I question myself if internode is right... I am having doubts...
