    Significance Plants generate organs throughout their life as a consequence of the maintenance of postembryonic stem cell niches in meristems. The molecular mechanisms controlling stem cell homeostasis and organ emergence in shoot meristems have been well described, but the manner in which environmental signals influence them to generate plasticity is largely unknown. Using the shoot apical meristem of Arabidopsis as a model system, we show that plants can adapt their organogenesis rate to changes in the availability of nitrate in the soil within a few days, thanks to long-range signaling by cytokinin hormone precursors that travel through the plant, are converted to active hormones at the shoot meristem, and modulate the expression of WUSCHEL , a key regulator of stem cell homeostasis. The shoot apical meristem (SAM) is responsible for the generation of all the aerial parts of plants. Given its critical role, dynamical changes in SAM activity should play a central role in the adaptation of plant architecture to the environment. Using quantitative microscopy, grafting experiments, and genetic perturbations, we connect the plant environment to the SAM by describing the molecular mechanism by which cytokinins signal the level of nutrient availability to the SAM. We show that a systemic signal of cytokinin precursors mediates the adaptation of SAM size and organogenesis rate to the availability of mineral nutrients by modulating the expression of WUSCHEL , a key regulator of stem cell homeostasis. In time-lapse experiments, we further show that this mechanism allows meristems to adapt to rapid changes in nitrate concentration, and thereby modulate their rate of organ production to the availability of mineral nutrients within a few days. Our work sheds light on the role of the stem cell regulatory network by showing that it not only maintains meristem homeostasis but also allows plants to adapt to rapid changes in the environment.
