Conditions for measuring vase life of cut flowers

, : Conditions for measuring vase life of cut flowers. Acta Horticulturae (41): 217-226

Factors important in connection with the measurement of vase life of cut flowers are discussed, viz.: conditioning of the flowers, temperature, RH, light, air circulation and air change and ethylene. The ideal conditions obtained comprised 20 deg C, 60% RH, daylight in winter supplemented with fluorescent light (both of low intensity), low air circulation speed and continuous air replenishment.

A rapid enrichment approach based on a pentachlorophenol (PCP) feeding strategy which linked the PCP loading rate to methane production was applied to an upflow anaerobic sludge bed reactor inoculated with anaerobic sludge. Due to this strategy, o...
