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.
