Flower-bud blasting in tulips

, : Flower-bud blasting in tulips. Acta Horticulturae (47): 149-155

The physiological disorder of blasting is promoted in susceptible tulip cvs by certain storage and greenhouse conditions. Similar effects resulted from exposure of bulbs to 1-3 p.p.m. ethylene for 6 weeks during storage, or of plants in the greenhouse to 0.5 p.p.m. for 3 days, or injection of the flower buds in the greenhouse with ABA (0.5 ml of 20 mg/l solution).

Tulip bulbs cvs Apeldoorn and Paul Richter were precooled at 5 deg C for 12 weeks and then stored at 21 deg or planted and forced in a greenhouse at 18 deg . Immediately after precooling CEPA [ethephon] (0.5 mg in 1 ml), GA4/7 (0.5 mg in 1 ml) or...

An increase in bulb N content brought about by N applications during growing made tulip bulbs which had been exposed to ethylene more susceptible to flower bud blasting. In the absence of exposure to ethylene there was no relationship between N an...

Flower size was smaller with 4 deg cooling, although the plan...
