Moisture supply and fertilization of pot plants

, : Moisture supply and fertilization of pot plants. Acta Horticulturae (35): 41-47

In a pot experiment with gloxinias 5 rates of N (100-500 mg N/l substrate) and 3 substrate moisture levels (90, 65 and 40% of field capacity) were compared. The growth of the aerial parts was highest at 90% of field capacity and decreased greatly at the lower moisture levels. Increasing water stress also reduced the growth increment per unit of N supplied.

In a pot experiment, gloxinia received nitrogen rates of 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 mg N per litre substrate. The soil moisture levels were 90, 65 and 40% of the substrate water capacity. The salt concentration of the substrate solution seemed to...
