Studies directed towards prolonging the life of the cut flower in the Mediterranean varieties of Dianthus caryophyllus


Acta Horticulturae 1974; (43, II): 307-318
Studies directed towards prolonging the life of the cut flower in the Mediterranean varieties of Dianthus caryophyllus
Cut flowers of the carnation cvs Mireia and Lima were placed in solutions containing 8-hydroxyquinoline sulphate (8-HQS), sucrose, Cupferron, mandelic acid, Everbloom and Cornell solution at various rates. Cupferron and mandelic acid, which act as metal-complexing agents, had the same beneficial effects on the fresh weight, diameter, petal growth and vase life of flowers as did 8-HQS, also a complexing agent.
