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

, : Studies directed towards prolonging the life of the cut flower in the Mediterranean varieties of Dianthus caryophyllus. Acta Horticulturae 1974; (43, II): 307-318

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.

N increased yield significantly and optimum was > 120 ppm. K increased yield and optimum was >90 ppm. P, <30 ppm, and Ca, <300 ppm, had no obvious effects. There was definite NK interaction.
