The effect of growing temperature on keeping quality of cut roses


, : The effect of growing temperature on keeping quality of cut roses. Acta Horticulturae (41): 77-92

The keeping quality of cut flowers of the cvs Zorina, Garnette and Baccara diminished as the growing temperature decreased. The best longevity was obtained at a growing temperature of 21-24 deg C. A reduction in temperature to 12-15 deg during the last 3 weeks before the flowers were cut greatly reduced the vase life. The water uptake of the cut flowers was favoured by a high growing temperature. Flowers grown at 24 deg absorbed about twice as much water as flowers grown at 12 deg.

Jensen, H.E.K.; Hansen, W., 1972: The keeping quality of roses. II. The effect of cold storage on the keeping quality and further development of the flower. Flowers of 3 rose cvs, cut on 3 dates, were stored at 2 degrees C for 3, 6, 9, 12 or 15 days. Cold storage for longer than 6 days markedly reduced the subsequent vase life. Flowers cut in June lasted longer than those cut in August and September.

If such a solution was not used by the florist any treatme...
