The role of chemical adjuvants and ethylene synthesis on cut flower longevity


Acta Horticulturae (41): 117-132
The role of chemical adjuvants and ethylene synthesis on cut flower longevity
Carnations exhibit 2 distinct phases of ethylene production: a low steady-state phase during which the flower remains turgid and a high log linear phse associated with wilting and senescence. The log linear phase is due to autocatalytic ethylene production which initiates senescence of carnations and other flowers. Environmental factors that create moisture stress or induce ethylene production predispose the flower to senesce.
