Effect of peat types and frequency of watering on Poinsettia


, : Effect of peat types and frequency of watering on Poinsettia. Acta Horticulturae (37): 2038-2045

Christmas-flowering poinsettias were grown singly in 12.5-cm plastic pots. Plants grown in wood fen peat were nearly as vigorous as those grown in the standard sphagnum peat compost and had as high a nutrient status. Observations conducted afterwards in centrally-heated rooms indicated that peat type had no effect on plant longevity.
