Gladiolus corm curing and storage environments in relation to flower production






Acta Horticulturae (47): 267-276

Gladiolus corm curing and storage environments in relation to flower production

Although curing gladiolus corms is generally regarded as a drying process, a factorial experiment with the cvs Elisabeth the Queen and Valeria showed that plants from corms dried rapidly during 6 days after harvest showed reduced flower and corm yields compared with those from corms cured with gradual water loss. The best yields followed 6 days of curing at 35 deg C with little or no movement of air over the corms.

Corms of 4 gladiolus varieties (Friendship, Valeria, Spic and Span and Elizabeth the Queen) were either cured in a dry shed before the old corms and roots were cleaned off or cleaned immediately after harvest. Part of each lot was held at 90-95 de...

Picardy gladiolus corms planted at Beltsville, Md., produced more spikes with more florets, also more new corms after storage at 40[degree]F than at 50[degree]F. A higher percentage of Picardy cormels sprouted following storage at 40[degree]F than...
