Relationship of floral preservatives to water movement, fluoride distribution and injury in gladiolus and other cut flowers


Acta Horticulturae (41): 171-182
Relationship of floral preservatives to water movement, fluoride distribution and injury in gladiolus and other cut flowers
Cut gladiolus spikes were held in water or 8-hydroxyquinoline citrate plus sucrose (8-HQC + S) with and without fluoride (as NaF). At 3 days, injury and F content were greater in the basal than in the upper florets. After 4 days, the severity of injury and F content increased at a greater rate in the 3rd and 5th florets than in the basal floret. Spikes held in 8-HQC + S had a greater F content and more injury than spikes held in water.
