Studies on the possibility of delaying flowering of tulip

Acta Horticulturae (47): 251-258

Studies on the possibility of delaying flowering of tulip

The behaviour of a tulip bulb after storage at 2 deg C depends on its physiological state at the start of storage. Bulbs of late cvs lifted before they were mature and immediately stored at 2 deg were held for 6 months at this temperature, before storage for 2 weeks at 30 deg. At the end of this treatment the bulbs differentiated normal flowers at 20 deg.

In trials with plants raised from cooled bulbs, a 50 p.p.m. ancymidol soil drench delayed flowering in the cv. Oxford but not in Merry Widow. Plant height was reduced by 25 and 50 p.p.m. ancymidol in Oxford, Apeldoorn, General Eisenhower and Presi...

Heat treatment (35 degrees C.) was given for varying periods, starting on different dates, to bulbs of 2 tulip varieties. The most successful treatment, giving 100% non-flowering plants, was 13 days at 35 degrees C. starting from early October. Th...

Belynskaja, E.V., 1964: Delaying wilting in cut tulip flowers. The water content of cut tulip flowers standing in water was higher than that of flowers on growing plants, and therefore the more rapid wilting of cut flowers cannot be explained in terms of reduced water supply. The intensity of respiration and...

Seiun until July to September. Four hours' lighting from midnight, at 50 lx, for 37 successive days from the date of pinching, markedly delayed...
