Vascular blockage and its inhibition in cut rose flowers

, : Vascular blockage and its inhibition in cut rose flowers. Acta Horticulturae (41): 159-170

The effects of ion exchange resins (packed in columns in sections of tubing placed over stem segments) on vascular blockage were studied in cut roses by measuring blockage rates in excised stem segments and by determining water uptake and fresh weight retention in aging cut roses.

When cut flowers of five rose [Rosa hybrida L.,] varieites (Sonia, Ilona, Motrea, Jack Frost and Mercedes) were held in water for 7 days, lowest hydraulic conductance was found in the basal 5 cm stem segment. After artificially blocking about two...

When placed in the vase, cut roses often exhibit symptoms of water stress such as leaf wilting, lack of flower development and bending of the stem. The cause of the development of water stress has been well established; however, the nature of the...

Stems of cut rose flowers (Rosa hybrida L., cvs. Sonia, Ilona, Polka, and Frisco) were held in a sodium hypochlorite solution and then placed in distilled water or in a buffer at pH 6.0. After 2 days, many bacteria were found in the basal end of t...

Low water uptake is due to an occlusion, mainly located in the basal stem end. No evidence has been found for a reaction of the plant after cutting,...

Cut rose (Rosa hybrida L.) flowers placed in water often wilt prematurely, which is partially due to bacterial accumulation in the stems. Bacterial strains in the stems are mainly pseudomonads and enterobacteria. The possible sources of these orga...
