Vase life studies of gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflora) cv. H.B. Pitt. I. Effect of NPK and spacing on vase life. II. Effect of different chemicals

Vase life studies of gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflora) cv. H.B. Pitt. I. Effect of NPK and spacing on vase life. II. Effect of different chemicals

Acta Horticulturae (181): 279-283

Plants grown at 15 x 15, 30 x 15 or 30 x 30 cm received N:P2O5:K2O at 100-300:50-150:50-150 kg/ha. The spikes were cut and placed in 6% sucrose, GA3 at 60 p.p.m. or in distilled water. N had a significant effect on vase life, with spikes from the lowest N treatment having the largest number of open florets/spike. Spacing at 30 x 15 cm had a better effect than other spacings.
