Response of peat- and compost-based substrates to different levels of irrigation and fertilization in cyclamen

Response of peat- and compost-based substrates to different levels of irrigation and fertilization in cyclamen

Acta Horticulturae ( 401): 537-543

Plants of cyclamen (cv. Halios) were grown in a peat compost (20% German white peat; 60% Swedish 'top spit' white peat; 20% black peat; 180 litre/msuperscript 3 clay) and a conifer bark compost (3:2;1 mixture of composted conifer bark:German white peat:perlite), and irrigated with ebb-and-flow fertigation. The treatments consisted of high and low irrigation frequency (IF) and high and low fertilizer concentration (FC), in all combinations.
