Behavior of peat substrates during cyclamen and poinsettia cultivation

Behavior of peat substrates during cyclamen and poinsettia cultivation

Acta Horticulturae ( 450): 439-447

The influence of age, grade (particle size range) and species of plant on the shrinkage and air content of peat-based substrates as well as the effects of these physical parameters on growth and final plant quality was examined in experiments on media made from 7 different peats in Italy. Finnish, German, Irish, Lithuanian and Swedish sphagnum peats with two particle size ranges (0-12 and 0-18 mm) were used to grow pot plants of Cyclamen persicum Europa and poinsettia Peterstar.
