Effect of different preservatives on freshness of cut carnation flowers



Effect of different preservatives on freshness of cut carnation flowers



Plant Physiology Communications 39(1): 27-28



Cut carnations (Dianthus caryophyllus) with two leaves (20 cm in length) were treated with 3 types of preservatives in order to maintain freshness at room temperatures of 14-25 degrees C and RHs of 69-89%. The best effect was obtained with 50 mg AgNO3 + 40 mg benzoic acid + 200 mg 8-HQ/litre + 3% sucrose. After treatment, the fresh weight and diameter of cut flowers increased, water balance in plants improved, and peroxidase activity was inhibited.
