Post-harvest water use of leatherleaf fern was not affected when Cloud Cover, Vapor Gard or Wilt Pruf1 were applied 3-28 days prior to harvest. However, post-harvest anti-transpirant dips reduced water use during the first 24 h. The shortest vase life occurred in fronds dipped in water. The incidence of frond curl was not influenced by anti-transpirant applications.
