Extension of vase life of cut marigold tagetes patula and chrysanthemum flowers by the use of cobalt chloride


Indian Journal of Experimental Biology 19(2): 150-154
Extension of vase life of cut marigold tagetes patula and chrysanthemum flowers by the use of cobalt chloride
Cut flowers of French marigold (T. patula L.) showed a longer shelf-life (.apprx. 37%) when held in 100 .mu.M CoCl2 solution. They showed greater weight gains over flowers held in water. The loss of fresh weight was also delayed. Similar results were obtained with chrysanthemum cv. Coimbatore Yellow with CoCl2 (500 or 750 .mu.M) + sucrose (0.1 M). The shelf-life was extended from 10 days (control) to 16 days [CoCl2 (750 .mu.M) + sucrose (0.1 M)].
