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

, : 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

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)].

The vase life of cut Tagetes patula flowers was extended by about 37% and 30%, respectively, when they were held in solutions of 100% and 250 mu M CoCl2 rather than in water. The fresh weight loss which normally occurred after the first 4 days was...
