Abstract:

Effect of holding solutions on Dendrobium orchids cv. Sonia 17 for improving vase life of cut spikes was studied. In the trail using holding solutions, 8HQC (300 ppm) + 4% sucrose was best in achieving all parameters like Vase life (31.50), Physiological loss of weight (36.39%), Days for fading of first flower (18.14), Days for fading of last flower (52.38), Percent bud opening per spike (86.06%) and number of unopened and abscised buds per spike (13.88%) on Dendrobium cut spikes cv. Sonia 17 when compared to control.
