Abstract:

In the present study, the effect of preservative solutions on bud opening and vase life of rose cv. “Blush” was observed for three flowering seasons viz., March- April, June- July, and September- October in the year 2018- 19. The cut rose stems (before unfurling of petals) were treated with solutions viz., T1: Control (Distilled Water), T2: Sucrose (1.5%) + 8-HQC (50 ppm), T3: Sucrose (1.5%) + 8-HQC (100 ppm), T4: Sucrose (3%) + 8-HQC (50 ppm) and T5: Sucrose (3%) + 8-HQC (100 ppm) under completely randomized design (factorial) with five replications. The results showed considerable significant variation in post- harvest parameters of cut rose cultivar “Blush” in response to the treatment with preservative solutions containing sucrose as an exogenous source of carbohydrates and 8- HQC as a germicide. It was observed that the treatment of cut roses with solution comprising of Sucrose (3%) + 8-HQC (100 ppm) resulted in best treatment for bud opening index (1.50, 1.32 & 1.25),volume of solution consumed (29.07, 36.60 & 24.40 ml), volume of distilled water consumed (45.67, 52.26 & 59.20 ml),days taken for bud opening (3.60,5.20 & 6.80 days), and vase life (10.00, 13.80 & 13.13 days) in all the three seasons, respectively.
