Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to find out the best preservative solution for enhancing the vase life of cut rose cv. Top Secret. Nine different combinations of sucrose, Al2SO4, AgNO3 and 8-HQC including control(distilled water) were taken to study the vase life and those were T1: Control,T2: 2%Sucrose +200ppm Al2SO4,T3: 4%Sucrose + 200ppm Al2SO4,T4: 2%Sucrose + 50ppm AgNO3, T5: 4%Sucrose + 50ppm AgNO3,T6: 2%Sucrose + 200ppm Al2SO4 + 300ppm 8-HQC,T7: 4% Sucrose + 200ppm Al2SO4 + 300ppm 8-HQC,T8: 2% Sucrose + 50ppm AgNO3 + 300ppm 8 HQC,T9: 4%Sucrose + 50ppm AgNO3 + 300ppm 8- HQC. The study revealed that the treatment T6 increased the water uptake, fresh weight in percentage basis and diameter of the flower and also taken maximum number of days (9days) for fully opening of flower. Treatment T2 is found to be the best combination for unfolding of 1st petal and to attain marketable stage. Similarly, treatment T3 is found to be the best treatment combination on basis of visual scoring and treatment T7 showed the maximum vase life (12days) of rose cv. Top Secret.
