Abstract:

The present investigation entitled, ‘Effect of growing media on growth, flower production of LA hybrid lilies’ was carried out at the experimental farm of Department of Floriculture and Landscape Architecture, Dr. Y.S. Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan (H.P) during 2014-2015. The experiment was laid out in a Completely Randomized Design (factorial) consisting of two cultivars i.e. ‘Batistero’ and ‘Courier’ and seven growing media M1-sand+soil+FYM, (1:1:1, v/v), M2-sand+soil+FYM (2:1:1;v/v), M3-cocopeat+FYM (1:1;v/v), M4-cocopeat+soil+FYM (1:1:1;v/v), M5-M1+cocopeat (1:1;v/v), M6-M1+vermicompost (2:1;v/v) and M7-M1+ vermicompost + cocopeat (2:1:1;v/v). Findings revealed that earliest sprouting, number of leaves per plant, days taken for flowering, number of flowers/spike, duration of flowering, weight of stem and vase life was recorded best when LA hybrids bulbs were grown in M7 : M1+ vermicompost + cocopeat (2:1:1,v/v). However, plant height, stem length, bud length, size of flower, was recorded best when LA hybrids bulbs were grown in M1- sand+soil+FYM, (1:1:1, v/v). Hence, it can be concluded that for quality flower production of LA hybrids cultivars a medium containing (sand+soil+FYM) + vermicompost + cocopeat (2:1:1,v/v) was found most suitable.
