Abstract:

The experiment of vase solution was standardized for longer vase-life of gladiolus flower. In this investigation gladiolus spikes were harvested at basal pair opened bud stage in early morning from the field, thereafter spikes were put into conical flask containing vase solution of different concentration as per treatment in laboratory of Department of Horticulture. The observations were recorded on florets opening, spike weight, vase solution absorption, florets drooping and vase-life at 2 days interval. The maximum 12 days vase-life of flower was obtained with continuous florets opening, spike weight first increased thereafter decreased, absorption of vase solution first increased thereafter decreased and continuous florets drooping, when spikes were kept with 6% sucrose + 3% citric acid to be best for maximum florets opening till end of the experiment.
