Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to study the effect of different holding solution combinations on vase life of cut carnation cv. Kiro. The flowers were kept under common holding solution (sucrose 4% + 8-HQS 200 ppm) along with GA3 at 25 ppm recorded the highest chlorophyll content of leaf (87.48 SPAD unit) on 2nd day and gradually decreased through vase life extends, whereas significantly the highest chlorophyll content of calyx (46.86 SPAD unit) extended through the vase life period resulting in reduced microbial count (1.00 × 10-5 cfu/ml) initially and (85.10 × 10-5 cfu/ml) final microbial count thereby extending maximum vase life (20.32 days) which has been extended the vase life period of carnation flower cv. Kiro.


Keywords: Carnation, Holding solution, Chlorophyll content, Microbial count and vase life
