ISHS Acta Horticulturae 113: II International Symposium on Post-harvest Physiology of Cut Flowers

SHATTERING OF SNAPDRAGONS - EFFECTS OF SILVER THIOSULFATE AND ETHEPHON

Authors:   D.S. Farnham, M.S. Reid, D.W. Fujino
Abstract:
Pretreatment with silver thiosulfate (STS) solutions sufficient to provide 2.5 ÁMoles Ag+ per spike prevented floret abscission in snapdragons (An tirrhinummajus L) caused either by ethylene or by addition of ethephon to the vase solution. Floral preservatives did not prevent shattering, nor enhance the effect of the STS pretreatment.
