ISHS Acta Horticulturae 91: Symposium on Growth Regulators in Floriculture

PERSPECTIVE IN THE USE OF GROWTH REGULATORS TO INCREASE THE CUT FLOWERS VASE LIFE

Authors:   A. PAULIN, K. MULOWAY
DOI:   10.17660/ActaHortic.1979.91.13
Abstract:
After a brief survey of the general metabolism of the cut flowers senescence, the results of some experiments with various cytokinins supplied to cut carnations ( var. SCANIA ) are discussed. The interest of cytokinins ( 6-Benzylaminopurine, kinetin ) in increasing the vase life is very limited, but these substances may play a role with regard to water stress. Some perspectives to increase the efficiency of preservatives solutions are suggested.
