Abstract: An investigation was carried out to increase the vase-life and maximum buds opening of tuberose flower by eco-friendly vase solution. The maximum vase-life of cut tuberose spikes provided 12 days with continuous opening of florets till 8th day, continuous cumulative increase in spike length, absorption of vase solution moderately decreased with periods and florets drooping were observed. When spikes were cut at basal pair opened bud stage from the field at early morning and spikes were put in to conical flask containing 5% sucrose and 100ppm aluminium sulphate as a vase solution, in post graduate laboratory of Horticulture Department at ambient temperature.
