Abstract: The experiment was conducted in the Floriculture laboratory of AICRP on Floriculture at Chiplima, Sambalpur, Odisha for three years from 2011-12 to 2013-14. The experiment was laid out I Factorial CRD with two treatments water and Bleaching powder (50ppm Chlorine) and four packaging materials those were Low density polyethylene (LDPE) 100 gauge, Polypropylene (PP) 100 gauge, Cellophane paper, No packaging material as control. Ten number of flower stem at commercial harvesting stage were taken in three replication. The treated material was kept for 6 hours under ambient condition in cardboard box as the time of transit. The data for observation was pooled over and it was observed that, the cut rose stems of Hybrid tea Rose variety Mainu Parle when packed in 100 gauge LDPE sheet and pulsed with Bleaching powder (50ppm chlorine) exhibited maximum vase life (8.62 days) and maximum final flower diameter (7.28 cm) and water uptake (43.23 ml). However, Percentage weight loss after simulated transit was non-significant in all the treatments.
