Abstract:
The present experiment on effect of pulsing solution for improving vase life of gerbera was carried out during November, 2019 at Floriculture and Landscaping Laboratory, College of Horticulture, VCSG, Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Bharsar, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. The experiment consists of ten treatments which were replicated three times in Completely Randomized Design. The results of investigation revealed that the treatment applied with 15% Sucrose + 300 ppm 8- HQC (T7) recorded maximum amount of pulsing solution uptake (3.28 ml), per cent weight increase of cut stems after pulsing (10.09), vase life (12.91 days), per cent increase in flower diameter (14.32 cm), amount of distilled water consume (19.89 ml), minimum per cent decrease in weight of the cut stem (17.67), per cent stem bending (38.30) and minimum number of CFU (42.26×10-6) for pulsing solution. The results show that sucrose could increase vase life in combination with 8-HQC.
