Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out to different harvesting stage on maximum buds opening and longer vase-life of gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflorus L.) flower cv. Nova Lux. The spikes were harvested at 4 stages namely tight bud stage, basal pair opened bud stage, half opened bud stage and fully opened bud stage. The maximum vase-life of gladiolus cv. Nova Lux was found with continuous increase in spike length, absorption of vase solution first increase thereafter decreased and continuous florets opening, maximum spike weight and moderate florets drooping could be get, when gladiolus spikes were harvested at basal pair opened bud stage and put into vase solution containing only distilled water kept at ambient temperature in laboratory of Department of Horticulture.
