Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at College of Horticulture, Dapoli to study the effect of holding solution on post harvest life of anthurium cv. Tropical Red with ten treatments in Completely Randomised Design. The treatment comprised of different holding solutions viz., T1- Tapwater, T2- Tapwater + Bavistin 0.2%, T3- Distilled water, T4- 8 HQC 200ppm, T5- 8 HQC 400ppm, T6- BA 25 ppm, T7- BA 50 ppm, T8- Triadimefon 30 ppm, T9- AgNO3 10 ppm, T10- AgNO3 20 ppm. The results revealed that, significantly maximum uptake of vase solution, days to spadix necrosis initiation, days to spathe blueing initiation, days to gloss loss/fading, vase life of inflorescence and minimum physiological loss in weight and final volume of holding solution was recorded in treatment BA 25 ppm.
