Abstract:
An experiment entitled “Optimization of media for cut flower production in anthurium cv. Tropical Red” was conducted at Hi - Tech Unit, College of Horticulture, Dapoli (M.S.) with seven treatment combinations in Randomized Block Design. The treatments comprised of different growing media viz., T1- coconut husk + charcoal (3:1), T2- sand+ FYM+ coconut husk + brick pieces + charcoal (1:1:1:1:1), T3- cocopeat + coconut husk + brick, pieces + charcoal (1:1:1:1), T4- cocopeat + wood shavings +FYM+ brick pieces + charcoal (2:1:1:1:1), T5- Brick pieces + wood shavings + sand+ FYM+ coconut husk + charcoal (1:1:1:1:1:1), T6- Saw dust+ wood shavings + sand+ FYM+ brick pieces + charcoal (2:1:1:1:1:1), T7- Sand+ cowdung clumps+ coconut husk + wood shaving+ charcoal+ earthen crocks+ brick pieces+ cocopeat (2:1:2:1:0.5:0.5:1:1). The results revealed that, significantly maximum survival percentage (%), plant height, number of leaves per plant, length of leaf, breadth of leaf, leaf area, number of suckers, chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and total chlorophyll was registered in treatment T2 i.e. Sand+ FYM+ coconut husk + brick pieces + charcoal (1:1:1:1:1) which was followed by T5 i.e. Brick pieces + wood shavings + Sand+ FYM+ coconut husk + charcoal (1:1:1:1:1:1).
