The postharvest life of cut Eustoma grandiflorum flowers is limited by poor bud opening and bent neck in open flowers. Vase solutions containing up to 6% sucrose or glucose improved the quality and vase life of the flowers. The additional carbohydrate improved petal color, increased bud opening, strengthened pedicels, and extended overall inflorescence(More)
The respiration of cut flowers of gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii H. Bolus ex Hook.f. 'Vesuvio') and sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) increased exponentially with increasing storage temperature. Poststorage vase life and negatively gravitropic bending of the neck of the flowers were both strongly affected by simulated transport at higher temperatures. Vase life(More)
The respiration of cut flowers of rose (Rosa hybrida L. ‘First Red’) and gypsophila (Gypsophila paniculata L. ‘Bristol Fairy’) increased exponentially with increasing respiration, with a Q10 value between 0 and 10°C of 3 for both flowers. The vase life of the flowers was negatively affected by simulated transport at higher temperatures whereas dry storage(More)
