Calla Lily Growth and Development Under Saline Irrigation

  title={Calla Lily Growth and Development Under Saline Irrigation},
  author={Maren E Veatch-Blohm and Lindsay M. Morningstar},
Salinity is a problem for crop production worldwide, which can affect not only the yield of ornamental plants, but also their quality. Calla lilies (Zantedeschia K. Koch) are a popular cut flower and landscape plant. In this study we examined how salinity applied either preor post-emergence altered shoot growth and flower production compared with standard growth conditions. Salinity applied post-emergence did not significantly affect shoot growth in either the 25or 50-mM NaCl treatments…

Development changes in calla lily plants due to salt stress
High concentrations of NaCl affect the development of calla lily, indicating that this species is susceptible to salt stress.
A Cut Flower Cultivation under Saline Conditions: C. morifolium Ramat ‘Bacardi’
Chrysanthemum which belongs to Asteraceae is one of the most important ornamental plants in the world. Chrysanthemum morifolium Ramat ‘Bacardi’, a species of this genus, is a very important cut
Response of Ornithogalum saundersiae Bak. to salinity stress.
Most of the studies on the effects of salinity str e s are conducted on ornamental bedding plants and perennials but little is known o n fl wer bulbs response to this stress factor. Ornithogalum
Relationship between salinity stress and ion uptake of hyacinth (Hyacinthus orientalis)
This study showed that measuring of Na+ concentrations and calculating the ratios of K+/Na+ and Ca+2/Na+, in leaf tissue are reliable physiological parameters for predicting salt damage of hyacinth plant.
Effects of Sodium Chloride on Growth and Mineral Nutrition of Purpletop Vervain
There is a rising demand for salt-tolerant species for landscaping. Purpletop vervain is an excellent landscape plant for gardens and parks, with fragrant lavender to rosepurple flowers. However,
Grazing of Herbivories Affecting Plant Growth: A Case Study of Water Buffaloes Grazing on Red Indian Water Lily at Thale Noi Wildlife Sanctuary, Southern Thailand
In this study, we investigated how buffaloes grazing on water lily influenced water lily leaf at Thale Noi Wildlife Sanctuary, southern Thailand. We estimated water buffalo population size, and
Assessing Genetic Diversity and Population Differentiation of Colored Calla Lily (Zantedeschia Hybrid) for an Efficient Breeding Program
To provide a basis for utilizing and improving resources in breeding programs, a total of 117 accessions of colored calla lily (Zantedeschia hybrid), collected from New Zealand, the Netherlands and the United States, were genotyped using 31 transferable expressed sequence tags-simple sequence repeats (EST-SSR) markers from the white callaLily.


Salt tolerance of flower crops grown in soilless culture
Abstract Gerbera, carnation, rose, aster, bouvardia, and lily were grown in a hydroponic system at different levels of salinity. The EC and sodium (Na) and chloride (Cl) concentrations maintained in
Growth and pigment content of wheat as influenced by the combined effects of salinity and growth regulators
The presoaking of grains in NaCl at 33 mM + IAA or 66 mM + kinetin induced a marked increase in the pigment content of the wheat flag leaf particularly at the early stages of growth.
Quality of the cutflowers was found to be a good parameter for determination of the response of the cultivar under investigation under salt stress conditions and could be used in the determination of tolerance of the rose genotypes.
Physiological and biochemical responses of tomato microshoots to induced salinity stress with associated ethylene accumulation
The results indicate that the increase in ethylene under salinity stress is not the primary factor contributing to salinity’s deleterious effect on tomato plant growth and physiology.
Differential growth of some grapevine varieties in Syria in response to salt in vitro
Growth sensitivity of four local grapevine varieties, Ashlamesh, Helwani, Kassofee, and Khoudeiry, were evaluated for salt and the presence of NaCl at 80 mM or higher concentrations decreased the chlorophyll content androot number of all varieties, while 30 mM NaCl increased root number of Kassofec.
