Begonia albopicta, B. cucullata var. cucullata, B. echinosepala var. elongatifolia, B. holtonis, B. foliosa var. miniata and B. 'Fuchsifoliosa' are conserved at the Ornamental Plant Germplasm Center (OPGC), in Columbus Ohio as a source of germplasm for breeders and researchers. No cultural information for these species is available. Our objective was to evaluate the response of the above mentioned species to different fertilizer concentrations and substrate pH levels. Rooted cuttings were…

Influence of substrate pH on the growth and flowering of Mandevilla Lindl. Sundaville® ‘Pretty Red’

The study shows that flowers appeared after more than six months irrespective of soil conditions, and the diameter of a single flower remained the same regardless of the substrate pH.

Influence of FeEDDS, FeEDTA, FeDTPA, FeEDDHA, and FeSO4 on Marigold Growth and Nutrition, and Substrate and Runoff Chemistry

The objectives of the study were to determine effects of iron (Fe) source on plant growth, plant nutrition, substrate chemistry, and runoff chemistry. Iron source (FS) treatments consisted of

This study was conducted to evaluate the growth and flowering of Begonia boliviensis A. DC. ‘Bonfire’ when grown in the growing medium mixed with pellets from biobased plastic resins containing



Effect of Fertilizer Concentration on Growth of Double Impatiens

Double impatiens (Impatiens wallerana Hook.) ‘Blackberry Ice’ (variegated-leaf) and ‘Purple Magic’ (green-leaf) were grown on flood benches and irrigated with 50, 100, 200, or 300 mg·L–1 (ppm) N to

Iron toxicity to fen plant species

The toxicity of ferrous iron to seedlings of 44 fen plant species was examined using 2-week screening experiments in solution culture. These were found to be more practicable than alternative methods

Effect of Fertilizer Rate on Growth of Fibrous-rooted Begonia

Information regarding fertilization of Begonia × semperflorens-cultorum, Hort. (fibrous-rooted begonia) is sparse and does not provide sufficient parameters for plant production (1-3). The purpose

Leaching losses of nutrients and yield and nutrient uptake by container‐grown begonia as affected by lime and fertiliser applications to a peat medium

The effect of increased lime applications and one rate of soluble basal fertiliser on leaching losses of NH4-N, NO3-N, P, Ca, Mg and K from peat in containers was studied in the presence or absence

Effects of Limestone and Irrigation Level on Salt Levels and pH in Potting Media

Ground limestone (CaCO3) was applied at 0, 25, 50, 75, or 100 g/9.5-liter pot using a 1 peat : 1 perlite : 1 vermiculite (by volume) medium having an initial pH of 4.52 and an electrical
