Abstract:

The present experiment on effect of holding solution for improving vase life of gerbera was carried out during December, 2019 at Floriculture and Landscaping Laboratory, College of Horticulture, VCSG, Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Bharsar, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. The experiment consists of seven treatments which were replicated three times in Completely Randomized Design. The results of investigation revealed that the holded treatment applied with 4% Sucrose + 300 ppm 8- HQC (T4) recorded maximum holding solution uptake (29.47 ml), vase life (17.49 days), per cent increase in flower diameter (19.22 cm), minimum per cent decrease weight of cut stem (5.59) and stem bending (26.85) was recorded with treatment T4 consists of 4% Sucrose + 300 ppm 8- HQC respectively. Which have contributed to increased vase life of cut gerbera flower.
