Factors Controlling Vase Life of Waxflowers (Chamelaucium Desf. Varieties and Hybrids)
MetadataShow full item record
Factors affecting vase life of Chamelaucium Desf. hybrids and hybrids between Chamelaucium and Verticordia Desf. were studied. Both genotype and cultivar determined the length of vase life of waxflowers. The use of sucrose or other sugar types and concentrations supplemented with 8-hydroxyquniline sulphate and/or silver thiosulphate extended the vase life of waxflowers cultivars depending on genotype. Flowers strongly competed with leaves for carbohydrates and water, affecting the vase life of waxflowers cultivars.

Factors affecting variation in the vase life response of waxflower cultivars (Myrtaceae: Chamelaucium Desf. and Verticordia spp. Desf.) tested under various vase solutionsDung, C.; Seaton, K.; Singh, Zora (2016)The effects of genotype and vase solutions on the vase lives of waxflower cultivars were studied. The vase life of 16 cultivars derived from different genetic backgrounds showed a variation. The vase life of Chamelaucium ...
Influence of type and concentration of sugars, supplemented with 8-hydroxyquinoline sulphate, on the vase life of waxflowerDung, C.; Seaton, K.; Singh, Zora (2017)A study was conducted to test the effect of 58.5 mM maltose, glucose, fructose, galactose and sucrose, and sucrose concentrations of 14.6, 29.2, 58.5 and 117.0 mM supplemented with 200 mg L-1 8-hydroxyquinoline sulphate ...
