Ethylene-mediated abscission and senescence of floral organs cause serious economic postharvest losses in waxflower (Chamelaucium spp.). The efficacy of new compounds in modulating floral organs abscission and vase life was investigated. Amongst different compounds tested, trans-cinnamaldehyde, 1H-cyclopropa[b]naphthalene, 1H-cyclopropabenzene or 1-hexylcyclopropene fumigation (1 μM) were effective in inhibiting abscission of floral organs in different waxflowers genotypes. trans-Cinnamaldehyde or 1-hexylcyclopropene in combination with different vase solutions were effective in extending flower and leaf vase life of waxflower.

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 ...
