  Short postharvest vase life is one of the most important problems on the cut flowers. The study was conducted to investigate the effect of salicylic acid at different concentrations on carnation flower longevity, Aminocyclopropanecarboxylate oxidase (ACC-oxidase, ACO) activity and SOD activity vase solution of cut flowers carnation in laboratory condition. The treatments were distilled water, salicylic acid (0,1.5, 2.5, 3.5 mM) and glutamine (0, 2 and 4 mM). Results show that salicylic acid 2.5 mM followed by glutamine 4 mM is more effective than salicylic acid 1.5, 3.5 and 4.5 mM alone in improving the vase life of cut carnation flowers. The percent of wilting was minimized as a result of using this combined treatment. However, the percent of wilting increased with the increase in concentrations of salicylic acid. 2.5 mM salicylic acid+4 mM glutamine retarded the chlorophyll as well as carbohydrate degradation during the postharvest life. The results showed that salicylic acid and glutamine in preservative mixture increased the SOD activity of cut flowers and reduced ACC-xidase activity, free proline accumulation, number of bacterial on vase solution, as compared to control.

  Short postharvest vase life is one of the most important problems on the cut flowers. In this study we investigated the effect of some essential oils, citric acid, malic aid and nickel in extending the vase-life of lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflorum Mariachii. cv. Blue) flowers. The treatments were distilled water, nickel (0, 1 and 2 mM), essential oils of thyme (Thymus vulgaris) (50, 100 and 150 mg L-1), citric acid (0, 100 and 150 mg L-1) and malic aid (0, 1.5 and 2.5 mM). Results showed that solution containing 2 mM nickel+2.5 mM malic acid and 150 mg L-1 essential oils of Thyme could increase flower longevity as compared to control. The results also revealed that malic acid and nickel treatments increased cut-flower water absorption while decreasing ACC-oxidase (Aminocyclopropanecarboxylate oxidase) activity and premeability together with total delay of senescence and peroxidation of lipids. Chlorophyll content and ACC-oxidase activity in the cut flower in solution containing citric acid and essential oils were not significantly different than control. It is suggested the application of nickel, essential oils of Thyme and malic aid in preservative solutions for Lisianthus flowers maintained the vase life of flowers for a longer period.

  Short postharvest vase life is one of the most important problems on the cut flowers. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of silicon, nickel and acetylsalicylic acid and their interaction on extending the vase life, total chlorophyll content, ACC-oxidase (Aminocyclopropanecarboxylate oxidase, ACO) activity, anthocyanin leakage, membrane stability and malondialdehyde (MDA) content of Cut rose flowers. The treatments were distilled water, silicon (0, 1.5, 2.5 mM), acetylsalicylic acid (0, 1,1.5 mM) and nickel (0, 1, 2 mM). Vase life in solution containing 1.5 mM silicon and 1 mM acetylsalicylic acid didn’t have significant difference than control. The results showed that silicon, acetylsalicylic acid and nickel treatments increased cut flower water absorption, fresh weight and vase life, while decreasing malondialdehyde content, ACC-oxidase activity and membrane premeability together with total delay of senescence and peroxidation of lipids. Our results suggest the application of silicon, acetylsalicylic acid and nickel in preservative solutions for rose flowers maintained the vase life of flowers for a longer period.
