Determine flower vaselife of White Sim carnations over a year
The primary objective of this experiment was to determine flower vaselife of White Sim carnations each month for a 1-year period (extended to 13 months). Flowers were obtained from three growers' locations, and kept as separate experiments, since each green house was considered to be climatically different. Another objective of the experiment was to test the value of over night pre-treatments by the producer, if nothing else was done in the marketing system, as compared with adding a floral preservative in the vaselife determination.
