The Role of Calcium and Boron in Rose Development and Petal Blackening


In this report we report some data from a short hydroponic study where we intended to monitor the uptake of calcium and other ions in rose plants, as well as determine the partitioning (distribution) of mineral elements along the various organs in flowering shoots, including the petals. Unfortunately we lost most of our nutrient solution samples due to a regrettable storage accident, and thus we will be reporting only on the nutrient analyses done in the tissues. Given this unfortunate accident we were forced to request a no-cost, six-month extension period to our project (until December 2007), to run another hydroponic study that hopefully will yield good calcium uptake data.
