Postproduction Evaluation of Non-Rooting Room Bulbs

Subject:

Postproduction Evaluation of Non-Rooting Room Bulbs

Abstract:

The use of forced bulbs as indoor flowering potted plants has increased markedly over the past 20 years. Proper postproduction handling of these plants is imperative to maximize quality and longevity for the consumer. Our research identified the proper stages of development to market and optimum transport conditions for several species and cultivars of forced bulbs. Research was also conducted to determine optimal light and temperature conditions in the consumer environment to maximize postproduction quality and longevity.
