Pengaruh Transportasi, kultivar Anggrek Pot terhadap Kesegaran Bunga Selama Peragaan pada Berbagai Kondisi Ruangan


Experiment was conducted to find out the self-live of flowered potted Dendrobium at several rooms conditions with or without transportation treatment.The experiment was done at Indonesian Ornamental Crops Research Institute from July 1998-April 1999. Three Dendrobium cultivars (Candy Strip, Bunjet Pink and Kyomeisabin) as potted plant were bought from farmers orchid at Cibubur, Bogor, West Java. Flowering Dendrobium with potted plant used in this experiment was at first or second flowering. Potted plants was tranported from Jakarta-Bandung vice versa for about 10 hours (+308.3 km). A completely randomized design with 3 replications was used. The results showed that without and with transportation potted plant Dendrobium Candy Strip placed in screenhouse of 55% lighting, indicated shelf life of 48.3 and 43.9 days, with first flowers wilting and 100% flower opening at 28.0 and 24.2 days and 24.7 and 17.9 days, respectively. This research results wereusefull to maintain the quality and shelf-life during transportation so that their marketing distribution can be extended.
