Effect of substrate volume on the growth and flowering of Cyclamen persicum Mill. ‘Canto F1 Scarlet’ from midi group
Summary.

The subject of the studies was the effect of substrate volume on the growth and flowering of Cyclamen persicum Mill. ‘Canto F1 Scarlet’. Experiment was carried out in 2005 and 2006, in two cycles lasting from May 6 to November 20. In the experiment, pots were used with substrate volumes of 270 cm3, 340 cm3, 500 cm3 and 721 cm3. Seedling were planted on the 19th day into sphagnum peat with pH 6.0 enriched with fertilizer of Hydrocote 3-4 M type in the dose of 3 g/dm3. Substrate volume did not exert any effect on the plant height, plant diameter, tuber diameter and on the earliness of cyclamen flowering. Cyclamens grown in a greater amount of substrate created a bigger mass and they flowered more abundantly.

 

Key words: substrate volume, Cyclamen persicum, plant growth, flowering
