Yellow: nice for flowers, not for leaves
With some cut flowers, the leaves turn yellow quicker than the flower wilts - not a beautiful sight! A number of factors influence the leaf yellowing, such as ethylene and light. Even when flowers are in a vase at the consumer's, leaf yellowing can still occur.
Some flowers are more susceptible to leaf yellowing than others. Sensitive flowers include alstroemeria, lily, tulip and euphorbia. Sometimes also the leaves of chrysanthemum, solidago and even roses can turn yellow.
This can easily be prevented by using Chrysal products. Chrysal BVB, a post-harvest treatment for bulb flowers, has good results and can be used at the grower. Florists should provide a sachet Chrysal Clear Bulbosus with bouquets containing alstroemeria, tulip and lily to give their customers maximum quality at home.
