Languages of publication
Leucocoryne coquimbensis F.Phil. ex Phil. is an attractive bulb plant which naturally occurs in Chile. It has ornamental blue or violet fragrant flowers. No information has been available on the use of plant growth retardants in the cultivation of L. coquimbensis as potted plant. The objectives of this study were to determine the effect of flurprimidol on plant growth and flowering of L. coquimbensis grown in pots in the greenhouse. In summary, it can be concluded that L. coquimbensis can be cultivated as an attractive pot plant. The use of flurprimidol modifies the appearance of L. coquimbensis, the flowering time and the quality of flowers. We recommend for producing potted plants the application of Topflor 0.1% as foliar spray when the plants was 3 cm tall.
