Abstract: Postharvest preservation is essential to maintain the peculiar features, beauty and longevity of flower stalks. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the postharvest durability, based on the visual quality and fresh weight of flower stalks of Heliconia psittacorum (with three-color variations) and of H. densiflora, in a cold chamber at three temperatures (14 ºC, 18 ºC and 22 ºC) and in the laboratory (control treatment at 26 ºC). A completely randomized design with four replications and five stems per plot… Show more

“…Data is comparable with Heliconia psittacorum x H. spathocircinata cv. Golden Torch (Amaral et al, 2015;Sardinha et al, 2019), and higher than H. psittacorum and H. densiflora (Silva et al, 2019). The postharvest longevity is one of the leading characteristics of cut flowers that should be considered as pre-requisite for flower quality and selling achievement (Folha et al, 2016).…”

“…Regarding the storage topic, the contributions recommend a temperature that ranges from 10 to 19 ºC, ideal for storing heliconia flower stems for up to eight days on average (Costa et al, 2011a; Costa et al, 2011b; Darras, 2019;Silva et al, 2019). Other authors recommend an in-depth study that uses techniques to confirm or reject the sensitivity of heliconia to ethylene (Bañuelos- Hernández et al, 2016).…”
