Different growing conditions with temperature and sunlight variation
could vary in flower growth and quality of marigold. Plant growth and flowering
characteristics are compared in three different conditions viz. plastic house,
shade house and open field. Three varieties of marigold viz. Marvel Yellow,
Marvel Orange and Marvel Garland with similar cultural practices were grown and
observed. Each variety with 6 replications was grown in three different growing
conditions. Plant height, leaves formation, length of leaves, number of days to
flower, number of flowers per plant and post harvest analysis were recorded.
Plant growth characteristics followed by flowering behavior were found
significantly better in plants grown under plastic house. During post harvest
experiment Marvel Garland variety grown under plastic house with wet post
harvest treatment was found significantly better compared to other conditions.
