Abstract—This experiment was carried out to investigate the effect of potassium aluminum sulfate (Alum) on vase life of Sampaguita (Jasminum sambac) flowers. Flowers were sprayed with potassium aluminum sulfate solutions (0, 0.5 g/l, 1.0 g/l, and 1.5g./l) until the end of vase life as a standard treatment and tap water was used as control treatment. Each treatment was comprised by 3 groups, which were subjected to different spraying frequency (once a day, twice/day and three times a day). Treatments with Potassium Aluminum sulfate prolong the vase life of flowers. Final weight is significantly higher in group 2-all treatments (0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 gram/liter Potassium Aluminum Sulfate) sprayed twice a day compared with other treatments and groups. Potassium Aluminum sulfate (0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 gram/liter), sprayed twice /day resulted in a higher diffusion of solution until the end of the vase life.
