. Dipping the lower portion of flower stems in the solution containing sugar and germicides before packaging and transportation was to supply carbohydrate and prevented the plugging of flower stems by microbial growth. Furthermore, in was prolonged the periode of flowers vaselife and kept flower quality af- ter transportation. The objective of the study was to find out both of proper pulsing solution, packaging and transporta- tion to keep the prime quality of flower cut Rose c.v. Kiss. The flowers were harvested from the field when the flowers was at 0-10% bud opening stages and then they were pulsed with solution of AgNO3 20 ppm + sugar 5% + citric acid 320 ppm for 12 hours. Each the flower was placed in the vials containing aquades; holding solution) and put them in the boxes (78 x 20 x 8 cm) with capacity 20 inflorescences. All treated cut flowers were transported for 20 hours with carchamber with temperature of 5o-10oC and 27o-30oC. The experiment was arranged on a completely randomized de- sign with three replications. The results indicated that wet packaging with aquades during 20 hours transportation was the best treament which prolonged vaselife until 9 days and kept the enflorescence up to 100% bud opening. By ap- plying those treatment, the periode of flowers vaselife could be extended and quality after transportation could be maintained.
