The subsequent effct of silicon on physiological and biochemical parameters of Polygonatum multiflorum (L.) All. ‘Variegatum’ cut shoots

Abstract: The aim of the undertaken research was to establish the subsequent effect of silicon, which is the component in Actisil Hydro Plus preparation, and the place of cultivation on the postharvest quality of Solomon’s Seal (Polygonatum multiflorum ‘Variegatum’). Plants were cultivated directly in the field or in an unheated foil tunnel. The preparation was used as a sixfold spray in three concentrations: 0.2, 0.3 and 0.4% during the plants vegetation, at weekly intervals. The control were plants sprayed with distilled water. Leafy shoots were cut at the moment of becoming morphologically mature and placed in distilled water in a controlled thermal-lightning conditions: temperature was 21/18ºC (day/night) and photoperiod of 12 h light/12 h darkness. The condition of cytoplasmic membrane was evaluated with the use of analysis of electrolyte leakage and determining the level of peroxidation of membrane lipids. The analyses of assimilation pigments (chlorophyll a + b) and proline content, the relative water content as well as postharvest longevity were established. Leafy shoots of P. multiflorum cultivated in an unheated tunnel, regardless of the spray with Actisil Hydro Plus, characterized with longer lasting decorative value. The lowest proline content in tissues after 30 days were observed in leaves obtained from plants cultivated in foil tunnel and sprayed with Actisil Hydro Plus in concentration of 0.2 and 0.3%. During the analysis conducted 30 days after starting the experiment, the most effective stop of membrane lipids peroxidation was observed in shoots obtained from plants cultivated in foil tunnel and sprayed with Actisil in concentration of 0.2%. Cultivation of P. multiflorum in foil tunnel and spray with preparation in concentration of 0.3% inhibited assimilation pigments degradation the most effectively.
