ABSTRACT
In this experiment, Temporary treatments (pulsing) with distilled water or calcium chloride, 4% + sucrose 3% and permanent treatment with medical extract of Stevia and thyme (at 0.1 and 0. 2 mg/liter of fresh weight changes), flower diameter, bent neck flowers, amount of carotenoid pigments in petals and Gerbera vase life were studied. Thyme (0.2 mg/ liter) in pulsing with distilled water treatment showed the best results for preventing more weight loss in the extract of medicine plant. For reduction of diameter of the flower and the curvature of the flower's neck, thyme (0.1 mg/liter) in pulsing with calcium chloride + sucrose achieved the best result. The longest vase life got because of treating the flower with thyme 1(0.1 mg/liter) in pulsing of water distilled treatment comparing with control treatment.
