The investigation was carried out to know the influence of diffferent chemicals on postharvest life of anthurium. Holding of anthurium flowers in solution having 3 per cent sucrose + 250 ppm cobalt chloride resulted in increased water uptake (5.49 g/flower), water loss (5.19 g/flower), fresh weight (102.06 %), vase life (21.67days), low microbial count (13.63 × 10-6CFU) and the benefits (6.46'/flower) when compared to that of control.
