Olive-mill wastes compost as growing medium component for the production of poinsettia

, : Olive-mill wastes compost as growing medium component for the production of poinsettia. Scientia Horticulturae 102(2): 167-175

The research work was conducted in order to investigate the possibility of using olive-mill wastes compost (OWC) in the production of ornamentals replacing part of the peat in the growing medium. Rooted cuttings of Euphorbia pulcherrima Peterstar white were grown in media containing OWC, peat and perlite in various ratios, and their vegetative growth, root growth and flowering was determined. A medium of 1 peat:1 perlite (by volume) was used as control.
