Abstract: 
In order to study the effect of some chemical treatments on vase life and some other quality attributes of lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflora Mariachii. cv. Blue) cut flowers, a study was done on the basis of a completely randomized design while applying chemical treatments. Cut flowers of lisianthus were kept in pots containing chemical solutions of aluminum sulfate, 8-hydroxyquinoline citrate, ethanol, cobalt chloride, and only disttiled water as control. To all treatments, except control, 2.5% sucrose was aded. Pots were then placed in chambers of 25°C ambient temperatures. Some qualitative and quantitative attributes such as: vase life, fresh weight, ethylene production rate, water uptake, etc were measured and analyzed statistically. The vase life of cut flowers was completed when the petals or stem below the flower had lost turgidity. Results indicated that copper sulfate at 100 ppm concentrations along with 2.5% sucrose most positively effects the vase life and preserving quality of lisianthus cut flowers (p £%1).
