Abstract :
Studies were conducted to observe the effect of different bulb size on growth, flowering and bulbil production of tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa L. cv. Single) under agro-ecological conditions of Faisalabad during 2005-06 so as to explore the best bulb size for the best quality flower spikes production as well as maximum bulbils production. It was observed that large bulb size resulted in vigorous growth, maximum yield and more number of bulbils as compared to small and medium sized bulbs. It was concluded that large sized bulbs with 3 – 4 cm diameter are best for planting of tuberose
