1. Simpson, Scott H. Deficit Irrigation of Mixed Landscapes Based on Turfgrass Coverage and Reference Evapotranspiration.

Degree: MS, Horticultural Science - Environmental Horticulture, 2012, University of Florida

Irrigation of landscapes is responsible for more than half of water consumed by residential homeowners. The objectives of the research presented here were to test two hypotheses. First, irrigation frequency based on turfgrass water needs is sufficient for the irrigation of woody shrubs and trees within a mixed landscape. Second, warm season St Augustine turfgrass can maintain aesthetically pleasing appearance at irrigation volumes and frequencies less than predicted by reference evapotranspiration. Advisors/Committee Members: Beeson, Richard C (committee chair), Henny, Richard J (committee member).

2. Mcbride, Kaitlyn M. The Effect of Cultural Practices on Growth, Flowering and Rooting of Adenium obseum.

Degree: MS, Horticultural Science - Environmental Horticulture, 2012, University of Florida

Light and nutritional levels affected growth, flowering and visual quality of containerized Adenium obesum ‘Ice Pink’ and ‘Red’. Plants were grown in full sun, 30% or 50% shade in 1.25 L pots and top-dressed with slow release fertilizer at 2, 4 or 6 grams of fertilizer per liter of soil volume. After 16 weeks, both cultivars produced the best growth, flowering and quality when fertilized with 6 grams/L rate under 30% shade. A second experiment with cultivar Red confirmed the previous results. Greenhouse studies with ‘Red’ grown in 1.25 L and 3.0 L pots with four fertilizer rates (2, 4, 6, or 8 grams/L) showed the largest, most floriferous and best quality plants after 20 weeks when fertilizer rate was 6 or 8 grams/L for plants in both 1.25 L and 3.0 L pots. Plants in 3.0 L pots produced significantly higher top and root dry weights than those in 1.25 L pots. Propagation tests using Adenium obesum ‘Ice Pink’ and ‘Red’ vegetative tip cuttings showed best rooting occurred in cuttings treated with 8000 mg/L IBA or a combination of 8000 mg/L IBA plus 4000 mg/L NAA.
