This report provides an understanding of how root binding of waxflower root systems can be minimised, particularly in new varieties. This information will be of benefit to growers of waxflower in Australia, as it provides propagation methods and post propagation planting methods that are directly applicable for use in nurseries and on farms. The outcome of the research will be the provision of quality waxflower plants which are better equipped to utilise water and fertilisers through healthier root systems. Production from these plants will benefit processors and exporters of waxflower, by providing them with better quality product i.e. longer stem length and more profuse flowering displays and higher yields. This research should benefit the whole of the waxflower industry, through longer lasting, higher yielding plants with increased sales of premium stems and
increased profitability.
