In this study, the effect of copper nanoparticles on vase life and postharvest quality of cut chrysanthemum was examined. This study carried out based on completely randomized design with 4 levels of copper nanoparticles (0, 5, 10 and 20 mg l-1) in 3 replications and 12 plots. Traits such as vase life, total chlorophyll, bacterial counts in vase solution and dry matter were measured. According to the results, pretreatment with 5 mg l-1 of copper nanoparticles increased the vase life of cut flowers of chrysanthemum 'White' (12.33 days) compared to control (4.33 days).
