Abstract An ethylene permeation system was tested in a study of flower abscission of Verticordia nitens (Lindley) Endl. Various concentrations of ethylene in air were generated by passing air, at a flow rate of 2 L/min, through chambers containing various lengths of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tubing pressurised (50 kPa) with ethylene. Ethylene permeating through lengths of PVC tubing of 1.5, 15, 150, and 1500 cm (8 mm internal diameter, 1.5 mm wall thickness) gave ethylene concentrations in the outflow airstreams of 0.12, 0.99, 7.8, and 100 muL/L, respectively. Increasing the ethylene pressure in 150-cm-long tubing linearly increased the permeation of ethylene (0.07 muL/L. kPa).
