The current study was conducted to investigate the effect of 24-hour short treatment of benzyl adenine (zero and 0.1 mM) and salicylic acid (zero, 0.001, 0.01, 0.1 and 1.0 mM) on the vase life of Lily cv. Fangio. The measured traits were leaf fresh weight (on zero, first, third, and seventh days), the contents of anthocyanin, flavonoids, carotenoids, chlorophylls a, b and total (on zero and seventh day) and vase life. Results showed that maximum vase life was obtained in 1.0 mM salicylic acid and zero benzyl adenine. In addition, the leaf fresh weight was increased by 9.67% in 1.0 mM salicylic acid and 0.1 mM benzyl adenine from the first to the seventh day after treatment. The values of photosynthetic pigments (chlorophylls a, b and total, and carotenoids) remained constant in 0.1 mM benzyl adenine and 0.1 mM salicylic acid treatment during this period. The highest increase of anthocyanin content was observed in the 0.001 mM salicylic acid and no benzyl adenine treatment, as compared to control. The highest flavonoid content was observed in zero mM salicylic acid and 0.1 mM benzyl adenine, which was significantly increased during the first to the seventh days after treatment. In conclusion, 1.0 mM salicylic acid treatment is recommended to increase the vase life of Lily cv. Fangio
