Phalaenopsis orchids have high economic value in the floriculture industry hybridization or cross-pollination in the breeding program have proven to be very reliable techniques for the production. Phalaenopsis is known as the moth orchid and is extremely popular among beginning growers the genus dendrobium contains about 1,200 species of orchids and is the classic epiphyte of orchids oncidiums are characterized by column wings and a callus at the lip of the flower. Based on the study of orchid flowering regulation, various predominating pathways prevail for different species in phalaenopsis orchids for example, autonomous, temperature (cool or ambient temperature) or hormone (cytokinin) pathways may play an important role for p aphrodite subsp formosana. Orchids are among the most diverse of the flowering plant families, with over 800 described genera and 25,000 species orchids are prized for their beautiful long lasting flowers exhibiting an incredible range of diversity in size, shape and colour.
Phalaenopsis are low light orchids they will grow and flower reliably in natural or artificial light as low as 300-500 foot-candles(fc) however, 1000 to 1500 fc is the perferred level to test for the correct light level, place your hand between the source and the phal. Abstract phalaenopsis orchids have high economic value in the floriculture industry hybridization or cross-pollination in the breeding program have proven to be very reliable techniques for the production of a wide range of successful cultivars with attractive combinations of spray length, bud number, flower color and type, fragrance, seasonality, and compactness. The phalaenopsis orchid is a plant with monopodial (single stem) type of growth stiff green leaves 5 - 65 cm (2 - 26 in) in length (depending on the variety) sprout from a short stem the stem is practically invisible, hidden among the leaf bases.

Many of you have written asking for instructions on how to do stem propagation with your orchids in response to your requests, i will give you step-by-step directions provided by mr gary gorrange of alta canyon orchids, one of the best phalaenopsis hybridizers i know. Keiki's are a great way to propagate orchids without needing to pollinate orchids and grow orchid seedlings water the parent plant on the day before you plan to remove the keiki then cut its stem beneath the roots and plant it in a pot of fine orchid bark, keeping its roots near the surface.
Keikis, or baby plants, grow on the canes or flower spikes of some orchid species, such as dendrobium, epidendrum, and phalaenopsis orchidshowever, not all orchids produce keikis. Keikis for propagating orchids many orchids sometimes produce keikis, or small plantlets, either on their flower stems or along the canes of their pseudobulbsonce they are mature enough, you can cut these off and pot them up to propagate your orchid. Phalaenopsis cultivars, based on reliably controlling the time of spiking when a potentially flowering stem emerges from a leaf axis phalaenopsis orchid grow at various light intensity, photoperiod or fertilizer condition, with only slight changes in spiking induction (wang and hsu, 1994 lin and lee, 1998.
In conclusion, efficient propagation protocols for the orchid phalaenopsis violacea has been established which enables the demand for the orchid species to be fulfilled using the optimised selected cytokinin concentration. Orchid keikis are baby plants, or offshoots, of the mother plant and an easy method of propagation for some orchid varieties propagating orchid keikis keikis are a good way to start new plants from the following varieties. All media were adjusted to ph 53 prior to auto- from vegetative buds of the flower stalks of phalaenopsis after eight claving at 12 1 oc for 20 min cultures were incubated weeks of culture at 2341 l°c in the light at about 12 pmol rn-s-l with cytokinin number of induction average number of a 12-h photoperiod. How to clone orchids using keiki paste uk stock here - keiki paste is a cytokinin hormone which induces growth in the node of a phalaenopsis inflorescence it should not be confused with paste or powder containing auxins, which are used to force the production of roots. Usually, the most common orchids on your windowsill are phalaenopsis hybrid orchids (moth orchids) they have beautiful butterfly-shaped long lasting flowers, and there are countless hybrids with different flower shape, color, texture, and even there are some cultivars with variegated leaves.
Auxin's capacity to regulate aspects of plant development has been well characterized in model plant systems in contrast, orchids have received considerably less attention, but the realization that many orchid species are endangered has led to culture-based propagation studies which have unveiled. Potting a keiki certain orchids can produce adventitious growths on vegetative parts of the plant phalaenopsis, vanda, dendrobium and catasetum are a few of the better-known orchid genera that can be easily propagated by removing keikis (hawaiian word for baby) at the right time. I just want to share my experiment on trying to propagate my phalaenopsis orchids by cuttings if you have any questions pls comment down below. 1 keiki production on phalaenopsis orchid flower spikes the propagation of phalaenopsis keikis is the easiest application for the use of plant hormones, because the defense mechanism of the plant is most easily accessible.
How are orchids propagated like most plants, orchids are able to reproduce themselves in two different ways the one way sexually by seed, and the other asexually by vegetative propagation for the beginner, vegetative propagation is commonly used to build up one's orchid collection.
