Default Re: in vitro first sprout

orchid in vitro propagation-my successful trial with hand pollination of cross between phalaenopsis bellina x phalaenopsis cornu cervi. It took about 9 months for the seed pods to ripe but uncrack. I only need to sterilise the outer skin by dipping in ethanol, and flame over the burner.

formation of protocorms


2 months later after replating to several jars.

how do you grow your phal ... do you grow them in pot, what media do you use, or they are mounted on wood/fern bark?), they are grown under nursery shade?

why not try mounting on wood or fern bark for a change. I have the same problem in the past until i mount them on fern bark. I also fertilise them with mild orchid fertilizer once a week. Light water misting every morning and evening.
