Cattleya Hybrids Seedling
The cattleya group is known for large group of flowering plants, showy, and sometimes fragrant flowers. Their presence is in most areas of the world and they are highly adaptive as a species. Most cattleya produces one new pseudobulb and produce flowers the same growing season. Some of the hybrids might produce two blooms annually.
Cattleya Flasks: 40 plantlets in glass bottle and process takes over 24 months.
When you receive the orchid flask from the transportation, de-flask them within 1 month or immediately if the bottle breaks.
You can remove the plants by breaking the bottle.
You should cover the bottle by newspaper about 3-4 layers before breaking it. Smash it at the edge. Carefully remove the remaining glass. Clean the agar from the root to prevent incurring of the fungi. You may drop some Betadine to the cleaning water and gently stir. Then remove them to the dry basket. Keep the plants straight and close to other to maintain the moisture. Watering them once a day at the morning. Do not use fertilizer in this state.
After 1 month, plant them in the planting material that is suitable to your climate. In this state, fertilizer can be applied. the recommend fertilizer is 21-21-21 fertilizer grade and alternating with 15-30-15 fertilizer grade. They will grow about 1 inch per month. You may use the half dose for the seedling plants but twice a week instead of one.
Humidity: Water is the main component in plant cell (about 90%). They use it for photosynthesis, as a solvent, to controlling the temperature and etc. Most of Orchids grow well in 60-80% relative humidity. They use water in Co2 fixation period. But don’t make their root too much wet.
Light: The factors that affect the growth of orchids are light intensity, duration, and wavelength. No direct sunlight. 50-60% shaded net is recommended.
Temperature: 25 – 30 ◦C at daytime and 15 – 20 ◦C at nighttime.
Plants Nutrition: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Sulphur, Iron, Boron, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Molybdenum, and Chlorine.
Time: Water them at 6.00-8.00 am.
Frequency: Depends on your humidity and planting material. 1-2 times a day in dry or hot period.
Quality of water is important. Watering them a lot with good quality water, less watering when you have poor quality water. This concept should be in your mind.
The nutrient absorption of orchid’s root depends on the amount of carbohydrate in leaves. And The absorption of Nitrate will increase with the amount of carbohydrate in root. When the orchids don’t have enough light or the temperature is high, you can add some sugar in fertilizer to increase the carbohydrate in plant.
When you mix crystal fertilizer, you should add wetting agent or spreader but not Calcium (The solution will precipitate). For small and fast grow orchid which have good respond with Nitrogen such as Dendrobium or Cattleya. The recommend fertilizer grade is balanced grade (21-21-21 grade) and alternate with high N fertilizer grade (30-20-10 or 30-10-20 grade). When the weather is dry, use high N fertilizer grade for 2 times (1 time/week) and alternate with balanced grade for 1 time. In humid period, use high N fertilizer grade for 1 time alternate with balanced grade for 2 times or use 28-14-35 grade for all over the year.
Normally, The flasks are packed in a carton box – 46*59*20 cm size. The approximate weight is 15 kg. This box can pack 20 flasks or 80 deflasks. You can mix with other variety.
For Deflask: We will dry them for 2-3 days to reduce the moisture (over moisture during transit can make plant rot) and chemical treatment to prevent fungi and pest. The plants will be packed properly. The shredded paper/packing paper will be used as packing material. It will prevent the plants and absorb the over moisture. In cold period, The plants will be covered by Styrofoam
The deflasks are dried before packing to prevent rot during the transportation. In some countries, we have to bare root the plants due to their regulations and reducing the shipping charge.
The transportation could take from 2 days to 7 days. you should prepare the suitable area or bench before arrival.
- Unpack the plants immediately and carefully upon arrival of shipment.
- Spread out the plants.
- Spray water in the next day.
- Potting them with the right environment within one week. Vanda and Mokara orchid do not require the media.
- Spray fertilizer and fungicide after two weeks arrival.
- The plant leaves might turn yellow and fall. Plants will recover back soon.
Normally in Thailand, we use coconut husk or charcoal as an Orchid media. But bark, sphagnum moss, perlite and cinder are also recommended. It depends on your climate and humidity.
Orchids are air plants. They don’t like a compact media or soil. They need some space between their root to be able to breath. They don’t like too much water either. If you see some leaves turning yellow, take it out. It will stop spreading. This can be caused by over watering or lack of light. You can check it by touching the media. And indirect sunlight is a must.
