How to propagate types of royal orchid

Each line has its own propagation method, propagating from seeds, from the stem ... but for royal herbs, there are many ways. I will write each way in order of priority from easy to difficult, the illustrations will be added later. And to which plants each should be applied.

This article by Uncle Truong_hoangthao in Dalat rose. I feel so good and detailed, so I take the liberty to bring it to you for reference.

As everyone knows, royal primrose is the same or grows seedlings on the trunk (this is called keiky). This breeding method is the simplest, most effective and safest.

In order to have more keiky, we have to create an ideal environment for the mother plant to give the plant without giving flowers, which means sacrificing a season of flowers because mature trees preparing the flowers will be the plants for the quality. the best quality ceiky.

Propagating royal orchid by separating keiki trees: The ideal environment is: cool but not dark, moist but not wet, airy, but not sunny.

The time to nursery keiky: Start when the tree is resting, ie when the tree has lost its leaves, now we should bring the tree to a cool place, watering the mist to keep moisture regularly, watering the stems and letting them dry.

Add a growth stimulant such as atonic, fish feces, B1 ... 2 times a week, even daily.

Experience shows that when nursing ceiky, we should place the mother tree horizontally and bundle the substrate (Big, or wood has been bundled with coir, water moss to increase moisture retention)

When the seedlings are about 5-7cm long, the roots have clung to the new substrate, we boldly cut off the mother's stem, this way is better than keeping the mother stem at the old substrate because at this time the mother tree will use its best to feed. baby, seedlings will grow faster.

Some notes for this way:

- Suitable for species of single-stemmed flower along the trunk (nobile) such as imitation crane, crane like dragon, dragon tu, chicken drum ....

- After separating the substrate, bringing it to direct sunlight will make the seedlings healthier and grow faster than keeping them in the cool. If after a few days of sunshine, the plant can still withstand it, so keep the training position for familiar plants. gradually.

- Water freely, even at noon, observing that the substrate and leaves are too hot, spraying water to reduce heat.

How to propagate royal orchid 2: from seeds

This is relatively difficult and depends heavily on chance, but there is a way to improve germination rates.

I have tried many ways but there is one way for the highest germination rate, this does not take into account the viability of the seedling.

Wait for the fruit to ripen: yellow, stretch or wait for the fruit to crack, then pick the fruit, separate the cotton inside, mix with a solution of glucose and atonic, dose of 1 liter of water + 1 cup of sugar "rose" glucose + 1 atonic lavie bottle cap.

Stir well and then pour the solution into the spray bottle over the mother plants.

After spraying the seeds, we just spray the seeds lightly, keep the humidity evenly for about 1 month to see the seedlings appear, the rate depends on whether the mother substrate is suitable or not (I just say that). Plants grow from seeds or are eaten by fungi, insects ... should be watched regularly, avoid direct rain, avoid sunlight and need stable environmental conditions, should not change the location of host plants.

The third way is safe, with a high rate, and the seedlings are strong but need special care.

How to multiply Hoang Thao orchids Have you ever held in hand a kind of flower like you, with a beautiful round tongue, but only 3 stems, 1 mother, 1 mother, and 1 baby in bloom? Sure the flowers are beautiful, but how do you keep the varieties and make them grow faster?

Be bold, tear them up into individual units, just 3 burns from the eye to sleep close to the base, they will give you a seedling.

For royal herb, extraction is a necessary process to maintain, if not, after many years the plant will gradually decline.

How to propagate species of royal orchid: Observing seedlings larger than the mother plant, we do not think about extraction, but if the seedlings are weaker, the old roots have covered the substrate, it should be separated. And the secret to fast rooting is "cutting the roots" - stimulating new roots to grow more. This also applies to newly harvested trees, leaving old old roots intact will greatly inhibit the rooting of seedlings.

For this way, it is necessary to prepare carefully before performing. Observe the roots of the plant to see if there are any remaining roots? (white, with green root tip as possible), if not, try to make it hard, if the tip is fine, cut off, cut straightly close to the root, but should cut off 1cm so that the tree can stand easily in the new environment.

Environment includes good moisturizing materials such as coir, water moss, crumbs… I often use processed coconut fiber.

How to propagate royal orchid First of all: choose plastic pots (cultivated cattlyea) high pots. Fill up about 1/3 to 1/2 of coconut fiber in a pot, soak in water with B1 or atonic for 1-2 hours.

Tear apart the tree into units, clean it, cut the roots neatly, then put the tree in the pot, note that not burying the root in the substrate. Tense the rope around the old stem with the hanging optical so that each root watering is not disturbed.

Spraying watering keeps the substrate moist, so be patient, about more than 1 month, you will have at least 1 healthy sapling.

I have successfully applied this method to many varieties, especially varieties that are difficult to grow such as virgin, most pink spots ... and those that are easy to grow such as imitation cranes, dragonflies, ... guaranteed to be 100% guaranteed.

This is the result of the 3rd method, which is a bit fussy but the healthy seedlings grow faster than the keiky split.

Multiply ceiky, then pay attention to the embryo tree, that is, the mother's stem. If the stems are healthy, the plant is preparing for flowers, the rate of nearly 100% of the eyes have seedlings. If the older embryo generation, the closer to the tip, the higher the rate of bouncing, but the difficulty is that these eyes usually give flowers, so it is imperative to choose the stem segments as close to the top as possible.

As for keiky incubation techniques, you pay attention to a few basic issues:

- High and stable humidity

- Low light

- Should use germination stimulants - I often use Atonik

- Do not touch the embryo much while in the incubation process

Because the embryo is always in a humid environment, so it is easy to be infected, leading to rot or damage, pay attention to the steps of cleaning and isolating the cuts, using nail polish or whatever, but wait for the cut to dry before applying medicine. into the.

Stemming from passion, perseverance and hard work, after 23 years of research and research on orchid growing techniques, I have accumulated a lot of experience in propagating and cultivating forest orchids effectively.
