Abstract

Fertilizing orchids will be more effective when applied on leaves in addition the flower can be induced by proper type of fertilizer at optimum concentration. This study was aimed at determining the best combination of type and concentration of foliar fertilizer in inducing rapid and uniform flower. A completely randomized design with five replications was used to allocate factorial arrangement of the treatments. The first factor was type of foliar fertilizer, consisted of Growmore, Gaviota, Gandasil B, and Hyponex. The second factor was concentration of application and consisted of 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 g L-1. The results showed that Growmore and Hyponex with concentration between 2 to 3 g L-1 were able to accelerate flowering of S. plicata var. Alba orchids and to induce uniform flowering, as indicated by uniformity in cormus diameter, flower stalk length, diameter and number, number of flowers, flower diameter and vase life.
