Orchid Seed Sowing Medium

Product ID : P723

Package size: 1 L  –  10 L  –  50 L

This medium is a modification of our original orchid replate medium which has shown to be too high in salt concentration as a seed propagation medium. This medium is modified by reducing the major inorganic salts by ½x. The reduction of salt helps promote the germination of seed of many epiphytic & terrestrial species. Germination may be enhanced by adding 50 mL of coconut water per liter of medium.

Plant species: Phalaenopsis, Epiphytic orchids

This medium is a modification of P668 which has shown to be too high in salt concentration as a seed propagation medium. This medium is modified by reducing the major inorganic salts by ½X. The reduction of salt helps promote the germination of seed of many epiphytic & terrestrial species. Germination may be enhanced by adding 50 mL of coconut water (C195) per liter of medium.
