 Many orchids take several years to flower. We have been able to induce early flowering in the temperate orchid Cymbidium niveo-marginatum Mak in vitro. The combined treatment of cytokinin (6-benzylaminopurine), restricted nitrogen supply with phosphorus enrichment, and root excision (pruning) induced transition of the Cymbidium shoot from a vegetative to a reproductive stage. Nearly 100% of the plants flowered within 90 days only when the combined treatment was applied. When root excision and… CONTINUE READING
