abstract
The emphasis of the project is on clonal propagation of orchids. Important aspects are the composition of a well defined medium and the evaluation of the needs for plant growth regulators. Environmental factors such as the relative humidity also plays an important role during plant development. Attention is also paid to flowering control. Critical factors are temperature and light. The application of growth retardants will be evaluated to control size of inflorescences.
