Phalaenopsis

Multiply their orchids inventory independently by offshoot. You can create these cuttings by three different methods. While the generative propagation of orchids, seed propagation, or by tissue culture, for a layman difficult to perform, you can cultivate vegetatively relatively easy orchids offshoot. The propagation of orchids is so-called Kindel, head cuttings or by Division. Depending on the growth habit of the Orchid you can apply one of three options, to get orchids offshoot.

The growth habit is divided into monopodiale and sympodiale orchids. Monopodialen orchids is a Scion plants, while sympodiale orchids grow Scion stranded. To get from sympodialen orchids Orchid cuttings, you can perform a division of the plant. This one cuts off a part of the root with the new drive with a sharp knife. Should you like to disinfect the cut surfaces with charcoal. Sometimes, you can partition the Orchid without a knife, simply by pulling. All Parts are again planted in substrate and continue to grow there.

The proliferation of so-called head-cuttings is one more way to breed orchids offshoot itself. They succeed in some climbing growing, monopodialen orchids like E.g. the vanilla. Below an aerial root, severed a side shoot, and it planted in a pot with an appropriate substrate. Here, too, you should treat the cut surfaces again with charcoal. Monopodiale Orchid (z.B: Phalaenopsis) and, even more rarely, sympodiale orchids (E.g. Dendrobium hybrids) Kindel form sometimes independently. They grow in monopodialen plants after flowering at the end of the peduncle and sympodialen plants mostly to the bulbs. The Kindel consist initially only leaves. Once the Kindel has made multiple roots and has grown sufficiently, it from the mother plant can be separated and placed in a small pot with substrate. If you regularly spray the little plants and pour you will grow quickly. Kindel may even after relative a short time be brought to bloom. In this way you can drag orchids offshoot easily yourself.
