Cut-flower production from Phalaenopsis grown in expanded clay. Fine-grain expanded clay gave the best results

Cut-flower production from Phalaenopsis grown in expanded clay. Fine-grain expanded clay gave the best results

Zierpflanzenbau 26(24): 964

Phalaenopsis plants were grown on expanded clay (Lecaton) or shale (Leca) of various particle sizes and watered once a week with a 0.05% solution of NPK fertilizer (3 litres per 0.73 msuperscript 2 plot), the irrigation water being allowed to drain away unrestrained. Additional fertilizer applications were made at different times. Stem length, number of flowers per stem and number of flowering stems per plot were studied at harvest.
