Efficacy of bio input products as organic foliar orchids Fertilizer
Anita D. Mante, Dr. Leovegildo B. Mante, Jr.
This study was conducted to determine the efficacy of different bio input products as organic foliar fertilizer on the growth and floral production of dendrobium and to recommend the best organic foliar fertilizer for orchidrnThe results of the study showed that dendrobium orchid was highly responsive to the different bio organic foliar fertilizer. Dendrobium fertilized with Fermented Plant Juice (FPJ) was significantly the earliest to form active roots, longer root length, greatest increased in pseudobulb, earlier to initiate flower, more florets in every lead, bigger florets diameter, and higher flowering percentage compared to those treated with other bio - organic foliar fertilizer.rnThe use of fermented plant juice (FPJ) in 2:1 ratio (2 tablespoon : 1 liter of water) is recommended as best bio organic foliar fertilizer while fermented fish extract and Vermi tea is recommended as growth enhancer and rooting hormones for phaleanopsis orchids like dendrobium.
