Orchids are known to have very small seeds, devoid of nutrient reserves. In nature, orchid seeds germinate very slowly and under special conditions – the presence of certain fungi, on the mycelium of which orchid seeds parasitize. However, pots of blooming orchids such as phalaenopsis of various colors are now available in flower centers and supermarkets. How are orchids propagated on an industrial scale?
1) on an industrial scale, orchids are propagated vegetatively (by cuttings, children, dividing rhizomes or rosettes), by tissue culture;
2) very rarely, orchids are propagated by growing from seeds placed on a special nutrient medium.
