Orchids, Anthuriums, Heliconias, Pineapple, Foliage
The Flaskers Business hopes to offer a way for the orchid growers- to get and give their personal experiences with other new growers - to this end that the shared information will be of some value to one and all.
SEED PROPAGATION LIBRARY:
We have seed multiplication library for species and endemics to help preserve or conserve old world hybrids or species and to this effect we explore the possibility to store and preserve seed pods.
How to work with the Flaskers Business ?
Identify a few named species seed pods and mail them. Exchange seeds and spores and sedling material and try some unknown propagation route to get to an innovative sphere.
Send in dry orchid seed through the postal or courier services.
Please do not use any form of plastic as a padding- Orchid seed- in transit need to have air circulate around them and the use of plastic as a cushion often lets the seed develop molds and spoil in shipment.
We will normally take 8-12 weeks to sow the seeds in flasks and provide you a feedback.
CULTURE CONTAMINATION PRODUCTS
Applicants have surprisingly discovered that these combinations of chemicals, in a particular range of concentrations, are effective in reducing or preventing microbial contamination in plant tissue cultures for the duration of the tissue culture period, but allow for substantially normal germination of seeds or substantially normal growth or development of plants, plant organs, plant tissues or plant cells.
The relative concentrations of the individual components comprising the chemical agent may be varied to produce a mixture that is optimally effective in any particular plant culture medium, plant species, plant seed, plant, plant organ, plant tissue or plant cell.
ORCHID SEED MULTIPLICATION MEDIA
A rather good and simple media for those seeds that germinate quickly comes from a grower in the UK.- Try this for simplicity.

Take 1/4 tsp standard slow release fertilizer 20-20-20
400 mg Calcium nitrate
1 ppm Niacine
1 ppm Thiamine

8 gms Agar Ph to 5.2
Another good simple media for replate work-
To make 1 liter replate media
1/4 tsp standard slow release fertilizer 20-10-10
400 mg calcium nitrate
1 ppm niacine
1 ppm Thiamine 1 ppm NAA
