Transplanting Orchid Seedlings


It is made sterile, like sowing, with the same care and the same kind of work space. It is to be filled using a long spatula or forceps, the seedlings from one box to the other. This is necessary when the seedlings have grown and they are too tight against each other.

When transplanting?

Once your seeds have sprouted and line completely agar

When protocorms are too tight


When the seedlings reach the top of your container

Choice of container

Choose at first the 450ml cans. If your plants are growing too high, prefer 700ml cans.


We offer 2 types of hormones:

BAP - Benzylaminopurine (cytokinin) for better growth

ANA - naphthalene acid: for a better rooting.

These are homones to use in very small quantities and to put in the middle during the preparation thereof. You will have better results. (manual of hormones on the products)
