Dendrobium sp., types of planting pots, growing medium.


Some of the issues to achieve Dendrobium orchid with flourish flowers and maximum growth quality are to choose the suitable type of planting pots and also the right growing medium. The purpose of this research is to determine the best planting pot and growing medium for Dendrobium sp. The research was carried in Kebun Percobaan Faculty of Agriculture UPN “Veteran” Yogyakarta, Dusun Sempu, Desa Wedomartani, Kecamatan Ngemplak, Kabupaten Sleman, Special Region of Yogyakarta, from April – August 2021.

Factor II was four different types of growing medium: fern, sphagum (peat moss), charcoal, and coconut coir. Each treatment combination was repeated thrice. Observed parameter consisted of agronomic parameters. Analysis of varience (ANOVA) with 5% significance rate and Duncan Multiple Range Test with 5% significance rate was used for data analyzing. The result of this research showed that black plastic and transparent pot, also sphagum and charcoal as the growing medium have better effect for the growth of Dendrobium orchid.
