2021 Research Project List
:::

Germplasm development and application of Holcoglossum genus and Cattleya genus.

  1. Complete the collection of 32 species such as Holcoglossum spp., Vanda spp., Rhychonopsis Taiwan Glamour, Phalaenopsis spp., etc. The collected H. pumilum, H. flavescens and H. amesianum have the characteristics of low temperature resistance, short juvenile period and shortened internodes. They can be intergeneric cross with Vanda orchids and bred potted Vanda. Rhychonopsis Taiwan Glamour has the characteristics of fragrance and bright colors, intergeneric cross with Phalaenopsis bred scented Phalaenopsis.
  2. Complete the collection of 25 species of Cattleya spp.
  3. The original characteristics of the 46 species of orchids mentioned above have been investigated.
  4. Complete 20 intergeneric cross combinations.
