Australia: Orchid grower realizes 20% more plants per m2
Gary Spink with a Plant Growth Cell
“After switching our entire production process to the use of PGCs, we see a substantial increase in the number of plants per m2. Quality is also up because overlapping foliage is no longer causing uneven watering. Another advantage we appreciate is that the shape of the plants grown in PGCs is very symmetrical and upright: this is exactly what consumers are looking for. The design of the PGC seems to force the spikes upward, so we rarely see any of them getting caught under leaves and becoming deformed. And, even after three years, we haven’t had any breakdowns due to UV exposure. We can only conclude that the plastic used to make the PGCs must be of a high quality. Although we have few problems with bacterial disease, when we do see the occasional diseased plant, the PGC seems to ‘quarantine’ the disease to keep the problem from spreading to adjacent plants.”
