Study report of Brazilian phalaenopsis market

Taiwan Orchid Growers Association (TOGA) carried out a study on 14 Brazilian orchid growers in 2015, and found out that Phalaenopsis, Cymbidium, Dendrobium and Oncidium are the main genus grown.

In Brazil, the annual production capacity of Phalaenopsis pot plants achieved 5 million (5,320,000-5,350,000) plants per year, Oncidium 350 thousand and 390 thousand for Dendrobium. On the other hand, Phalaenopsis reached 450 thousand units of cut flowers per year and 150 thousand for the Oncidium.

The study indicates the Netherlands, Belgium, Taiwan and Japan provide most of the seedlings to those growers. The seedlings come in flasks (tissue-culture bottle) or a 1.7inch (5cm) plant while the minority of growers possess a tissue culture lab and the ability to reproduce their own seedlings.

The production costs for those growers ranges from 3 to 4.66 USD for one plant of Phalaenopsis, 2.30 to 3 USD for Oncidium, and 2.60 to 3.60 USD for Dendrobium.
