The Kingdom of Orchids
Due to it’s ideal ecological environment and climate, Taiwan has become one of the best places to grow Phalaenopsis primordial(known as Moth Orchid). Relying on rich genetic resources and environmental advantages, Taiwanese breeders have successfully grown many species of orchid, earning Taiwan the title, “Kingdom of Orchids”.
Phalaenopsis(Moth Orchid) growers take advantage of biological techniques to produce large quantities of quality, virus-free seedlings. They use specialized greenhouse facilities and cultivation controls to cultivate Phalaenopsis with stable color, excellent-quality and orderly anthotaxy. The annual Phalaenopsis production is around 30 million. 80% of these supply the export market. These products include flask, seedling and mature blooming plants. Japan, America, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and the Netherlands are the main countries we export to. Tainan, a city located in the south of Taiwan, is especially dedicated to orchid horticulture. The Academia Sinica Biotechnology Center in Southern Taiwan is developing Phalaenopsis transgenic techniques to create species diversity and increase pest-resistance. In other words, it can also generate new potential profit for the market and meet customers’ needs.
