Here it is shown that the utilization of an intermediate acclimatization phase using three luminosity conditions between in vitro culture and acclimatization promotes ex vitro survival in production of Dendrobium phalaenopsis Deang Suree.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of intermediate acclimatization with different luminosity conditions in the survival and the development of Dendrobium phalaenopsis Deang Suree seedlings.
The study material consisted of seedlings of Dendrobium phalaenopsis Deang Suree, with 180 days, yielded from in vitro sowing, cultured on MS medium and kept in a growth room with an average temperature of 25[+ or -]2[degrees]C and 12 hours of photoperiod, light intensity of 18.
