Tropical Gardening: Protea flowers are a rare treat from Down Under
When Parvin became director in 1968, he was highly impressed with the obvious superior growth of Proteas that were planted at the Kula station three years earlier. As he was familiar with Proteas being grown in California, he was inspired to explore the potential of a Protea industry in Hawaii.
This industry has indeed developed and continues to grow.
With partial funding for Protea research coming from the Governor's Agricultural Coordinating Committee, several College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources researchers have been able to solve some of this young industry's problems and help improve production and handling.
Parvin worked on the management aspects of the crop, such as the selection of superior cultivars, propagation, density spacing, pruning and plant nutrition.
I-Pai Wu, a professor of agricultural engineering, developed drip irrigation systems to meet water requirements in the field and make better use of available water resources. John Cho, Stephen Ferreira and Norman Nagata, plant pathologists, examined fungicides for the control of root rot, a disease problem in Protea production.
Ronald Mau and Arnold Hara, entomologists, helped solve some of the pest problems, including those that could lead to the rejection of shipments to other areas.
Philip Ito, a Hilo-based horticulturist, worked on new types of Protea for the world market.
Robert Paull, a plant physiologist, solved problems arising during shipping and ways to extend Protea shelf life.
Of course, all these efforts became meaningful because of key Protea growers, who developed a good marketing system and took research to action.
So, you see the intriguing Protea blossoms on display in homes and places of business such as hotels didn't just happen. They are the result of concerted efforts by Hawa... Oct 26, 2018

Orchids make classy Mother's Day gifts
Such conditions occur naturally in Volcano, Waimea and upper Kona, Kula on Maui, Kalae on Molokai, Pupukea on Oahu, Waimea on Kauai, and other areas, mostly above 1,500 feet elevation, around the state.The species and hybrids of miniature cymbidiums require basically the same growing conditions as the larger conventional types. A major cultural difference is that most of the miniatures do not require temperatures nearly so cool as their larger relatives. The preferred temperature range for “minis” is 70 to 80 degrees during the day followed by a 10-degree drop at night, a condition much easier to achieve in Hawaii’s lowland areas than that required by the conventional types.To grow most orchid species, here are some hints:• Most orchids require partial shade for best growth. A good rule to follow is to give the plants all the light they can stand without scorching. Excessive shade will result in lush, dark green foliage and few flowers. Too much light may produce scorched spots on the foliage. This means shade is needed immediately. Saran, lath or trees, may be used for overhead shade.• Many cattleya, epidendrum, oncidium and vanda species will tolerate temperatures down to 45 degrees, if in a sheltered location. But most orchids prefer minimum night temperatures of 55-60 degrees. In Hawaii, there really is no maximum temperature for orchids if the humidity and ventilation are increased in proportion to the rise in temperature. In general, temperatures that are comfortable for people also are agreeable for orchid plants.• Watering orchids must be adjusted to the need of each plant and the media in which it is grown. Many orchids can be grown in coarse cinder or even gravel. A large plant will require more water than a small one; orchids in large pots will dry out slowly compared to plants in small pots. Orchids in active growth will require more water than those in a semi-dormant state. This means that plants will require more frequent watering during the warm summer months than the cool winter season. Over-watering has been the main cause of death of orchid plants. Roots will rot, and the medium becomes soggy and soft, which is harmful to the plant. Remember, never water a wet plant under any circumstances.Fertilization can be a controversial subject. Plants growing in cinder or rock may be fertilized with a complete liquid fertilizer of a 1-1-1 ratio. Follow the directions on the label. You may apply this mixture every three to four weeks in place of a normal water application.You can minimize orchid care by attaching orchids to a tree like plumeria or calabash. That way you can have dozens of blooming orchids even in a small garden. Other epiphytes, like staghorn ferns, bromeliads and some vireya rhododendrons, may be incorporated to create air gardens.Many more rare and interesting species will be available at next weekend’s Mother’s Day Orchid Show and Sale, along with expert orchid enthusiasts to answer your gardening questions.
