The experiment was undertaken during 2009 to 2012 to study the different concentration of panchgavya on the growth and flowering of Cymbidium ‘Sleeping Nymph’. The media application of 1:30 panchgavya registered highest pseudobulb length and girth and resulted in 31.66 and 41.3% increase over control, respectively. Furthermore, the number of spikes per plant, floret per spike, spike length and rachis length were recorded highest in the media application of panchgavya at 1:30 and resulted in 130, 55.3, 22.4 and 26.3% increase over control, respectively. Among the foliar application of panchgavya, the treatment receiving panchgavya at 1:30 (T3) performed better for growth and flowering of Cymbidium hybrid. The results confirmed that, the application of panchgavya at 1:30 either in media or in foliar application was best for the growth and flowering of Cymbidium hybrid.
Key words: Cymbidium hybrid, panchgavya, growth, spike production.
