ABSTRACT

An experiment was conducted at Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute, (BARI) Joydebpur, Gazipur to evaluate 21 epiphytic hybrid orchids. The experiment was laid out in the randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. Correlation coefficient indicated that inflorescence length had positive and highly significant relationship with flowering area, number of florets per inflorescence and flowering duration. Path coefficient analysis showed flowering area directly contributed towards the inflorescence length and flowering duration had considerable positive direct effect on inflorescence length. So the inflorescence length, flowering area, number of florets per inflorescence and flowering duration were the important characters for varietal selection of orchids.
