Pictures on the left are showing the tissue culture technique used to propagate and speed up the germination of Chikanda.
After successful propagation, then the plant material is transplanted in the greenhouse.
Here chikanda is growing well as shown in the pictures on the right.
This project has also been successful suggesting that production of large quantities that can be distributed to the farmers is possible.
As long as there are funds, this project has huge potential to contribute to the livelihood of the people and also preserve the orchids which are on the path of extinction.
