A lady farm operator who grows fruits and orchids is very ecstatic these days. She is Remy Rodis-Santelices who has a farm in Sto. Tomas, Batangas and another in Pozorrubio, Pangasinan. After three months of using an organic foliar fertilizer on her durian trees, ornamentals and orchids, the plants are doing extremely well. Her durian trees, in particular, have started to produce a lot of flowers since the middle of last December after spraying the trees weekly with the organic fertilizer since last October.
Her colored dendrobium orchids which rarely flowered before have developed fat stems and are now profusely flowering. The same is true with her other ornamental plants. They are growing very vigorously.
The registered name of the foliar fertilizer is Advance Organic Fertilizer manufactured in Cebu by Green Philippines. Soon another factory will be set up in Pangasinan to take care of the requirements of farmers and gardeners in Luzon.
