Usually, they are grown in tissue culture labs because of their excessive need in the hobby. People buy primarily because of its beautiful whitish flowers. Geberelic acid spray; a plant hormone is used by many Gardners to have continuous blooms. In greenhouse conditions, they are given 30 percent of shade for better growth.
