The orchids have taken a significant position in cut flower industry due to its attractiveness, long shelf life, high productivity, right season of bloom, easy in packing and transportation. Orchid accounts for a large share of global floriculture trade both as cut flowers and as potted plants and is estimated around 10% of international fresh cut flower trade. The Netherlands is the top most orchid exporting country (39.67%) followed by Thailand (28.41%), Taiwan (10%), Singapore (10%) and New Zealand (6%), respectively. Importing countries are mainly Japan (30%), UK (12%), Italy (10%), France (7%) and the USA (6%), respectively. The total orchid cut flower trade of the world mostly consists of 85% Dendrobium species and 15% Phalaenopsis and Cymbidium species and Asia is the main source of orchid to enter the world. In India, some of native genera like Cymbidium, Paphiopedilum, Vanda, Arachnis and Dendrobium are cultivated on a large scale for cut flower production. The Cymbidium is mainly grown in NEH Region, Sikkim, Darjeeling hills, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam. Tropical orchids are cultivated in Kerala and some parts of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Maharashtra.
