Orchid growing is one of the highest return generators in agriculture.
Similarly, putting money to Orchid growing in commercial level is one of highest risk taking investment you can do.

Hence you have to have a thorough knowledge and experience about it before investing in larger scale.
Actually in that sense it is same like stock trading.

Best way is to start slowly in small scale , get experience and then expand it gradually. You can visit farms, exhibitions, talk with people while studying it. It is good if you can visit Chatuchak market in Bangkok some day specially in a Wednesday.

I want to reply you like this, mainly because, these orchids are very much vulnerable to decieses like roor rot, top rot , bacterial attacts and various pest attacks. Not like in other crops, here it is very diffucult to locate and notice an attack before it damaging lot of plants.
For eg. root rot spread inside the entire plant first by destroying all the roots and then damaging psedobulbs while the leaves stay in very much healthy looking state.
At such stage you cannot do anythng but remove the plant. If this happen to the entire bed/lot you loose your money and hopes.

Hence first, you have to have some knowledge and experience about this cultivation . Continuous watching and learning is needed; until you are confident enough to invest in large scale.
There are lot of things books do not say.

Damages due to rain is also a big problem. Too much dampness in rooting media will rot your plants, definitely.
If you can invest in toatally or partially controlled environment that is worthwhile. Specially if you can protect plants from rain a big problm is over and your income will increase.

Later today or tmr, I will put here some info/replies to your questions.

මිට අවුරුදු 20 කට පමණ පෙර මගෙන් උපදෙස් අරන් මේ වැඩේ පටන්ගත්ත අය අතුරින් එක්කෙනෙක් දේශීය වෙළෙඳ පොළ අල්ලාගෙන පස්සේ එක්ස්පෝට් කරලා අද ලංකාවේ කෝටි පතියෙක් වෙච්ච කෙනෙක් ඉන්නවා. හැබැයි දැන්නම් එයා ට ඒ කාලේ මතක නැහැ. No contacts now. But, I can guide you to the people who are selling seedlings ( including that guy) .

If you are in no hurry, willing to learn by mistakes ( there will be lot of mistakes + losses) you can become an expert on this. Even if you fail in first instances, that knowledge will pay you in future. - same like stock market.

Hi Stumpy my friend, Green79, appuhami & others,

Thank you. Nice to hear from you.

Few years ago, I tried something similar to Green's suggestion but did not workout due to many reasons. It was an LLC , initially done by me, then offer shares to others who are interested to join as contributing holders.

Sinhalese names are tricky as these are not native to sri lanka. Sometime they might not have a common usage name in Sinhalese. Need to research further. Worthinton's Ceylon Trees book would have been handy but then again trees not native Sri Lanka will be a problem.



Walnut - Juglans regia - sinhalese name Aettakottam?
Rosewood- Dalbergia latifolia
Maple - Acer

I also have the same data as slstock given for Nadun and Burutha

For Nadun we can't find any English term. Nadun is not a Sinhala name, it is common term in Asia. It was (name ?) introduced to LK by Dutch ppl.

For Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia lantifolia) I have no Sinhala name. BTW, there is a variety called Dalbergia lanceolaria which can be found locally in LK; it is called Bol Maara බොල් මාර

For Walnut ඇට කොට්ටන් is given in books.

Most of the wood names used for furniture during the dutch era can be found in the book "R. L. Brohier’s Furniture of the Dutch Period".

Chinwi,

Good as you just confirmed what I found about Rosewood and Walnut ( sinhalese name "Aettakottam" which is apparently not used much by people).

Indian name for Rosewood tree (Dalbergia lantifolia) is 'beete" or "sitsal" according to research.


Maple is a mystery yet as it belong to Acer Genus which apparently has 100s of species. No sinhalese name can be traced yet. If someone knows please post.
