The aim of the research was to improve the growth and quality of Echinopsis hybrids
plants. Substrates with added chabazitic-zeolites and Effective microorganisms were used, in addition to assessing seed germination and plant growth after treatment, the test examined whether microorganisms sprayed on flowers could influence and attract pollinating insects.
The trial included 4 tests: 1) substrates for the cultivation of shoots; 2) substrates for the
evaluation of seed germination; 3) effect of substrates on flower production; 4) spray
treatment with microorganisms to evaluate the behaviour of bees.
The substrates used have included the use of soil and inert materials or soil with the
addition of zeolite and chabasite and effective microorganisms.
The results showed that the use of zeolites and EM microorganisms increase the quality
characteristics of Echinopsis plants, in terms of vegetative and radical growth, increase in seed germination and flowering duration.
