Mokara is one of the widely cultivated orchid in the Pacific region, especially in the tropics. In this study we evaluated the longevity of inflorescences and flowers 10 Mokara cultivars: ‘Bloonlong’, ‘Calipso’, Chak Kuan’, ‘Chorcharood’, ‘Jenistar’, ‘Kitti’, ‘Pranee’, ‘Robin’, ‘Tammy’ and ‘Tangerine’. Cultivar ‘Kitti’ inflorescences were characterized by excellent vase life for more than three weeks. The highest longevity had the flowers of ‘Bloonlong’, ’Kitti’ and ‘Robin’. Spraying flowers of Mokara orchids with the OASIS® Clear Life preparation increased their quality depending on the cultivar.
