VINOO KARTHIKEYAN

Orchid Farm

SOUTH ASIA - Puthenthope

In 1968, Vinoo Karthikeyan's sprawling farm at Puthenthope on the outskirts of the city was an expanse of unforgiving land beside the Arabian Sea; sandy, sun-scorched, bone dry, bare and wind-swept. The 50-year-old farmer, who won the State government's award for the best horticulturist in 2013, was barely four years old when his father, V. K. Karthikeyan, a veteran agriculturist now aged 90, acquired the 10 acres of seaside land, much to the bewilderment of his well- wishers.

Terrestrial orchids, many of them latest exotic varieties, are his forte. They are propagated in poly houses and then planted on a bed of coconut fibre, mixed with earth and fertilizers.
