Abstract: Solar drying is usually done for solid materials, like spices, fruits , fish and meat. But deviating from the usual practice, solar drying of liquid materials was attempted. Liquid wastes like starch water and mature coconut water were subjected to solar drying. Apart from bringing it to a dried form, more importance was given to bring a reuse from these dried materials. This option of reuse could minimize pollution and bring about effective waste management. Energy content of the dried materials was also calculated. But the recovery obtained after drying was in small quantity and drying needed a large surface area. Dried mature coconut water was used as an additive in culture media for orchid seed germination studies in Spathoglottis plicata. It was found that incorporating the mature coconut water concentrate in the culture medium could enhance the seed germination percentage.
