Orchid Care Tip of April - Repotting
Once every 2 to 3 years. In rapidly degradable substrates (mostly peat-containing substrates) every 1 to 2 years (but less suitable).
a.) In spring and or after flowering
b.) In dark months of the year (October to February) avoid as possible, unless you can save the plant by a fresh soil
c.) When a new shoot or new roots become visible
d.) If the plant grows out over the pot edge
Order of measures:
1.) Remove pot
2.) Remove old substrate thoroughly (shake off)
3.) Remove completely dried or rotten roots
4.) Select pot one size larger
5.) If the plant is weak-growing or sickly, take one size smaller - a small pot and thus little substrate help to rebuild the plant quickly.
After repotting, moderate for 6 to 8 weeks, rather restrained pour. At that time shady place, little breeze, means to avoid extra evaporation. Note our large orchid-potted action in the orchid center thursday April 25 to Saturday April 27, 2019 from 10:00 to 18:00
