Orchid cultivation methods and matters needing attention

The best way for novice to breed orcidaceae is to use transparent plastic pots, raw materials of finished products, and healthy seed sources. Daily management is to water once every two days, so as to raise orcidaceae well. The following we Yaojia Orchidaceae to you to explain the novice potted plant methods and precautions.

1.Flowerpot selection

Novice orchids usually like to dig the soil to see the roots and buds, but they don’t know how to water them. Therefore, if you choose a transparent plastic pot, novice friends can intuitively see the degree of dryness and wetness of the plant materials in the pot, so that they can know when to water them. At the same time, the transparent pot can sometimes see the growth of the orchid root in the pot, and see the crystal head of the orchid root; Plus the transparent pot can be completely set in the purple sand pot, and beautiful.

2.Orchidaceae Soil selection

Orcidaceae soil has a wide range of choices. For novice friends, we suggest that hard planting materials should be used. If hard planting materials are used, there will be no water accumulation, but also ventilation and ventilation, and it is not easy to rot seedlings. Hard planting materials include: pyrophyllite, fairy soil, Phytolith, diatomite, perlite, etc. the ratio of planting materials can be: 50% of Phytolith + 30% of Xiantu + 10% of pyrophyllite + 10% of perlite. We can also use the proportion of our Yaojia orcidaceae soil: New Zealand bark + phytolith + Xiantu + perlite. If we use Orchidaceae plant material, we add a thoroughly decomposed New Zealand bark, which is relatively more water retaining, but does not accumulate water. Why not choose our domestic pine bark or peanut shell? We will talk about this in the next issue, or you can contact me directly.

3.Provenance selection

The selection of Orchidaceae provenance is to choose healthy provenance as much as possible. Novice friends can choose cheap varieties such as Cymbidium ensifolium’s dafengsu and Qingshan Yuquan; Cymbidium goeringii’s Songmei and Jiyuan.

4.Watering management

If you use transparent pot and hard plant material on the top just now, you can directly lift the pot to see the dry and wet degree of plant materials in the pot after watering each time. If it is moist, you don’t need to water it. If the planting stone slowly turns to light yellow, you can water it. In summer, try to pour it after 8:00 p.m., and after watering, put it on the balcony for ventilation Blow dry the area, or use an electric fan to dry. If we choose our friends from Orchidaceae soil, I suggest that we should control water and practice seedlings every half a month. That is to say, after watering this time, do not water for several consecutive days. Lift the pot to see the root situation. When the root is a little dehydrated, water it thoroughly to achieve the effect of growing seedlings and promoting root and flower. Reasonable water control and seedling training is good for Orchidaceae to flower or root.

5.Fertilization management

Novice friends always have a misconception about when to apply fertilizer or what kind of fertilizer Orchidaceae should apply. Orchidaceae likes thin fertilizer and doesn’t need to apply it frequently. Also, do not apply any flower fertilizer, because some flower fertilizer contains too much nitrogen, and the nitrogen fertilizer is long leaves, which is not suitable for Orchidaceae. In other words, if there is a lot of nitrogen fertilizer, the growd Orchidaceae looks very fat But they are all full of fat, without lean meat; Orchidaceae should be strong, not fat. How to apply fertilizer? We usually do it in spring. We can apply haokangduo or magic fertilizer directly on the pot. In other times, a little light potassium phosphate can be sprayed every half a month or so. Remember to spray at night.

6.Pest management

Generally speaking, there are fewer pests such as scale insects, whiteflies, red spiders, snails and so on. Generally speaking, if it is raised on the balcony of a family, it is relatively rare; if the disease is planted in a ventilated environment with hard planting materials, the disease is relatively less, but we also need to control it. We can spray prochloraz, carbendazim, methyltobutrazine and other fungicides every month for disinfection and sterilization.

7.Illumination problem

The growth of all things depends on the sun, and orcidaceae is no exception. Like us, in summer or autumn, if you are exposed to the sun all the time, you can’t stand it, and your skin will also get sunburnt. If you keep sprinkling, the leaves will also get sunburn. At the same time, the sunburnt leaves can’t degenerate, that is to say, they always exist. In summer and autumn, orcidaceae should keep the sun as low as possible.

The above are the seven elements of how to grow orchids best. I believe that there must be a qualitative leap in orchid plant technology. The difficulty of orchid plant is watering. As long as you master the watering pass, there will be no problem.
