When beautiful orchids have been grown correctly, they are in blossom almost all year and delight their owners with their excellent racemes.
On the shown picture you can see that, well-arranged in suitable manner, they can remain like an art composition. If you have enough space, arrange your orchids so they have enough daylight. Here are some basic rules for correct cultivation of the capricious orchids:
-more sorts of orchids have to be grown in transparent pots, because their roots need light too.
-all the orchids like very much light, but they don` t have to be directly lit up by the sun.
-avoid over pouring of your orchids. Await for absorbing all the dampness in the pot and then wreck the pot in a vessel with water, covering about ¾ of its height. Water has to be lukewarm and you can add about 10 drops vinegar for each 5 l of water. It affects favorable on orchids.
-when your orchids have faded, await for the dry blossom to fall out and then break in two the floriferous at the third node. This stimulates the plant to form a new floriferous.
-watch regularly for appearance of enemies as cotton plant louse and take steps for their extermination in time. When you have got new orchids, keep them on separate place under quarantine at least 2 weeks, because if there are enemies on the new plant, they will reveal and you will have possibility to delouse the new plants before they infect the other plants.
-orchids don` t like frequent transplanting. Period has to be not shorter than 2-3 years.
