How to care for an orchid?
Tatyana LUKYANOVAAgronomist of the Main Botanical Garden named after N.V. Tsitsin RAS:
• Having received an orchid as a gift, examine its leaves, roots and soil - pine bark. Cut and rotten orchid roots with fungicide. Replace the decomposed soil by replanting the flower in another ceramic pot so that the roots of the flower breathe.
• Frequency of watering depends on soil moisture. It is recommended to water the orchid with boiled or acidified (oxalic or citric acid) water. Once a week, soak the pot with the orchid, dropping it in a bucket of water (water level - to the leaves). Aerial roots from the stem must be sprayed from the spray gun.
• Keep a flower in the kitchen, because there is high humidity, which the orchid loves so much. Once a week, it is advisable to feed it with special fertilizers, you can not do this in November and December.
• Orchid needs a lot of light, but in the summer it must be shaded, hiding from direct sunlight.
