How do you care for a flowering orchid?
- Place the orchid in a sunny place, but not in direct sunlight. Put the orchid in a room temperature.
- Keep the orchid well moist. Therefore, give the plant water and water at least once a week and in summer. Make sure that the roots of the plant do not stay in the water. Therefore, preferably remove the residual water from the ornamental pot after watering.
- From April to October, you can plant the plant once every 2 weeks to achieve optimal growth and bloom.
What can you do if the plant has flowed out?
- When the plant is bleeding, you can cut the branch with bloomed flowers. Do this right above the earth.
- In good treatment, the plant will make new shoots, from which new branches will come. This treatment is the same as with a flowering orchid.
- By species, it differs when flowers come into the plant again. For example, a Zygopetalum may bloom 3 times a year. An oncidium will bloom again after 9-12 months.
A zygopetalum takes you home to be surprised several times when the orchid is going to bloom again.
