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 zygopetalem takes you home to be surprised several times when the orchid is going to bloom again.
