Helpful Tips for Growing Orchids

When we think about having this type of plants at home, it is important that we follow a series of care to protect them and make the duration of its flowering much longer.

It is for this reason that today, we bring you some useful tips to keep in mind when growing and having orchids at home. Pay close attention.

The first thing to keep in mind is that after buying these plants, orchids need to have a period of adaptation to the new conditions in which they will live in our home, so we must be patient and not be alarmed if they do not bloom. quickly or if they lose the flower quickly.

In the same way, it is very important that we bear in mind that to have the orchid a mixture of pine bark and blond peat is a good idea, since the same substrate that we use for our indoor plants should not be used because our plant could die.

We must avoid that the orchids suffer unnecessary cooling during the night, such as sudden changes in temperature and even excess heat during the day, since it could cause a flowering flat. It is recommended that the temperature to which our flower is exposed is warm and constant, so we advise not to have them in places where there is some type of radiator or air conditioning.

Remember that watering must be frequent, so that the substrate is always very humid but not flooded, since orchids are very sensitive to excessive watering and fungi could occur at the base and on their roots.

I recommend that you change your pot plant at least every two years, using a special substrate for the type of orchids you have, to prevent them from getting sick or getting some kind of plague or infection.
