How Do I Know When My Orchids Need Transplantation

It’s very important to choose the correct transplantation time for orchids, otherwise they will dye. These splendid plants are very sensitive and they need special care. Transplantation is one of the most important steps when it comes to orchid care.

Tips and way of action

1. When roots of considerable lengths appear over the edges of the pot, it means that the plant needs a larger pot.

2. If the plant has triggered the flowering process, with a growing floral stem, you have to postpone the transplantation until the flowers will fall.

3. If the plant is not in the flowering process, the pot can be changed.

4. Remove all diseased roots (usually brown, softened).

5. Gather the roots and place them in the pots facing downwards.

6. The pot is filled with a substrate for orchids (coniferous bark) soaked in water.

7. Careful! The base of the leaves should not be covered with this coniferous bark substrate. That would cause rotting the plant.

8. The regular watering program will be resumed after a week.

9. As a rule, transplants are done every two years.

10. Note: These indications refer to epiphytic orchids (for example, Orhideea faleno).
