Orchid Supplies You Need For Repotting Orchids

Orchid Planter

 An orchid planter is different to regular plant pots. Orchid pots for epiphytic orchids like the moth orchids a clear plastic pots that will let the light through. Vanda orchids like the wooden baskets. These type of orchid pots have to be hung up. They are also suitable for Cattleya, Phalaenopsis and other epiphytic orchid varieties. These orchid planters might need to be lined with coconut husk fibers in between the slats to hold the orchid potting mix. These pots have a lovely natural appearance and allow plenty of air to circulate around the delicate roots.

Orchid Soil

 The right orchid potting mix is essential for the success with these plants. The mixtures have to be coarse and allow a lot of air near the roots. It should not break down and compact too quickly. This can result in rotting roots and loss of the plant. A lot of the cheap orchid potting soils contain too many small parts, dust and dirt and are not worth their money. You are better off investing into a good quality potting soil that is blended by specialist suppliers for the different types of orchids. This will ensure that your orchids stay healthy and keep blooming for a long time.

Orchid Fertilizer

Orchid fertilizer is formulated different than the regular plant fertilizers available. The delicate roots of orchid plants require less strength of the fertilizer. Fertilizer solutions that are too concentrated will damage the root systems. Look out for the right orchis fertilizer and use them in the right concentration with every third watering.
