You will need
  • Transparent plastic pot with a perforated bottom
  • The substrate for orchids
  • Activated carbon
  • Drainage for flowers
Before the beginning of operation place the pot with the Orchid in water for a time to the substrate, which is a flower, soaked and separated from the walls of the pot with ease. Orchids are preferably grown in a plastic pots - first, the flower is easier to remove by squeezing the walls of the pot, and secondly, to glass and clay pots roots flower can be cold, if they are, for example, on the window. If the roots orchids clung to the walls of the pot, carefully separate them with a wooden stick.
Next, rinse the orchids roots with warm water, to clinging to him, the substrate is moved away without damaging the flower.
If the roots you find rotten areas, they must be cut to a healthy part of the root. The cut must sprinkle with powdered activated carbon. Next, you pour in the prepared pot with a perforated bottom of a small drainage layer. Drop the Orchid on the drainage layer and carefully fill with substrate. Periodically shake the pot or tapping it on the walls for a uniform distribution of the substrate between the roots. Orchids need a special substrate, which can be bought in any flower shop. No need to pack the substrate tightly, the air and light and water is good enough to penetrate to the roots of the Orchid. If part of the roots in the pot does not fit, there is nothing wrong that they will remain on the surface.
Do not water the Orchid immediately after it was transplanted, because we've had enough to wet the roots by washing them. After planting a pot of Orchid should be placed in a shaded area with high humidity. First time to water an Orchid can be in two or three weeks, moving it to the place where it will stand permanently.
