GROW AND CARE PAPHIOPEDILUM ROTHSCHILDIANUM ORCHID

 Cultural information should only be used as a guide, and should be to be adapted to suit you. Your physical location; where you grow your plants, how much time you have to devote to their care, and many other factors, will need to be taken into account. Only then can you decide on the cultural methods that best suit you and your plants.

Light:

 Paphiopedilum rothschildianum orchid needs a light level of 20000-30000 lux. Scattered light should be enough so that the leaves have a bright green color, but they should not be burned. This species is rather easy to grow and will also cope well in the shade, however in such conditions there may be problems with obtaining flowering.

Temperature:

 The plant is thermophilic, but requires a cold rest period. In summer, the average day temperature is 28-29 ° C, night 16-17 ° C, with a daily amplitude of 12-13 ° C. The average winter temperature is between 26-27 ° C and at night 15-17 ° C, giving a diurnal difference of 10-12 ° C. In the rainy season the night air flowing down from the slopes of Mount Kinabalu is quite cold, so during the winter, a large temperature difference is recommended - the days should be warm and the night cool (even below 13 ° C).

Humidity:

 Because Gold of Kinabalu orchid rows naturally in the streams - it is necessary to provide a year-round high humidity. This orchid can grow in greenhouse, where moderate to warm conditions prevail, as well as high humidity ranging from 65-95%.

Substrate and growing media:

 Plants should grow in any loose, well-drained substrate that maintains moisture, but does not absorb. The addition of chopped sphagnum moss is preferred, especially when the plants are grown in places with low humidity. With age, the plant grows and its upper part becomes hard, so it is easier to deal with it, if it is planted in a heavy, quite flat, ceramic pot with a wide base.
 The addition of calcium in the substrate is very important because this species grows in the soil with a basic pH - the correct pH can be ensured by adding crushed shell to the substrate, which should replenished as they dissolve. Alternatively, you can add natural rock to the substrate, which is a crushed dolomite available in stores.
 To avoid the accumulation of mineral salts in the substrate, you should regularly rinse it. Once a month is good, first soaking the roots and the substrate, and then pour over the clean rainwater in the amount of double the volume of the pot.

Watering:

 The plant should often be watered with only slight drying between waterings. The substrate can never be stale or soggy.

Fertilizer:

 During active growth, the plants should be fertilized every week or every two weeks with 1/4-1/2 of the recommended dose of fertilizer for orchids, dissolved in a rainwater with a small addition of stagnant tap water. After this cooling, the night temperatures should then be raised to 16-17 ° C and the plants should bloom after 2-4 months.

Rest period and repotting:

 In winter, cultivated plants need less water regardless of the temperature they keep, especially if the light level is much lower than in summer, but the substrate should never completely dry out. Fertilization should be limited to one per month until new increments appear.
 Plants should be repotted as soon as the substrate begins to decompose. These plants need large amounts of water, so repotting may be necessary every year, especially when the composition of the substrate is a lot of sphagnum moss. Plants can be repotted at different times of the year, but it is best done in autumn or winter, which allows you to regain full form and root before summer heat.

Note:

 This plant is quite easy to care for, but difficult to bloom. New growths on a mature plant usually blossom in two years, and on a young plant, in order to reach maturity and bloom, they may need 4-5 years. Seedlings to bloom, sometimes it takes 10-12 years.
