Ancistrochilus rothschildianus care and culture

Temperature:

 It is a thermophilic plant. Throughout the year, the average temperature during the day is 23-27 ° C, at night 17-18 ° C, which gives a daily difference of 5-10 ° C.

Humidity:

 Rothschild's Ancistrochilus needs the humidity of 85-90% from summer to autumn, decreases to 75-80% during winter and spring.

Substrate, growing media and repotting:

 It is recommended to use as a substrate a mixture of fine pine bark with the addition of approx. 10% charcoal and 10% perlite. Long rhizomes have a tendency to grow, therefore baskets, flat dishes or pots for bulb plants should be used as containers. This is especially important when growing a large, proliferated plant. The small depth of the container allows for quick drying, so the substrate will not thicken or break down. To improve the drainage, the containers are usually filled halfway with medium or large pieces of bark. After placing the plant in place, the container is completed with a fine bark or a mixture described earlier.

Watering:

 During the period of active growth, Ancistrochilus rothschildianus should be kept moist and not allowed to dry completely between waterings. However, when new growths reach maturity in the autumn, the amount of water should be gradually reduced.

Fertilizer:

 During the active growth, the plant should be fertilized every week 1/4-1/2 of the recommended dose of fertilizer for orchids. A fertilizer with a high nitrogen content is beneficial from spring to mid-summer, and a fertilizer richer in phosphorus should be used in late summer and autumn.

Rest period:

 In the 3-month winter period, the amount of water supplied to Ancistrochilus rothschildianus should be limited, but not eliminated completely. Then, between waterings, the plants should be allowed to dry almost completely. Regular watering begins in the spring when new growths appear. After the leaves have fallen, a completely dry resting period at 12 ° C is necessary. During dormancy, fertilization should be reduced or even completely eliminated and restarted in the spring.
