Orchid plant care and culture

 Orchids flowers are favored by consumers for their distinctive beauty and diverse forms. They have almost all the colors in the rainbow and the combinations of those colors. The smallest orchid flower is only a grain of rice, while the largest orchid is about 1 m in diameter. Here are some care tips and culture information for growing orchids, you can also see more about some genus, species, varieties and hybrids of orchid in lower parts of this post:
Orchid plant care and culture

How much light does orchid need? - Orchid light requirements:

 All plants need light to ensure photosynthesis. The orchids in cultivation must receive a lot of light, but never direct sun.
 A plant with herbaceous, thin or very watery leaves could be damaged by direct sun, with a sunny window it will be necessary to provide a tent that mitigates the sun's rays, also on the burns of the leaves could install pathogenic fungi.
 An orchid with thick and coriaceous leaves in general is a plant that lives in regions with a strong luminosity, this will support the sun in winter, will have to be placed high near the windows and slightly shaded in summer.
 If the leaves are dark green it is certainly a plant that in nature lives in shady areas so a window to the north will be ideal.
 The hours of light are also very important. If we do not have enough natural light, we will have to set up a system to increase the hours of light available, but we will not have to leave the lights on continuously, even in nature there is alternation night and day.

What is the ideal temperature for growing orchids - Temperature Requirements of Orchids:

 The orchids are divided into three large groups according to the needs of temperature: cold, temperate and warm orchids:
 The plants that are native to low altitudes (from the sea level to about 800 meters) and living in a warm and humid atmosphere, must be grown during the winter in a heated environment; the room cultivation must also ensure a high humidity with winter night temperatures of around 17-18 ° C.
 The species from 800 to 1500 meters will benefit from intermediate temperatures and adapt very well to the room cultivation if given them a temperature difference between day and night of at least 4-5 ° C. A too stable night and day temperature does not allow them to have an adequate flower induction and the vegetation will continue all year long without an adequate rest period, the recommended winter night temperature for these species is about 14-16 ° C.
 The species of the cold regions and those living at altitude require cooler temperatures. A slightly heated room will allow us to have the ideal temperature of around 10-14 ° C. Temperature variations between night and day are essential for good flower induction.

Why do orchids need a drop in nighttime temperature?

 During the day, yours orchids are busy converting light energy into chemical energy via photosynthesis, using the available light, carbon dioxide, water and nutrients. At night, yours orchids consume energy reserves in a process called respiration. Respiration is temperature dependent so less energy is consumed when nights are cooler, leaving the plant more energy to produce flowers.
 Many orchids require a significant day night temperature difference to induce flowering. Phalaenopsis for example, they require a 15 ° C drop in nighttime temperature for 2 or 3 weeks to initiate their flower spikes. Cymbidiums and Dendrobiums can require even larger temperature difference.

The relations between humidity and ventilation of orchids:

 Air movement and humidity must be in balance. In a low humidity environment, excess air movement will cause more evaporation and possibly results in dehydration of the orchid. In a high humidity environment, air movement is a must to prevent orchid disease problems.
 The ideal humidity is around 60% for orchids grown in pots, while those grown on the raft will benefit from a about 70% humidity. Keep in mind that the humidity is related to the temperature, the higher is, the greater the amount of water vapor that can be contained in the atmosphere. A too dry air stresses the plants, the roots dry, the leaves wilt and in the long run as well as compromising the flowering can also lead to the death of the plant.
 Plants do not have to live in an environment where the air is confined, open the windows of your culture room when the temperature permits and always provide a fan that ensures good air circulation, even if the plants love an environment damp the air must not be stagnant, a good circulation of air prevents diseases and rottenness.

How to grow an orchid in pots?

 A large number of orchids, both terrestrial and epiphytic, are adapted to be cultivated in pots, although this is an artificial environment with some simple precautions the cultivation in a container will have an excellent result.
What kind of pot should be used?
 The terracotta pots are rustic, aesthetic and heavy enough to give stability even to quite heavy plants. They are made of porous materials that allow rapid water transpiration. On the other hand, the terracotta vases also entail significant disadvantages: rapid transpiration causes a lowering of the temperature of the compound that if for some species that prefer the fresh around the roots can be an advantage, for most of the orchids this is harmful. The porous material of which it is composed absorbs the limescale of the water and the mineral salts of the fertilization this causes an excessive increase in salinity with consequent burning of the roots. It is difficult to provide adequate cleaning of used vessels. The roots of the epiphytic orchids attach themselves firmly to the walls of the terracotta vases, so during the repottings it is practically impossible to flare them without breaking them, even breaking the vase, with consequent damage to the plant. So we definitely prefer plastic jars. These are cheap, light, not very fragile, they can be re-used several times after an easy cleaning; the roots of the epiphytic orchids do not stick to the walls of the vase for which repotting operations are very facilitated, furthermore the plastic material prevents a too rapid drying of the compound with consequent cooling of the same. If you use saucers or pot holders, make sure that no water remains in contact with the pot, put gravel or clay marbles on the bottom so that the pot is lifted from any residual water and at the same time creates a certain amount of moisture.
What is the best growing media for orchid growing in pot?
 Only for some terrestrial orchids we can use soil, for all epiphytic orchids we will have to use substrates that retain moisture but leave plenty of air around the roots.
 Currently all the orchid substrates are based on pine bark with the addition of other materials in various percentages, the pine bark has the property to retain moisture without over-compacting, to last long enough without decomposing and leaving circulate the air at the root level. The size of the bark to be used for the repotting depends on the type of roots of our plants and the size of the used pots; for small pots it is necessary to use the finest size that we will use also for plants with thin roots, while for larger pots and for plants with large roots we will use a larger size. We do not use bark for mulching, this is generally obtained from firs with a lot of resin and sometimes collected in areas close to the sea so it can contain salt residues harmful to the roots and the size is generally too coarse, we also pay attention if we want to collect same the bark in the woods, this must not contain too much resin, must be well cleaned, that does not already start to decompose and that there are no hidden insects or snails. Even the substrates that are already ready for sale in the gardens usually contain a lot of peat and other materials that hold water for a long time with the risk of root rottenness.
 At the bark we can add other materials that, depending on their characteristics, can either retain a greater quantity of water or aerate our compounds. The materials that retain less water are: Pine bark, Coconut fiber (is a material that does not decompose easily, very used in Asia for cultivation), Charcoal (choose a product that is not impregnated with accelerators for combustion, these are toxic for orchids), Polystyrene (choose a non-colored product), Perlite (an industrial product used for insulation, retains about 40% of water, is neutral and aerates the compounds), Volcanic lava, ground rock (some growers use it to cultivate Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium). Materials that retain water are: Fibrous peat (when wet it takes a long time to dry, avoid too fine peat and enriched with fertilizers), Super (is a white moss that grows in swampy areas, is a vegetable from which the various types of peat derive).

How to grow an orchid as epiphytes?

 Epiphytic orchids must be cultivated in such a way that their conditions are as similar as possible to natural conditions. Numerous orchids can be grown in the home, with a minimum of care they will give us spectacular blooms.
 The best way is to install them on branches or pieces of bark, but this implies a culture environment that is adequate to their needs; humidity and brightness must be controlled and the possibility of wetting them regularly must be ensured. Not having a room dedicated to plants, many hobbyists are able to grow these plants in the bathroom or in the kitchen, two environments where humidity is normally higher than in the rest of the house.
 Another way is to cultivate the potted epiphytes, it is imperative that the used substrate is very aerated, the first cause of death of the orchids is too compact a compound this causes root asphyxia resulting in plant death.
 The cultivation on a support is certainly the most fascinating, it reminds us how the plant grows in nature, the roots that roam the air, the flowering stems that take their natural shape without the need for supports, mosses and lichens that share the support with orchids create a whole that evokes the natural environment of these plants.
 The plants of small size, those creeping or sagging, those that between one wetting and the other must dry quickly and that fear the stagnant humidity around the roots are definitely advantaged by this type of cultivation, the roots are visible and easily controllable, the plants assume a suitable position and the risk of stagnant water in the heart of the plant is avoided, it is no longer necessary to repot regularly and the mounted plants can remain on the same support for several years.
 However, this is not the miraculous solution, the plants must however be monitored and in periods of high heat the humidity and wetting must be more frequent: The support on which the epiphytic orchids are fixed must be of hard wood, it must last in a very wet environment several years; avoid very resinous coniferous woods; do not use wood fallen on the ground for a long time in the woods and that are already beginning to decompose, also avoid wood collected on the seashore because surely the salinity will be very high; do not use wood or freshly cut branches they must dry a few months to keep the bark well attached to the wood; the most suitable woods for this purpose are: acacia, oak, vines and other fruit plants and naturally cork bark, avoid wood with too smooth bark the small roughness allow the roots to stick strongly and the moisture finds room to penetrate and stay longer; we do not like the arboreal fern supports, widely used in tropical countries, because in addition to the high cost and the difficult finding, when it is soaked with water it dries very slowly and sometimes can cause damage to the roots; naturally the epiphytic orchids will be fertilized regularly, being watered very frequently the nutritive salts are washed out without danger of stagnation.

Why does orchid need repotting and when to do it? - Repotting:

 The orchid plant need repot because the plants have grown and come out of the pot, because the culture substrate is old the pieces of bark have decomposed the water is retained and it does not drain any more easily, there are accumulated fertilizers and mineral salts that make the acid and salty compound.
 Repotting is normally done in spring when the new vegetation begins, or at any time of the year if the roots have problems (rotten), or after flowering. Repot every 2-3 years even if the plant does not need to be repotted, if you do not increase the size of the pot, replace only the old substrate, a frequent repotting keeps the plants healthy.

How to water an orchid? - Watering requirements:

 It is impossible to say how often you must water a plant, there are many factors that determine the frequency of watering; the recommendation, in general, is to wet well only when the mixture is dry. The frequency and abundance of waterings are not the same for terrestrial orchids and epiphytes, the latter do not have the reserve of water that have available orchids cultivated in pots for which they will be watered much more frequently. Always inform our suppliers of the needs of the plants purchased, in some cases they love to have their roots in the water A good way to determine when it is time to water an orchid is to weigh the pot: when it is heavy, we do not have to give more water because it is already present in the substrate, when the pot is light means that all the water has evaporated and therefore it is time to water, if we are not sure of the weight of the vase we wait another day it is better not to overdo the water.

Is the quality of water important when growing orchid?

 The quality of the water is very important. The rainwater that filters in the subsoil is enriched with calcium carbonate (CaCo3). Calcium (Ca) is essential for human and plant organisms. Calcium is present in the cell walls of the orchids, promotes the stiffness of the stems and intervenes in the ripening of the fruits and seeds. A limestone-rich water is defined as hard, while the limestone-rich water is called sweet. The water too hard or too sweet is harmful for the cultivation of orchids. The excess of limestone (CaCo3) causes an unattractive whitish deposit on the leaves of the plants and prevents the transpiration and absorption of water from the leaves also damages the velamen of the roots. Too sweet water causes yellowing of the ends of the leaves and the appearance of black spots on the edges of the leaves.
 If we use water for rain water or reverse osmosis water, always add a small amount of fertilizer. Be very careful if you use a domestic water softener that does not give away sodium to water because it is very harmful.
 Another very important parameter is the pH of the water. The pH indicates the acidity or alkalinity of the water, measured on a scale from 0 to 14; a value of 7 indicates a neutral water, above it indicates a calcareous water while underneath an acidic water, naturally the closer we get to the extremes of the scale the more alkalinity or acidity increases. The ideal pH for growing orchids is around 6 or 6.5. If rainwater is collected, it is necessary to avoid collecting the first rain after a long period of drought, this will certainly be full of polluting agents and very acidic. Also keep it in a dark container otherwise algae and other unwanted organisms will proliferate.

How to fertilize an orchid? - Fertilization:

 Growing orchids generally do not provide many nutrients as they are quite inert; therefore the plants will surely benefit from a regular fertilization. It is therefore necessary for their growth and flowering to make necessary mineral elements. The nitrogen for the growth of the new vegetations the roots and the leaves. Phosphorus for flowering. Potassium for plant tissues and protection against diseases.
 It is also necessary that our fertilizers contain a right dose of trace elements. Look for specific fertilizers for orchids because they are normally composed of pure, very soluble raw materials, which do not crystallize again when the mixture returns to dry. Respect the doses indicated and not fertilized with too dry compounds, possibly wet before fertilizing. The fertilizer will be given by watering the orchids grown in pots while for the epiphytes will be added to the water of the vaporizations. Plants will not be fertilized during their rest period.
 We must use fertilizers with a higher percentage of nitrogen in the period of maximum growth, spring and summer; while in the period where the growth is slower we will use fertilizers with the various elements in equal percentages, there are also fertilizers for the flowering period where the percentages of phosphorus and potassium are higher; every 6-8 weeks it is also good.

Does orchid need a rest period?

 Plants have a life cycle that includes periods of growth, flowering, fructification and rest, in many cases they are related to seasonal cycles. During the rest period, the plants slow down their vital activities, which reduces the need for water and nutrients and in some cases also heat, but they always need lightness. In many cases the rest period favors flowering induction.
 Some orchids, like the Phalaenopsis, do not need any rest and their growth continues throughout the year; others, like some types of Dendrobium, require very marked and prolonged rest periods; some species of orchids completely lose their leaves during the rest period. In any case, the pseudobulbs should not dehydrate so that light wetting or spraying may be necessary and it is good to maintain a good environmental humidity with a good brightness. At the end of the rest period we do not have to restart the wetting until the new vegetation begins and this will also be the period for any repotting before the plants emit the new roots that will be very fragile and could be damaged by late repottings.
