Month Orchid Growing Healthy

The beauty of orchids in it no doubt. Thanks to its beauty, the butterfly orchid incarnated as a prima donna nickname orchid business in Indonesia. But what would happen if these orchids will not bloom or only bloom once, and after that "cranky" is no longer flowering. Feelings of anger and disappointment will ampur mixed together.
Another problem arises, when no flowers, orchids months we do not radiate beauty as expected. His condition seemed quite fresh and healthy at the roots, stems, leaves or flowers. All that comes from the way a less appropriate treatment.
"What about caring for orchids in the same way we take care of Dendrobium?." There are some things we need to know that plants need to grow fresh and healthy.
As plants epiphytes, orchids months of his life in the wild is always hampered by the branch or branches. "Orchid species only the intensity of the sun takes approximately 20 to 50 percent." Excess light will damage the plants orchids
. Symptoms of burning will be seen mainly in the leaves exposed to direct sunlight. Symptoms are usually marked with reddish brown liquid on the surface of the leaf.
less light, the influence on the growth of orchids in a not good. Leaves will wilt, yellow, pale and fell. "To get the low light, shade nets paranet pairs,". Or, just stick to orchids on a large tree trunk and place it in the east. Good morning sun for growth.
Orchid has a relative humidity (humidity ratio) is high, ie 60 to 80 percent. But the beautiful flowering orchids are not like the air is too wet. If too humid air will trigger bud rot disease and leaf. Orchids grow well in temperate 13 degrees Celsius to 18 degrees Celsius at night and 18 degrees Celsius to 21 degrees Celsius (day).
Orchid just sucks the moisture not to inhale water to maintain soil moisture using a natural way with the surrounding area membahasi
Orchid month will grow best when water needs provided for. The frequency of watering and the amount given depends on the type and size of plant size and environmental conditions, ". Plants that are actively growing obviously need more water than they already flowering orchids.
The water should contain minerals, pH neutral and is available throughout the year. In addition to regulating the process of photosynthesis, water can also regulate the temperature conditions.
Usually watering at least made orchid months twice a day. Once dry, the frequency of three times plus. Ideally,watering done in the morning around 09.00 and 07:00 until 16:00-18:00 (afternoon).
Problem watering right, now see the rules in the cultivation of orchids. There are many ways cultivate orchids. Fertilization is now mostly done through the leaves,
Because the leaves can absorb about 90% of the fertilizer, the roots absorb only 10%. In addition, the nutrients in the manure will be faster through the network to leave the body through a vein or cuticle.
NPK fertilization using nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). With the concentration of N of about 60%. Stepping young age, given a fertilizer plant with a concentration of N: P: K is comparable to 30 percent.
Already flowering period, the element P dominance changed to 60%.
Perform replacement planting media on a regular basis to maintain growth and optimum flowering orchids month. Also useful eliminate ants gnawing pests tunas.Untuk accelerate flowering orchids can be done in various ways. Name the day of treatment, low temperature, giving substance to grow and control the light intensity settings are most important.

Time for three years, said Destario, required to perform various scientific measures for this orchid species, including the identification process to ensure that the orchids species are different from relatives in the same genus.

According to him, now is the time to introduce to the public within the country of origin of new species of Indonesia.

Abroad, PLANTS use as an ornamental plant is very popular, even hundreds of hybrid has been produced which would increase the variation pattern bag that has a unique ada.Kantong Semar addition, it also has other benefits that can be used as traditional medicine.
