"Aminosole for orchids" - a liquid organic fertilizer with a full complex of amino acids
Today, one can hardly surprise anyone with a blooming orchid - many flower growers have learned to successfully grow this tropical miracle, and stores regularly delight customers with new varieties and species of this plant. And now not only phalaenopsis - the most popular and perhaps the only once orchids, but also dendrobiums, cymbidiums, paphiopedilum and many other varieties adorn our homes, apartments and offices.
What conditions need to create an orchid in the house?
Buying a blooming orchid, lovers of exotic plants are wondering - will it bloom at home as well and should you expect it to bloom again? Everything will be - and grow, and bloom, and delight for many years, but on one condition. The orchid must provide the right conditions and care.
As for any houseplants, for an orchid, you must initially try to create conditions suitable for growth and development. Adequate lighting, humidity and air temperature, a special substrate are the main points that you need to pay attention to.
Many orchids, in particular phalaenopsis, are epiphytic plants in nature, that is, they do not grow in the soil, but are attached by aerial roots to the trunks and branches of other plants. Such specimens are fed with the help of roots, which extract all the necessary substances from crevices of the cortex, where organic debris accumulates. The roots of such orchids are green, as they participate in photosynthesis.
When growing, you need to take into account this feature of them - the pot should be transparent and have good drainage holes not only at the bottom, but also on the walls. Instead of soil, a substrate is prepared from bark, moss, vermiculite, which fills the space between the roots.
As for lighting, you need to consider where orchids grow in nature - in hot sunny regions, but in the diffused shade of trees. Orchids cannot tolerate direct sunlight on leaves and flowers. Place them on the western windowsill or near the "southern" window inside the room. On the eastern and northern windows, orchids, for sure, will miss the light.
Care for indoor orchids
Despite the sophistication and beauty of flowers, caring for an orchid is not an insurmountable task. Orchid is a flowering plant, and some species bloom for quite a long time, from several weeks to several months. Proper watering, optimal humidity and regular top dressing - that's all you need to provide an orchid in the house for long flowering.
The orchid is watered only with warm, settled water. Tap water containing chlorine can kill the plant. In order not to overfill the orchid and water it enough, it is best to take the plant out of the pot during watering and place it in water for half an hour. The orchid will take as much water as it needs.
The optimum humidity for the well-being of the orchid is 40-60%. To increase humidity, in the warm season, the space around the flowers is sprayed with warm water from a spray bottle. In this case, you must ensure that the water does not stagnate in the depths of the leaves. With a decrease in air temperature in the room, orchid spraying should be stopped.
In the care of orchids, it is very important to provide them with a permanent place in the house. Simply put - do not tolerate!
And in order to give plants all the vital nutrients, you need to regularly fertilize. Orchids are fed throughout the year, excluding the dormant period - the time when the plant is resting from flowering and gaining new strength.

Given the characteristics of the substrate for orchids, root dressing is best done by immersion - dilute the drug in containers slightly larger than the pot and put the container with the flower in a fertilizer solution for 20-30 minutes. After the procedure, put the pot on a wire rack or napkin so that all excess liquid is glass, and you can put it back in place. With this method, the roots of the plant are guaranteed to receive all the necessary elements.
With foliar top dressing, the solution is poured into a spray bottle or sprayer and the orchid leaves are moistened, preventing the solution from getting on the flowers.
