Features root system of the plant

Structure culture growth involves aerial roots, via which the orchid receives moisture from the air. In addition, extensive root system is involved in photosynthesis and is also designed to support the loose soil of a flower. However, be aware that the optimal number of roots should be 3-4 pieces. A lot of branched processes in orchids is not the norm, it is required to revise the rules of care for plants.

The root system is growing at an air shortage for the development of plants. Dense soil prevents air circulation in the roots and helps to stagnation of water in the soil. When the seals in the ground the roots begin to grow from the substrate, so prevents rotting of the root system. Eliminate bulky roots is not possible, but you can reduce the number of processes.

To reduce the number of roots of the flower is required to reduce watering frequency and prevent stagnation of moisture in the soil. Cause growths of roots in orchids can be correctly matched primer mixture. Suitable for a plant substrate is easy to drain. Potting soil you can buy ready-made or make up of the components.

In the selection of land for the flower takes into account the following parameters:

  • volume pot;
  • kind of orchid;
  • growth conditions (temperature, humidity levels);
  • flowering time.

As components for the soil may be used:

  • pine bark;
  • polystyrene;
  • expanded clay granules;
  • Coconut Fiber;
  • peat;
  • sphagnum moss;

Required drainage layer. Before transplanting flower root system was placed in water for 30-60 minutes. The procedure will improve the flexibility of the roots, will prevent their deformation during transplantation. Dried roots are required to clean up gradually, over time, will improve the appearance of the plant.

Terms of watering and fertilizing

Moisturize orchid soft warm water. Tap liquid required to uphold at least 1 day, distilled - used in conjunction with tap water in proportions of 1: 1. Watering is carried out after drying of the soil, often not recommended to irrigate plants. The optimal frequency of soil moisture - 1 per 1-1.5 weeks. Watering should be abundant moisture residues must flow freely through the drainage holes in the bottom. When standing water at a cool room temperature of the roots begin to rot. Fertilizing orchids should be moderate (1/3 standards for other flower crops). Fertilize the flowers is necessary during the growing season and flowering every 14 days. At the beginning of culture growth can be added to the soil nitrogenous compounds and phosphorous. After flowering in orchids soil fertilized with phosphorus, potassium and nitrogenous substances.

For normal plant development and formation of the root system is necessary to maintain a stable temperature. However, it takes into account the peculiarities of orchid varieties. Evergreen varieties can be grown by maintaining in the summer a temperature of about +20... + 28 ° C, winter - 15 +... + 18 ° C. the roots may be damaged at low temperatures. In winter, it is recommended to control the temperature regime in the sill, which may be below the standard index in the room. Under tubs or trays can be put proofing materials.

Important to choose containers for orchids. Versatile and practical plastic pots. More aesthetically pleasing and durable earthenware pots, natural material is breathable and moisture. Pots are optimal for the varieties that can withstand cool temperatures.
