Potting Substrate for Orchids

A quality substrate is essential for the well-being and prosperity of orchids.

By providing an optimal growth medium, a good substrate allows roots to breathe, effectively drains excess water, and maintains a balance between moisture and aeration.

Orchids have specific substrate requirements due to their epiphytic growth habits. An appropriate substrate promotes root health, encourages flowering, and reduces the risk of rot.

Carefully selecting the right substrate contributes to creating an ideal environment for your orchids, ensuring their sustainable flourishing.

Repotting Tips:

  1. Choose the Right Time: Repot orchids when they show signs of outgrowing their current pot or when the substrate has degraded.

  2. Select the Proper Substrate: Use a well-draining orchid mix containing materials like bark, sphagnum moss, and perlite. Avoid using regular potting soil.

  3. Inspect the Roots: Gently remove the orchid from its current pot and examine the roots. Trim damaged or rotting roots with sterilized tools.

  4. Choose a Suitable Pot: Select a pot that offers sufficient space for the orchid's roots to grow. Ensure it has drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.

  5. Position the Orchid: Place the orchid in the new pot, spreading the roots evenly. The base of the stem should be slightly above the substrate level.

  6. Fill and Pack: Fill the pot with the chosen substrate, gently pressing it to settle around the roots. Water lightly to help further settle the substrate.

  7. Allow Adaptation: After repotting, place the orchid in a shaded area for about a week to help it adapt to its new environment.

  8. Remember, proper repotting with the right substrate enhances the overall health of your orchid and contributes to its successful growth and flowering.
