Proper orchid transplant

An emergency transplant is needed only if the root system has outgrown the pot, the roots have begun to rot, the ground has turned to dust or pests such as snails, slugs, centipedes, ticks and others have been found.
For a transplant to be successful, it is important to choose the right time for it. Simpodial orchids need to be replanted when new shoots appear. In this case, it is important to get ahead of their root system. Monopodial orchids undergo planned transplantation when green shoots appear at the roots.
The best time for a transplant is in the spring months. It is during this period that the new growth of leaves begins, and the spring sun smoothes the stress of the plant. For no apparent reason, you should not disturb the orchid from September to February.
Before transplanting the plant must be well dried. This is because during the procedure, the root system will inevitably be damaged, and dry wounds heal faster.If the plant is difficult to remove from the tank, you can slightly moisten the soil, but before planting it in a new pot, it should dry well for 8 hours.
Check the old soil for pests. If they are found, soak the flower in water for several hours. After this procedure, most pests will die. Remove rotten and dead roots with disinfected scissors. Cut the cut areas with charcoal to protect against rot.
New 1/3 pot fill drain. Plant the plant and sprinkle with new primer. After transplanting an orchid can not be watered for 5 hours. Only spraying leaves is allowed.
