5 Simple Steps For Watering Young Orchids

plants need water to growOkay, first of all, a friend pointed out that aparently my writing style is not what is “common sense” in the blogging world. Most people seem to want short and pregnant chunks of information instead of reading someone’s brabbeling and pulling out the pieces of information. Well, if viewed from the perspective of my visitors it is probably right – I tend to talk alot. 😉 So I will try a different writing style with short pieces of easily consumable pieces of advices for you! Okay, on with 5 Simple Steps For Watering Young Orchids!

  1. First of all, check the moisture of the growing medium – is watering necessary?
  2. Prepare a container with water
  3. Then, carefully lift the young orchid together with the growing medium out of its pot.
  4. Holding the orchid over the sink, pour on water until the growing medium is nicely soaked – orchids need lots of water!
  5. The trick is to let the overage of water run into the sink.

If you follow these simple steps it is almost sure that your young orchids delicate roots don’t rot because all the water is held by the growing medium and can easily be consumed by the plant. Most people just pour on water while the orchid is still in the pot – that way the overage of water stays and can lead to root damage.
