Welche Blume ist das nur? Geht euch das so, wenn ihr auf #pinterest DEN Brautstrauß entdeckt ihr aber eine Nelke nicht von einer Narzisse unterscheiden könnt? Und selbst ich erkenne nicht immer jedes Pflänzchen... Da kann ich euch nur die App von @picturethisai empfehlen! Einfach Foto machen oder hochladen und schon gibt es die Auflösung.
This is a photo of a Cymbidium I took at Kew Gardens last year!
This post will be about feeding Phalaenopsis orchids but this also applies to this one!
Feeding is fairly simple,
You can buy ones that you mix with water and you can also buy drip feeders.
Feeds you mix with water are harder to use because you don't often need to water orchids and when you do you often forget to feed them this way.
I prefer to use drip feeders. You just cut off the top and plonk it in the soil and voila, orchid fed!
The orchid will take what ever feed it needs within a time scale of 10-30 days. When that one is finished use another! The next one should last a bit longer as its taken what food it needs. Use these during the growing and blooming season which can be all year round for some!
Remember that orchids don't need watering very often in winter so feeding it isn't essential then.
You don't need to feed your orchid a great deal but when you feel like your orchid just isn't performing the way it should just pop to your local garden centre and give it a whirl!
They're usually around £1-£1.50 a drip feeder or a pack of five for £5, the water mix ones are often around £3.99. Baby Bio orchid food is best! If you decide you don't want baby bio always take a look at the NPK values on the back this will give you a better indication on the type of feed you'll be getting! #cymbidium#cymbidiumorchids#orchids#kewgardens#kew#orchidfestival#pink#feeding
