1. Controlling water and stopping fertilizer
Crab claw orchid is particularly sensitive to water at flowering stage, which is easy to drop buds, and seriously makes rootstocks rot roots and lead to plant death; lack of water is easy to make flowers wilt and buds can not develop and mature. The correct method is: keep the basin soil in a slightly wet state, it is appropriate to pinch it by hand, and spray with the same water as the indoor temperature at noon every day, so that you can get twice the result with half the effort. If the basin soil is too dry, it can not be watered at once, but can be watered step by step. Too much watering at one time will make the plant drop buds and stems.
Crab claw orchid likes fertilizer, and its growth period can be fertilized according to the principle of frequent application of thin fertilizer, but generally speaking, fertilization should be stopped when the bud is basically formed. Fertilization during this period can easily lead to plant buds falling.
Second, heat preservation and gloss enhancement
Crab claw orchid likes the warm environment, the indoor temperature should be kept between 14-20 ℃ in winter, the flower bud can not develop normally if the temperature is too low, if it is lower than 5 ℃ for a long time, it is easy to make the plant die from freezing injury, the temperature is too high, and it is easy to shorten the flowering period.
Although the crab claw orchid is a short-day plant, it is necessary to strengthen the light during the flowering period. It should be placed on the south windowsill with plenty of light as far as possible indoors, and the flowerpot should be turned every seven days in order to make the plant grow flowers evenly. If the indoor light is seriously insufficient or continuous cloudy days, fluorescent lamps can be used to make up the light. The method is to turn on the lights every evening for 3-4 hours to make the flowers bloom normally.
