The orchid is plain but not gorgeous, graceful and graceful, which is loved by the Chinese people and is called the "four gentlemen" with bamboo, chrysanthemum and plum. Planting an orchid bonsai at home can not only decorate the environment, but also improve your taste, which is very good, so how to transplant orchid bonsai? And avoid the occurrence of stuffy roots? Let's take a look at it together.

The considerations for orchid planting are as follows:

First, choose the right soil: in order to make the transplanted bonsai survive smoothly, when we choose soil, we must choose the bonsai suitable for orchid growth, because if we can not let the orchid bonsai adapt to the potted soil environment smoothly, it is very difficult to let the orchid survive, at the same time, it is also very easy to lead to the stuffy roots of orchids, leading to death.

Second, give proper moisture. Reasonable watering is necessary for orchids to survive. In order to successfully do a good job of watering, you can insert a stick into the flowerpot to help you judge whether watering is needed. If the stick has dry gray hair, it means that it needs to be watered. When watering, it is recommended that we use spray pots, avoid flushing with water, and cover the orchid basin with a plastic net to play a role of folding and fixing, so as to prevent water from washing out of the basin.

Third, put the bonsai under the appropriate light for cultivation. Orchids are very sensitive to light, generally it does not like strong light, so in the process of planting orchids or transplanting, it is necessary to choose a place with relatively soft light conditions for planting, which is conducive to the survival and growth of orchids.

Fourth, reasonable fertilization is very important for the growth of bonsai. Although the demand for fertilizer for orchids is not very great, but if you want orchids to grow well, you still need to give enough fertilizer, but what you need to pay attention to is that there is not too much fertilizer, and foliar fertilizer is generally recommended. You can add thin liquid fertilizer when spraying water.

The reasons for the stuffy roots of orchids are as follows:

First, for environmental reasons, some orchids are afraid that the orchids are weak after planting, so they move indoors for "careful" conservation. Who knows that orchids especially need fresh air at this time (another stage that especially needs fresh air is flowering). If you do not pay attention at this time, it will cause the emergence of stuffy root phenomenon, and seriously will lead to the death of orchids.

Second, plant material reasons, when planting worried that the root can not stick with the plant material, the plant material will be compacted vigorously, so that the air in the basin soil will be compressed, and the orchid root will have no air to breathe, so that the root will be stuffy.

The above are the matters needing attention for orchid transplanting and the causes of stuffy roots. if you want your orchids to grow well, you should understand some details when planting, and at the same time avoid the occurrence of stuffy roots. After all, stuffy orchids will directly affect the survival rate of orchids, which may cause orchids not to accept the pot and die.
