For soilless cultivation of Cymbidium, we should pay attention to the following:

First, the cultivation substrate.

Peat, vermiculite, ceramsite and perlite can be used, among which the ideal effect is ceramsite and perlite.

Second, with nutrient solution.

The formula of our own nutrient solution is that each liter of water contains 68.5 mg of potassium dihydrogen phosphate, 236 mg of calcium nitrate, 132 mg of ammonium sulfate, 246 mg of magnesium sulfate and 174 mg of potassium sulfate. You can also choose and buy soilless cultivation nutrient solution or special nutrient solution of Magnolia in the market, and dilute it with cold boiled water according to the prescribed multiple.

Third, select seedlings to wash roots.

Take those exuberant and well-shaped Cymbidium plants out of the flowerpot, shake off the host soil, do not hurt the roots of the crops, soak them in water close to the ambient temperature, wash the roots, and pick off the rotten roots at the same time, and then soak its roots in a nutrient solution that has been configured for 8 to 12 hours, so that it can absorb nutrients.

Fourth, plant it in the pot.

Choose a deeper plastic basin or ceramic basin, put a layer of thick plastic sheet on the bottom of the basin, first pad 2 cm to 5 cm thick ceramsite soaked in water, and then fill in a layer of moist perlite about 2 cm to 5 cm thick. Slightly compacted. Put the orchid across into a large flowerpot, add wet perlite to the crop roots, hold the roots in both hands and gently place them in the basin, try not to drop the perlite wrapped between the roots, and then fill the wet perlite from around it. When the flowerpot is 80% full, you only need to bury it to the root neck. Add a layer of ceramsite to it to avoid losing perlite particles when adding water or watering nutrient solution or producing ugly green algae on the surface of the substrate due to the sun. Put a shallow plate on the bottom of the flowerpot to avoid water seepage.

Fifth, add nutrient solution.

After the planting of the orchid plant is completed, the prepared nutrient solution can be irrigated until the water seeps out from the drainage hole at the bottom of the basin, while spraying some water on the leaf surface.
