The flowering period of crab claw orchid is very long. Generally, flower buds begin to grow in autumn, begin to blossom at the end of autumn, bloom in winter, and end in spring next year. But after all, it is an evergreen plant, and if the growth environment is always suitable, it will inhibit growth and even blossom all the year round.

But usually after the end of flowering in spring, after a period of time, the plant will resume growth and begin to sprout. However, some potted friends encountered their own potted crab claw orchid in the spring after the end of flowering, unexpectedly appeared not to sprout. So, what about.

The crab claw orchid should cut off the poor and undergrown old leaves in time after the flower fade in spring, which can reduce the consumption of nutrients and make the nutrition more concentrated, thus promoting the germination of new buds and the growth of new leaves. In this way, when the first leaf of crab claw orchid grows full, it will grow the second leaf.

If we are reluctant to prune or not pruned in time, these leaves will continue to consume nutrients, resulting in excessive dispersion of nutrients, which will inhibit the germination of new buds and the growth of new leaves to a certain extent. Therefore, we must cut off some leaves with low ornamental value and poor growth state in time after flower fade, so as to promote the germination of new buds.

However, the nutrients saved by leaf cutting alone are after all very limited, because the plant consumes a lot of nutrients at the previous flowering stage. Therefore, in order to promote the germination of new buds and the growth of new leaves, in addition to pruning, we also need timely topdressing to ensure that there are sufficient nutrients in the basin.

After pruning the stems and leaves and waiting for the wound to condense and dry, we will bury a little sheep dung into the basin along the edge of the inner wall of the basin. If there is no sheep dung on hand, we can also apply compound fertilizer, about 20 tablets. But the premise is that the plant has not yet entered the dormant period, although the flowers have faded, but they are still growing.
