Odontoglossum

Fertilization Odontoglossum
Orchids are plants which request periodic fertilization, using specific products for orchids, which usually aren’t too rich: it is recommendable to avoid leaving fertilizing solutions on the roots. Usually orchids should be fertilized every 20-25 days, interrupting fertilization during flowering.

Generalities Odontoglossum
The Odontoglossum develops like a shrub. This plant in the winter assumes a purpleredpinkwhite colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 60 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The ramifications of these plants tend to develop downwards.

Watering OdontoglossumTenere Umido
To moisten the soil of the orchids homogenously we can water them by immersion, soaking the vases up to the edge in demineralized water, and leaving it until the top part of the substratum is moist; let's drain the excess water and then put the containers back in place. We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 1-2 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 1-2 weeks .

Treatments Odontoglossum
If we notice the presence of cochineals or of other insects we can practice a treatment based on mineral oil or other insecticide, being careful to vaporize only the foliage.

Soil Odontoglossum
Locate in a soil for orchids, not too drained.
