Exposure AerangisPosizione luminosa
The Aerangis needs a minimum temperature superior to 15°C, during this time of the year it is best to check the night temperatures before setting it outside. We suggest avoiding exposing orchids to direct sunlight, although they should be placed in a very bright location.Let's place the The Aerangis in a very bright spot; but avoiding its exposure to direct solar rays, which could damage its leaves.

Generalities Aerangis
The Aerangis develops like a shrub. This plant in the winter assumes a pinkwhite colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 40 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The ramifications of these plants tend to develop downwards.

Fertilization Aerangis
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.

Watering AerangisTenere Umido
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 . 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.

Treatments Aerangis
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 Aerangis
Locate in a soil for orchids, not too drained.
