Fertilization Urn orchid
Let’s avoid fertilizing our orchids during flowering; during the spring let’s act every 20-25 days, using a specific fertilizer, avoiding to leave fertilizing solutions in direct contact with the roots for too long.

Watering Urn orchidTenere Umido
Water regularly, every The , wetting the ground deeply with 1-2 glasses of water , always waiting for the soil to be dry before watering; avoid leaving stagnant water. Orchids in general favour a pretty moist soil; to water correctly it is advisable to water these plants by immersion, therefore soaking the containers in water up to the edge; when the water has reached the top part of the substratum we can take out the vases and let the excess water drain well.

Exposure Urn orchidPosizione mezza ombra
These plants prefer very bright places, but we should avoid direct sunrays, especially during the hottest days of the year. For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Urn orchid in a partially shady place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.We suggest growing the the Urn orchid In the house or in a warmed greenhouse; when the minimum temperatures go past 15°C it is possible to move them outside.
