Restrepia

Restrepia I like the article

Light RestrepiaPosizione luminosa
Let's locate the plants so that they can enjoy a good diffused brightness, but someplace where they are not directly hit by solar rays. We advise cultivating the the Restrepia in a covered place, in an apartment or green house, as they don't like temperatures below 15°C: during late Spring they can be moved outdoors.We suggest to leave this plant in a place where it is not directly exposed to solar rays, which might ruin its leaves; in any case it is best to choose a very bright spot.

Water RestrepiaTenere Umido
Watering by immersion is suggested for orchids: it consists in soaking the containers in water up to the edge, when the soil is moist let's take out the vases and let the excess water drain before putting them back in place. Let's wet abundantly with about 1-2 glasses of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 1-2 weeks .

Fertilize Restrepia
We suggest fertilizing periodically, every 20-25 days, using a specific fertilizer for orchids, to add to the irrigating water. Let’s avoid using fertilizers during the flowering period and leaving the fertilizer in direct contact with the roots.

Pests Restrepia
An insecticide treatment should be applied only if damaging insects have been seen on the plant; vaporizing the product we avoid spraying it on the flowers.

Mold Restrepia
These orchids prefer slightly humid soils.
