Sarcochilus

Sarcochilus I like the article

Irrigation SarcochilusTenere Umido
These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 1-2 glasses of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 1-2 weeks , when the soil is dry. 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.

Temperatures SarcochilusPosizione mezza ombra
For a balanced development of the The Sarcochilus , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. The Sarcochilus is grown at home or in a warmed green house; during the Spring it can be moved outside, but only if the mimimum temperatures are clearly mild.We suggest avoiding exposing orchids to direct sunlight, although they should be placed in a very bright location.

Care Sarcochilus
The Sarcochilus develops like a shrub. The ramifications of these plants tend to develop downwards. This plant in the winter assumes a pinkwhite colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 45 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.

Adversity Sarcochilus
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.

Substrate Sarcochilus
Locate in a soil for orchids, not too drained.
