Fertilize Sobralia
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.

Cultivation Sobralia
These plants are shrubs. Sobralia Is an evergreen; during winter iIt assumes a yellowpinkwhite colouring; the adult specimens are medium in size and reach 60 cm high. Growing the stems and branches tend to develop downwards.

Water SobraliaTenere Umido
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. Water regularly, every 1-2 weeks , wetting the soil deeply with about 1-2 glasses of water ,but waiting for the substratum to dry completely between one watering and another; avoid leaving stagnant water.
