Sophronitis

Sophronitis I like the article

Light SophronitisPosizione 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 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.We advise cultivating the The Sophronitis 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.

Fertilize Sophronitis
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.

Cultivation Sophronitis
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Sophronitis has a shrub- like development. The Sophronitis Is medium in size; in winter it assumes a orangeredwhite colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.

Water SophronitisTenere asciutto
Water sporadically, with 1-2 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks . 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.

Pests Sophronitis
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 Sophronitis
Let’s prepare a soft and incoherent soil for these plants, which has an excellent drainage.
