Watering SpiranthesTenere asciutto
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. We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks .

Generalities Spiranthes
The ramifications of these plants tend to develop downwards. Spiranthes isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 45 cm in height. The Spiranthes develops like a shrub.

Exposure SpiranthesPosizione mezza ombra
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day. We suggest avoiding exposing orchids to direct sunlight, although they should be placed in a very bright location.The Spiranthes usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones.

Treatments Spiranthes
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.

Soil Spiranthes
These orchids need a soft and incoherent soils, which presents an optimal drainage.
