Feed Thelymitra
Orchids are plants which request periodic fertilization, using specific products for orchids, which usually aren’t too rich: it is recommendable to avoid leaving fertilizing solutions on the roots. Usually orchids should be fertilized every 20-25 days, interrupting fertilization during flowering.

Irrigation ThelymitraTenere asciutto
Let’s water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. 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 ThelymitraPosizione mezza ombra
We suggest avoiding exposing orchids to direct sunlight, although they should be placed in a very bright location. For a balanced development of the the Thelymitra , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.The Thelymitra can't tolerate freezings, therefore it is best to grow it in a cold green house or in an apartment; during late Spring we can place them outside, when all risks of freezings are unprobable.

Adversity Thelymitra
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 Thelymitra
These orchids need a soft and incoherent soils, which presents an optimal drainage.

Seeing the quite contained development it’s possible to grow these plants in a container. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
