All-natural premium soil mix for Orchids
- Improves drainage & aeration.
- For orchids & other epiphytes.
Orchids generally need to be re-potted once a year. It’s time to re-pot when you see: yellow foliage, lack of growth or blues, dead or damage roots, or the plant starts growing over the edge of the pot. The best time to re-pot is just after flowering, or when new growth appears.
For best results, pre-soak Espoma Organic Orchid Mix for 24 hours and allow to drain.
Remove orchid from current container.
Remove dead roots and trim active routes to 6 inches in length.
Fill container to one third full with orchid mix.
Position single stem plants in the center of the new pot. Position multi-stem plants against the pot wall. Staking may be required until the plants are fully established.
Add more mix to gently cover roots and fill pot to 1/2 inch below rim.
Water thoroughly. If setting occurs, add more mix.
