What to do to make an orchid start to bloom? This question is probably asked by many owners of colorful orchids. As it turns out, there is a phenomenal way to do it.
Orchids delight with a large range of colors of their flowers and elegant appearance. However, you need to remember that they are quite demanding plants that need proper care. If you provide them with the right conditions for growth, they will certainly repay you with a multitude of stunning flowers.
How to Stimulate Orchids to Bloom?
Sometimes, despite the efforts put in, orchids do not want to bloom by any means. Do not write them off then, but use a simple trick, which a Swedish woman boasted on the Internet. Take a transparent vase and half-fill it with water. Then gently remove the orchid from the pot and thoroughly clean its roots. A toothbrush will come in handy for this purpose.
Then put the flower in the vase with water. Place the plant in a fairly sunny place. Regularly change the water in the vase to prevent it from becoming cloudy. After a few days you will discover amazing results. Your orchid will sprinkle with beautiful flowers. Then you can already put it into its permanent pot.
Remember that it is best to pour distilled water or ordinary rainwater into the vase. It is important that it is neither extremely cold nor hot.
Garlic Fertilizer for Orchids
Garlic fertilizer added to orchids, will strengthen their flowers and contribute to a longer flowering period. Using water with garlic will also contribute to the elimination of harmful bacteria and fungi, as well as strengthen the immunity of the plant. All thanks to the sulfur compounds that are contained in the garlic shell and its flesh.
All you need to do is boil 1 liter of water and let it cool. Once the water is lukewarm, put 3 garlic cloves (peeled or not) into the pot. Close the vessel tightly and leave it for 24 hours.
Then “soak” the orchids by taking them out of the pot and placing them in a casing in this very concoction.
