Can orchids be cultivated in plastic pots: Yes, the material of the pots should match the environmen

Now there are only a few materials for flowerpots, such as ceramics, glass, ceramic tiles and plastics. Some flower lovers are very particular about the material of flowerpots, especially when breeding some precious flowers and plants. Now let's talk about whether orchids can be cultivated in plastic flowerpots.

Can orchids be cultivated in plastic pots? Of course, plastic pots can be used to raise orchids. No matter what kind of orchid pots are made of, good orchids can be cultivated as long as they are used properly. The proper use here needs to be judged according to the actual situation of their own orchid cultivation. For example, the black orchid basin can be used indoors, but there is a problem when it is put on the balcony. Because the black one absorbs heat quickly in summer, it is suitable to burn roots, so the basin needs to match the environment and planting materials.

Let's take a look at the advantages of using plastic pots to raise orchids

(1) Time saving and labor saving: when I choose the plastic orchid basin, I also choose the fine planting materials (xihesha 10 fine cork wood 10 fine brick), water once, more than one month in winter, and water once every ten days and a half months in spring, summer and autumn. Thus greatly reducing the workload and labor intensity.

(2) The humidity in the basin is the same: it is not as wet inside and dry outside in two days, and the roots near the basin wall are not empty, and the time of "moistening" in the basin is relatively long.

(3) Light and sanitary: the plastic basin is light in weight and consistent in size. Put on the blue rack, the pressure is small, easy to place and the basin body does not produce alkali, it looks very clean and sanitary.

(4) Easy to grow roots and seedlings: the plastic basin is good for keeping warm, and it is effective for the growth of orchid roots in winter and early spring, so that the cymbidium sprouts early, has more grass, grows fast, and generally does not sprout. Of course, everything is divided into two parts, and there are both advantages and disadvantages. Such as the problem of plant material drainage, site ventilation, summer shade cooling and other issues must not be ignored.

Raising orchids in plastic pots

Points for attention in orchid culture

1. The environment of orchid cultivation should be well ventilated, moist and pollution-free. Orchid basin should choose high basin. Upper thick and lower thin, with many drainage holes, or basin wall with drainage holes.

2. In orchid cultivation, the withered and yellow old leaves and diseased and diseased leaves should be cut off continuously to facilitate ventilation. After the flower buds are unearthed, one strong flower bud should be left for each plant, and the rest should be cut off to avoid consuming too much nutrients and affecting the flowering in the next year. After the flower withers, the flower stalk should be cut off.

3. In the hot season, watering should be done after sunset in the evening to prevent the water on the leaf surface from being burned by the sun, and prevent the high temperature water from soaking the tender part of the lower part of the new bud.

4. In the cold season, watering should be carried out in the daytime, so as to prevent the water in the basin from frostbite the orchid roots at night, especially avoid the accumulation of water in the orchid heart, which is easy to rot the young plants.

5. When there are disease spots on the leaves of orchid plants, the leaves should be kept dry to prevent the spread of pathogens.

6. Be careful not to water too often. Orchid tolerance of water is very large, is relatively drought tolerant plants, slightly dry little impact. On the contrary, if it is wet, it will cause suffocation after 24 hours of ponding. In daily cultivation, the vast majority of people use too much water and water too often, causing root rot and plant death.
