    When do I transplant my orchids? Help

    • Posted at 1:35 PM, April 23, 2015

      Hi Sandy!

      The best time to repot is after the plant has bloomed and is beginning a new growth cycle, a new leaf or a new root. An orchid should be repotted if the growth for the next cycle is climbing over the edge and out of the pot. As a practical matter, orchid roots that grow outside the pot have a tendency to get bumped and broken or to attach themselves firmly to the outside of the pot or to neighboring pots. To keep this kind of scraggly growth controlled, repot and position the orchid so that it can grow for a year or two before climbing out of the pot again. This information and more can be found at http://www.repotme.com. Although we grow orchids, they are never around long enough for us to have to repot them!

    I just got the most beautiful pink orchid as a gift. Please let me know the best lighting for the nightime. Can I leave the orchid in a dark room ever? Now that summer is approaching and the humidity is high how will that affect the pink orchid and should I give it special care? Must the orchid be in a sunny spot during the day at all times? Thanks for your help Also I cannot find OrchidMyst Can I use a general item like Miracle grow Orchid Spray?

      Mary, it is quite ok to leave the orchid in the dark. It does not require 24 hours of light. You can leave the orchid in a somewhat sunny spot. You need to be careful not to sunburn the orchid leaves. Since orchids are considered tropical plants, a bit of humidity is ok, that is how we grow them here in our greenhouse. Most important piece of information is not to over-water your orchid! Our orchids are grown in moss, which does not require as much water as orchids in bark. As far as using the Miracle Grow orchid spray, its not a question we can honestly answer as we do not use that product. Enjoy your Pink Lemonade!

      Colleen,

      You can try to Roche Bros or Mahoney’s Garden Centers in your area. They also take special orders.
