Orchid transplantation at home

Most recently, I bought an orchid that did notI did not want to get used to an ordinary plastic pot. Later it turned out that phalaenopsis roots were very sensitive to excess moisture in the container: gradually they began to rot.

Having searched all the forums of flower growers, I came across an unusual advice: Transplant an orchid In a wooden basket. I decided to conduct an experiment, and it turned out to be very successful! Shortly after the transplant, my orchid threw out a large flower spike, on which many buds appeared.

Orchid transplantation to the basket is an excellent compromiseBetween the plastic pot and the unit. The basket provides easy access of air to the roots and prevents their decay. To transplant the green beauty into the basket, follow this simple scheme!

Such a basket will look more decorative,Than a conventional plastic pot. I prefer to hang it on the line to the ceiling, this saves a precious place on the windowsill. Also the basket will be preferable for those kinds of orchids which start up the peduncles down through the thickness of the substrate (stan-gopei, coriantes, dracula).
