4. Replace the pot
It is very important to choose the right capacity in which the orchid will grow. Most often, orchids in indoor conditions are grown in plastic pots. It is very important that these pots are transparent, which makes it possible to observe the presence of moisture in it and the dryness of the soil.

But it also happens that the orchid does not want to take root in such a pot. Even orchids of the same species often have individual characteristics and require a different approach. For example, the roots of some plants can be especially sensitive to an excess of moisture, poor evaporation and insufficient ventilation of the roots in the plastic; they rot there.

In this case, try transplanting the orchid in a wooden perforated basket with wicker walls. This is a great compromise between a plastic pot and a block. Numerous holes in the basket provide excellent air circulation to the roots, which will save them from damage.
Read about the rules for planting orchids on the block in our article Rules for planting orchids on the block and in the substrate.

5. Check the composition of the fertilizer
Carefully select the composition of the fertilizer. The best mixtures for orchids are mixtures that stimulate the formation and growth of strong flowers. These are fertilizers based on potassium and phosphorus.

6. Give the orchid time to adapt
You just bought your orchid with beautiful flowers, but at home the plant began to drastically lose flowers and buds? Then this is probably a reaction to altered living conditions. This may be due to insufficient sunlight or altered quality of water and fertilizing.

Let your orchid get used to new conditions, observe it, changing its location in your house, choosing an individual watering regime and maintenance temperature.

Most importantly, remember that most types of orchids that you can purchase on retail chains are hybrids, and you can never say anything categorically specific about them. Each plant has its own unique characteristics and, accordingly, requires an individual approach to its content.

Observe each plant, communicate with it, select the optimal conditions for each flower in your house and then it will turn into a beautiful tropical garden. Good luc!
