How to tame a obstinate orchid (part 2)

Oncidium
A very bright orchid, which in the form of its flowers has preserved the features of wild orchids. It blooms approximately every 8 months with flowering for about 1.5 months. The plant forms pseudobulbs, which means that this orchid is easier to pour than to dry.

The love of orchids and their tropical origin should not mislead you. In most cases, orchids are sufficient to water about once a week. It is better to water the orchid by immersion in water or by the method of showering, while the first method is much simpler and more reliable. A pot of orchid is immersed in a container with rain or other soft water so that the substrate is well saturated with moisture (no more than 20-30 minutes). If you are lucky and your tap water is not hard and suitable for taking care of indoor plants, then you can even turn the plants under the tap or soak an earthen clod with a shower, but remember that the water should never be cold. As soon as the water completely saturates the substrate, carefully remove the container on a stand or pan and let all excess water drain (it should not stagnate around the roots of orchids and remain in the pan).
