Cultural Tips

Now that the Spring Orchid Show is over, members who exhibited plants at the show should inspect their plants for any bruises or infection arising from mechanical damage and take precautionary action to ensure their plants remain healthy. Treat damaged plant parts with a fungicide or dust with cinnamon powder to prevent onset or spread of infection. Also, application of fertilizer to boost the plants and an insecticide as a precaution to get rid of any pests present should be done.
To all our members this is a good opportunity also to attend to plants requiring dividing and repotting as necessary in preparation for future monthly show tables and activities.
Attend to sprucing up plant labels and updating your orchid inventory records and where you have plants without identification this can be attended to by networking with other members at monthly meetings to assist with identification. The rainy season is due shortly and it is necessary to inspect all orchid plants so ensure the potting media are in good condition, otherwise take the wise step and repot now rather than risk the loss of the root system. Happy growing.
