Can a broken Orchid new growth be saved? | Potting 4 Zygopetalums in one go!
Today we repot 4 new Zygopetalum orchids and we find very interesting things to show!
🦋 More info below! 🦋
I recently received some new orchids from my viewer Veronica and I finally have some new Zygopetalum varieties in my collection!
One of them has a broken new growth, which separated from the mother plant. Being that there is a root on the small rhizome, there are chances to save it! Here is another similar case with a Cattleya orchid https://youtu.be/Zv_0fRBw2jU
Recently I seem to be doing quite well with Zygopetalums, so I am up for having more variety in my collection 😀 see my community repotting https://youtu.be/RiPgfkhWfGw
