How to properly care for recovering Orchids – Signs that say you’re doing good!

Today we tackle a subject that was suggested by one of my viewers recently, how to know we are doing well with recovering orchids!
▼▼▼More info below!▼▼▼

The most common problem we will all encounter with orchids is root loss, due to a reason or another. The best sign we can get is the production of new roots, here is how I like to promote new root production

The new roots need to be protected and encouraged to grow, by offering proper moisture, care with handling and prevention of pests!

How to spot snails and slug signs

Fertilization needs to be stopped white the new roots are forming and cannot absorb water. When they are formed and absorbing water, feeding should be done lightly and increased as the orchid grows and establishes.

With a bit of care any sick orchid, or rootless orchid, has a proper chance at being saved!
