Orchid maintenance – Yellowing leaves and pseudobulbs, how & when to remove
Today I take you along as I remove some yellowing leaves and pseudobulbs on my orchids!
🦋 More info below! 🦋
Generally speaking, most orchids will lose the very old structures at some point, as new ones are more efficient at what they do than older structures. Sometimes we don’t need to intervene, but just let the orchid behave naturally.
Sometimes leaves can be damaged, case in which we might need to remove them and make the orchid look pretty again! This will prevent loss of leaves and other structures and keep the orchid healthy.
