Orchid Q&A#38 – Aspirin for Orchids, yellow leaf edges, Vanda winter care & more!

Today, as promised, a bonus episode of the Q&A as the last one was split in 2 parts due to length 😛
▼▼▼More info below!▼▼▼

My Vanda orchids are getting much less fertilizer this time of the year, since they grow slow. It is rather cool in the grow room, so watering is reduces as well. Other than that there is no major difference in winter.

Phalaenopsis orchids are not treated any different while in spike or bloom, I don;t even cut fertilizer. They have continuous growth so they require no break!

Dendrobium Phalaenopsis are very warm growing orchids, cold temperatures are not really to their liking. Here is my Dendrobium Phalaenopsis care tutorial https://youtu.be/HmGmNMTCSAk

Aspirin is linked to a positive plant response, it is sometimes used as a growth booster and it’s supposed to make plants and orchid stronger. learn more here https://staugorchidsociety.org/PDF/OrchidDiseaseControl-ResponsebySueBottom.pdf

I totally forgot, but I actually propagated my Sundew carnivorous plant. Here are the baby plants https://youtu.be/nNmcJaT1M2o
