Repotting a new Miltoniopsis Orchid – When and how
Today we repot one of my new Miltoniopsis orchids which is in dire need of attention! Here is the proper way to start off the journey!
▼▼▼More info below!▼▼▼
Miltoniopsis orchids are some of the most sensitive orchids I have ever grown. For this reason I recently decided to play it safe and use conventional media and approach to their care and things went much better!
Miltoniopsis orchids should be repotted soon after purchase, especially if the buds and flowers are already falling. Even if the orchid still has flowers, but has shrivelled pseudobulbs, it is time to remove the spike and repot the orchid.
The best medium for these orchids can vary depending on environment, but no matter the setup, this orchid should always be constantly moist, it really hates to be dry, especially in warm temperatures.
