Dr.Soil natural substrate for Cymbidium and pseudo-bulb orchids, preferably with biohumus, 1L bag
Composition: Premium Mediterranean pine bark (min. 80%), biohumus, Chilean Sphagnum fibers, organic matter
This formula satisfies the main development needs of Cymbidium orchids and orchids with pseudobulbs (Bulbophyllum, Oncidium, Lycaste, etc.): maximum aeration of the roots, fertilization and natural immunity, resistance to stress or disease situations.
We also have natural substrate for bonsai.
How to use: Choose a special pot for Cymbidium or pseudobulb orchids, taking into account the size of the plant to be transplanted. Clean the orchid of all dead elements (leaves, roots). The root of the plant will be washed off the old substrate with warm water. A layer of the product will be placed in the new pot so as to maintain the previous planting height. Place the plant and cover with substrate, pressing lightly and evenly around it. During the first 7 days, the plant is not watered, allowing the substrate to settle naturally in the pot and the roots to adapt to the new environment. After 7 days, watering resumes normally. Fertilization is not required for a period of 6 months.
