HOW TO FERTILIZE ORCHIDS WITH PELLETIZED FERTILIZER:
- This slow release fertilizer is water soluble so be sure to get your orchids on a regular watering schedule. We recommend you water your orchid once a week by either spraying or placing an ice cube on the top of your soil.
- When feeding your orchid, be sure to do it during the active growth season. Orchids grow most during the spring and summer months. Only fertilize in the growing season. Stop fertilizing in the winter.
- This fertilizer solution will produce beautiful blooms on your orchid plant. Apply fertilizer every 6 months and be sure to not go overboard and put excess fertilizer.
- The potting medium you plant your orchids in is very important. Phalaenopsis orchids love room to breathe and space for roots to expand. Pair with our Orchid Potting Mix or Orchid Pine Bark to maximize benefits to your healthy orchid plants.
