Questions & Answers

should I soak the medium before putting the new orchid into it?

I have my orchids in pots that have holes in their sides. Should I soak the pot for a half and hour or so as a watering technique? What is the best way to water?
Asked by: flowergirl
Yes, I soak the loose orchid mix in a bowl before planting the orchid. I plant the orchid in the mix in an orchid pot. My orchid pots have holes in their sides. I soak my orchid(s) in it's pot in a larger container of water for 10 minutes (with orchid food in the water) every 2 weeks. About a week after soaking I add 1/4 cup of water to the top of each orchid pot. Kat

8 Qt. Special Orchid Mix is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 103.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All purpose base I utilize this product as a quick base mix for my cymbidiums. I augment it with additional peat moss and shredded tree fern. I was happy these are the larger bags and had just enough for to repot all the divisions off a plant.
