By wholesale-orchids. Posted in Orchid Tipps | No Comments »

Classified according to live orchids.

- based on live orchids (epiphytic orchid) is based on the orchid trees. It has roots in helping the adhesive and can be used to find roots in the food, water. To be fed to the trunk, such as Dendrobium and Vanda.
- orchid soil (terrestrial orchid) as part of the orchid roots live in the soil or beneath the surface. Some have leaves growing season Thung, but some species are just some of it growing season. And the rest will stay just head them in the season that is not appropriate. 
- orchids live on rocks (lithophytic orchid) is a growing orchids. The roots hold the island to live on the rocks.
- water orchid is a small group. This is the root of the probe into the water. To find food to raise the trunk. They like water, all kinds of orchids.

By type of growth.
- The growth top (monopodial vegetative) growth is the top non-Ltd. Is a tissue growth that can shoot growth with no end. And the tissue on the side. The new balance will tip growth is a never-ending.
- The growth side (sympodial vegetative) growth is a characteristic of the tissue with the tip is limited. But tissue new from the point of growth side of the trunk.

By type of food.
- orchids can synthesize food (autophytic orchid) is the most common orchid in the world. Orchids are the chlorophyll and can make their own food by photosynthesis.
- orchids eating carcasses (saprophytic orchid) is a small group of orchids that can not create their own food due to lack of chlorophyll. But will rely on some type of food by microorganisms. Can be found only during the bloom.
Orchids by the root system.

this is the standard way for using because it’s easy to select the appropriate device planted, Mostly we will separate the root system is like this

- Ground root system, which are caused underground root. This orchid is usually found in the woods with a clear change of season. When dry, it will stay in the soil. When it rains, it will have sprouted and the young leaves emerge from the soil with spike.
- Semi Ground root system,found naturally in the ground up. Sometimes, it was found that the leaves will fall off when the dry season, but look at stumps still shoots good. Upon receipt of proper humidity will have sprouted are all goneMost live in the area of ​​decay or a rock pile which the orchid leaf pile to live with these things as food.
- Air root system, orchids living on the land on rocks or on trees on the land if it is found in areas where the leaves are thick pile. Or high water is not trapped in the air for half the root cells of the root is thick and looks like a sponge and absorb water.
- Semi air root system,Roots will look big and rough. Less seems to be that if the roots are real thin solid inside. Root surface will act to absorb water, store water, can withstand drought better. Orchid root does not like to live in a wet state for too long. Like to make clear that the roots can dry quickly.

But we can control the amount of water in the form of water And maintain moisture. All orchids need humidity to grow different. Some prefer more moisture. I have to use the plant to keep moisture. Water to soak them as rattan as Far Land Development Sea, but some need more moisture. Grower may use coal or No need to wear them like a grown elephant or maybe Wanda raised by planting trees Principle to most of the water is pouring from both.

how to grow orchids

By wholesale-orchids. Posted in Orchid Tipps | No Comments »

Orchids grow, breed explains step by step – generative and vegetative propagation of orchids

You can multiply by two different ways your orchids orchids Generative propagation . (Sexual reproduction by seed, the plants are different because of the genes of the parents) and the orchid vegetative propagation (asexual reproduction through meristems (young tissue), christening or Keiki (offshoot ) and about the parts of the plant. The plants are genetically identical to parents. They are like cloned.

The Generative propagation of orchids by pollination

How do many other plants in order to form seed pods can get pollen on the stigma of the flower. Insects land on the lower lip and thus fertilize the flower. The lip is usually conspicuously colored and / or gives off a scent to attract the insects.

For successful fertilization formed within weeks or months seedpods that fall to the ground split open, and are blown by the wind. The orchid seeds lack the endosperm, to germinate, as is common in other plant species. So does the orchid seeds, the advantage of symbiosis. A type of fungus splits the nutrients of the soil or tree bark so that it can feed the orchid seeds, so that it germinates.

It is almost possible to multiply each his orchids if you proceed with caution and carefully.
Run a toothpick through the golden pollen on the sticky stigma. Soon closes the scar is thick and faded. The pollen to pass through the pollen tube into the ovary. Within the next few weeks, the plant is fertilized. Watch the ovaries swell, so it’s a good sign. The maturing of the seeds may take between 2 and 9 months.

Sexually orchids grow through symbiosis (without sterile bench) – several possibilities

Remove the seeds and scatter them in the substrate of the mother plant, in the hope that the important fungi are found there.
Vaccinate a piece of bark or bark. Make sure to get a moist crust and a moist and warm ambient air. Use preferably a windowsill greenhouse.
Use the towel method. You must also ensure that the humidity will remain.
The vegetative propagation of orchids – several possibilities

Plant the branch (or keiki Kindel) in a small windowsill greenhouse.
Divide the bulbs and plant them in the substrate.
Plant the Rückbulben.
Plant a Nodienkultur from leafless, green Rückbulben in a windowsill greenhouse.
Bring to get moss on the cuttings to a root anchorage.
What is always to respect

Very important increase in orchids is that the plants are strong and healthy. Never use non-sterile tools (scissors, knives, and so on) to process the plants. The interfaces of the orchids you should sprinkle with carbon or sulfur powder to prevent bacterial and fungal infections. If you tie a plastic bag or plastic wrap to a pot, to increase the humidity around the plant, you always think from it and to the plant to air, so that no decay occurs.

In pollination, when only one plant is available, should be present at least two flowers (one is the dust, the other the pollinated). To pollinating flowers should be open for several days.
