Phalaenopsis unicorn is a variety of Phalaenopsis. Its flowers usually have unique shapes and colors. Its petals may present elegant pink, mysterious purple or other charming colors, and may also have fine markings on the petals, which are as unique and beautiful as unicorns.
The following are the planting methods and maintenance points of Phalaenopsis unicorn:
Planting methods:
Prepare the substrate: Phalaenopsis is suitable for growing in a substrate with good air permeability and good drainage. You can use fully decomposed materials such as pine needles and rotten bark to mix and make the substrate.
Choose the flowerpot: Choose a flowerpot with drainage holes at the bottom to drain excess water. The size of the flowerpot should be moderate, not too large or too small.
Plant in the pot: Put the young seedlings of Phalaenopsis unicorn into the flowerpot, add an appropriate amount of substrate, and fix the plant. Be careful not to press the substrate too tightly to avoid affecting the breathing of the root system.
Watering: Phalaenopsis unicorn likes a humid environment, but cannot be over-watered. Adjust the frequency of watering appropriately according to the season and the humidity of the environment. Generally speaking, more watering is needed in spring and summer to keep the soil moist; in autumn and winter, watering should be reduced to avoid water accumulation.
Fertilization: Phalaenopsis unicorn needs an appropriate amount of fertilizer during the growth period. You can choose fertilizers specifically for orchids and fertilize according to the instructions. The frequency of fertilization is generally once a week or once every two weeks.
Light and temperature: Phalaenopsis unicorn likes bright scattered light and avoids direct sunlight. The suitable growth temperature is 15-30℃, and avoid too high or too low temperatures.
Ventilation: Good ventilation is very important for the growth of Phalaenopsis unicorn. You can place Phalaenopsis in a well-ventilated place to avoid a muggy environment.
Precautions: The root system of Phalaenopsis unicorn is relatively fragile. Be careful during the planting and maintenance process to avoid damaging the root system. In addition, pay attention to inspect the plants regularly and detect and deal with diseases and pests in time.
Maintenance points:
Substrate: Use a water-permeable and breathable substrate, such as pine needles, sphagnum moss, bark, etc., to ensure good air permeability and drainage.
Flowerpot: Choose a flowerpot with drainage holes at the bottom to avoid root rot caused by water accumulation.
Light: It likes bright scattered light, but avoids direct sunlight to prevent leaf burns.
Temperature: The suitable growth temperature is generally around 20℃. Pay attention to keeping warm in winter, and the temperature should not be too low.
Watering: It is drought-tolerant but not waterlogging-tolerant. When watering, pay attention to controlling the amount of water to avoid overly wet substrate. The watering principle of "water when dry" can be adopted, that is, wait until the surface of the substrate is dry before watering.
Humidity: It likes a higher air humidity and can increase the air humidity by spraying, etc.
Fertilization: Fertilize regularly to provide sufficient nutrients. You can choose special fertilizers suitable for Phalaenopsis and fertilize according to the instructions.
Ventilation: Good ventilation conditions help reduce the occurrence of diseases and pests.
Different individuals of Phalaenopsis unicorn may have differences in maintenance difficulty, and are also affected by various factors such as maintenance environment and maintenance experience. But in general, as long as suitable growth conditions are provided and careful maintenance is carried out, Phalaenopsis unicorn can still be well maintained.
