How can I accelerate orchid growth?
You can accelerate orchid growth by adding a variety of orchid nutrients. The most common nutrient, potassium and organic acids (e.g. citric acid [KCl], acidulated lime [Ca2+], and sodium bicarbonate [Na(OH)]) are the most useful.
You can also add some organic matter, such as compost, manure, and tea leaves to increase the nutrient uptake in a soil.
To increase the ability to uptake nutrients in an individual orchard’s orchards, growers can implement nutrient cycling techniques that are described below.
How do orchards add extra nutrients?
For example, if you add manure to an orchard, the animal manure and orchard nutrients become available to the plants. If your orchard has a large number of apples, the plant-based nutrients will go to the trees and shrubs without leaving any soil available below.
Orchards can add organic matter, such as compost, manure, and tea leaves, to grow more nutrients.
The best way to accelerate orchid growth is to provide an orchid substrate under the orchid pot during the germination process. To do a good job of this, you’ll need to provide at least 5 inches of substrate (i.e. a 6-inch box to 6′ height in the greenhouse. Your plants will need to have access to sunlight at least through the winter months to grow, so you’ll need to keep the air temperature as high as possible. In the summer, a cool, bright environment (a sunny window, some shade) will do the trick.
Once you’re satisfied with the germination conditions, you’ll know you’ve finished the job. All you have to do now is place your container in the greenhouse and you’ll be ready to transplant your orchid growth.
