Specifically formulated for the successful growing of cymbidiums and other terrestrial orchids. A coarse blend of natural composted pine bark, Yates Thrive Orchid Potting Mix provides open free drainage which is ideal for orchids.
HOW TO USE
1. Gently tap the orchid out of the pot.
2. Separate sections containing 3 or 4 bulbs with foliage. Remove any dead or damaged roots.
3. Choose a pot with a diameter that is not greater than twice the width of the clump to be repotting and with a large drainage hole.
4. Cover drainage holes of the new pot with pebbles or similar, and then cover with a layer of Yates Thrive Orchid Potting Mix.
5. Place plant firmly in the pot and pour mix into the pot.
6. Pack mix gently down with fingers and water thoroughly.
GENERAL PLANT CARE
Position: In summer, keep in a temperate environment with filtered sunlight. In cold areas, plants should ideally be brought inside and exposed to some heating at night.
Watering: During summer, plants may require daily watering, whereas in winter, keep the orchid mix barely moist.
Feeding: After 3-4 months from re-potting feed fortnightly with Yates Thrive Orchid Liquid Plant Food or Yates Thrive Indoor Orchids Liquid Plant Food Drippers (if you're prone to forgetting, as these feed for 4 weeks)
