Orchids can be beautiful, but also extremely capricious. Even with the best care, they sometimes dry out and look lifeless. But there is a secret ingredient that will have your orchid alive and blooming in just a few days. It’s the lemon juice. This mixture can transform even the most fragile and withered orchids into beautiful flowers that you can’t take your eyes off of.
6 useful tips for growing ORCHIDS at home
Method of preparation and application
To prepare this remedy for orchids, mix one tablespoon of lemon juice or 2 grams of citric acid in a liter of water. Stir the mixture carefully and use this solution to water your orchid. When watering the orchid with the lemon solution, you must observe two important conditions. First, the solution should fall only on the soil, and the leaves and stem of the plant should remain dry. Secondly, in the room where the orchid is located, the temperature should not be lower than 24 degrees. If the temperature is lower, instead of watering, you can use the solution to wipe the leaves of the plant.
Orchids: The right watering for healthy and beautiful blooms
Water your orchid with lemon solution once a week, but if the plant is vigorous and blooming, you can do it once a month. Experienced florists suggest combining this method with the use of garlic water. Press 3 cloves of garlic, pour them with a liter of hot water and let them stand for a day. Then filter the liquid and dilute it with water in a ratio of 1:3. Water your orchids with this miracle garlic water every 3-4 weeks to make them healthy and beautiful.
With this simple but effective method, your orchids will revive and delight you with abundant flowers all year round.
