Hello! It’s Mongsheel. On today’s video I’m going to show how I fertilize my Cattleya orchid Roots have grown quite a bit so I’m going to give her some fertilizer The bulb I shown you last time had grown a lot as well Let me show you how I fertilize her In a glass jar, pour in a day old water. Since the roots are
not that long, I only pour little bit of water I’m going to pour in a little bit of the fertilizer I use I give about this much. Pour it to the cap and then add it to the water Put Cattleya into the fertilizer added water and I usually let her sit
for about 5 to 10 minutes While I’m waiting for Cattleya, I’m going to water my Phalaenopsis orchids Since the weather is hot, I poured in more water. If it’s winter,
I will give about half of current water so about this much When it’s hot, I pour in little bit more water The flowers start to wilt, so let me show you As you can see, some of the flowers are starting to wilt There are 2 stems, and on one of them the flowers are wilting,
and on the other one the last 2 flowers fell this morning This orchid has form a new bud Also same stem, but has another new bud down here If you look at the roots, you can see the new roots growing out The new leaf has grown a lot on this orchid There were 3 stems, I cut 2 off and when this flower fall, I going to cut the stem up to here. Since it’s hot summer weather, I poured in more water than usual.
When it gets cold, I will give her about this much water I poured in about 1/2 centimeter more water From the cut off stem, new one grew out. And one had
fully bloom, and 3 are in buds, but I think this one will bloom today As you can see, the leave turns yellow when it gets old and this is completely normal I don’t remove the yellow leaves, instead I wait till they fall off on it’s own The yellow leave usually falls off on it’s own when I lift it
up to clean the glass jar so I leave it alone It’s been ten minutes so I rinsed the roots in running water
then place the orchid back into it’s glass jar The reason I rinse the roots in running water is because if
the fertilizer is still left in the roots, it could cause root burn. Make sure you rinse the roots well in the running water before
you place it back in it’s jar I’m going to fertilize rest of my Cattleya You can soak them in the same fertilizer added water you just used It’s been ten minutes so I’m going to rinse the roots I’m now going to fertilize this orchid with the same water This is Oncidium. After I repot the Oncidum, one the bulb
fell off and I didn’t want to throw it away so I put it in water You can see that the roots had grown a lot The leaves had grown a lot too, but no stems yet. Let me fertilize it I have one more Same thing for this one. It had one bulb with no roots so I
almost threw it away, but it’s now growing out another bulb I had her for about 3 months and 2 new roots are growing out I put them in fertilizer added water and will take them out in 5 to 10 minutes After I rinsed the roots, I put it back in it’s original jar Soon I’m going to have to place her in a bigger jar This is the Syngonium I converted to water culture. The roots
had grown out a lot I’m going to fertilize the mini orchid I don’t want to waste the left over fertilizer added water so
I’m going to fertilize 2 of them with healthy roots I replaced the water that was in the glass with the fertilizer added water It was hard to place it in this glass so I used it’s original glass
and put in this much of fertilizer added water Same thing for this orchid. I’m going to let them sit for
10 minutes then rinse the roots It’s been 10 minutes so I threw away the fertilizer added water
and rinsed the roots Now we just need to add some day old water So today I shown you how I fertilize Cattleya and mini orchids Like I mentioned before, during summer time, add 1/2 to 1 centimeter
more water so the orchids could get through the summer time better That’s it for today. Thank you for watching and I will be
back with another video
