Where can I use Orchid Mix?

Professional Orchid Mix is suitable for use both indoors and outdoors depending on the orchid variety. If you are growing indoors, place orchids in a well-ventilated position. Most Orchids enjoy filtered light and periods of shade, however, this will vary depending on varieties. Light assists them to flower but if you notice leaves turning yellow then give them more shade.

How do I use Orchid Mix?

As a general rule, orchids dislike being overpotted, so when selecting your pot, choose one that comfortably fits the root system and allows for two years of vegetative growth. Ensure the post has adequate drainage holes and that they are clear of any excess plastic. Rocky Point Orchid Mix is ready to use straight out of the bag, so nothing needs to be added at the time of potting.

In Pots:

  1. Take the plant out of the old pot and remove any old mix/media and soft dead roots.
  2. Place a small amount of Orchid Mix in the base of the pot and position the orchid in the centre.
  3. Take small amounts of Orchid Mix at a time and work it in between the roots placing it carefully with our fingers whilst tapping the side of the pot.
  4. Fill around the edges to within 10 mm of the top of the pot with the mix and press down gently.
  5. Lightly water and place in a well-ventilated location. Orchids are typically grown in pots, but should you choose to plant out an orchid, then choose a shady well-ventilated position away from the hot sun. Using Rocky Point Orchid Mix, make a mould to plant your orchid into.
