How to water an Orchid?
By using the best watering can for the job: The Pinpoint™ indoor watering can:
- Lift the pot to check its weight.
- The pot will feel a bit lighter when it’s time to water the orchid again. Over time, you’ll get a sense of how heavy the pot feels when the orchid needs water.
- Water sparingly. No orchid variety needs to be watered every day. In fact, overwatering can cause an orchid’s roots to rot and eventually die. Because if water sits on the plant overnight, it can cause rotting to occur on the exposed roots and leaves which will leave the plant prone to diseases.
Unlike many houseplants, Orchids should only be watered when they begin to dry out. Watering only when they’re almost dry, so to try to create the orchid’s natural environment.
These plants have adapted to having their roots exposed to light and air, so in addition to water, Orchid roots need air. Orchids should be watered just as they begin to dry out.
And the Pinpoint watering can is the best product for the job, because you can avoid water getting onto the exposed roots, and you do not have to use a rose to slow the water down, so you avoid getting water on to the leaves.
Because with a Pinpoint watering can you always have control, so you can trickle water at a controlled rate to exactly where you want it, it’s like walking around your rooms with your kitchen tap
This rule applies to all Orchids with slight variations depending on whether your plant has the ability to store water or not.
