To determine when it's time to water an orchid, you need to carefully observe it, in particular, by studying the color of the roots. As SSPDaily notes, these plants need special attention and care to thrive and delight their owners with lush flowering.

To ensure proper watering, flower growers are advised to focus on the color of the roots. If they have a bluish-brown tint, this indicates the need for watering. It is recommended to use settled water at room temperature.

There are two main ways to water orchids: the classic method and the bottom watering. With the first method, the liquid should be carefully poured onto the substrate. With the second option, the flower, placed in a transparent pot, is placed in a small container where water is added. It is important to avoid filling it to the brim, leaving a small gap of several centimeters.

By paying attention to the color of the roots and applying the correct watering technique, orchid owners can ensure optimal health of these exquisite plants, emphasizing their beauty in any home interior.
