You’ve trimmed your orchid’s stems. You’ve tried finding the optimal place in the house for your orchid to live. You even tried fertilizing it. You’ve attempted every trick in the book to extend your orchid’s life, but your favorite houseplant is still struggling to survive.
This could mean it’s time to repot your orchid to give this plant another chance to bloom.
Repotting your plant should be your last option. When you do decide to re-home your orchid, transfer it to a transparent plastic pot. This clear container will help the roots of the orchid absorb extra sunlight to stimulate growth.
You should also use a specific orchid mixing soil to enrich your orchid’s life. Regular soil reduces airflow, making it harder for the roots to breathe. Finding delicate or specially formulated soil will give your orchid a better fighting chance.
