Orchids are one of the most popular home plants, but it can difficult to ensure they bloom all the time, according to Daily Express.

What to do for orchids to bloom

It turns out that you need to water your orchids with banana peel water.

To prepare banana peel fertilizer, cut the peel into pieces and place them in a container of water. Let it steep for seven to ten days.

After that, boil it for five minutes. This will help remove the unpleasant odor and kill harmful microorganisms.

Finally, cool the water, which will take about five to six hours. When the solution is ready to use, dilute it with regular water in a ratio of one to five.

Rules of care

Do not forget that orchids need regular watering. Water the orchid with soft water at room temperature. If you take water from the tap, it is better to boil and cool it. When watering, use 2/3 of the water.

However, remember that the plant adapts more quickly to water scarcity than to its excess. If the substrate is too wet, the roots of the flower will begin to rot and it will die. In addition, watering should be reduced during periods of dormancy.

There are two types of watering orchids: with a watering can or full immersion in water.
With a watering can, water the entire surface until water starts to drain into the tray. Then, wait a while until all the liquid drains into the tray and pour it out.
