 how to plant / grow orchids

 This is my experiance when i plant an orchid and i will share at this my buy cheap flowers online blog.

Naturally orchids (Family Orchidaceae) live epiphytes on tree branches and other plants, but the growth of orchids can be grown in pots filled with certain media. There are several factors that affect plant growth, such as environmental factors, such as sunlight, humidity and temperature as well as maintenance: fertilizing, watering and control of quarantine pests.

In general, orchids are cultivated require temperature 28 + 2 ° C with a minimum temperature of 15 ° C. Orchids are generally more resistant to heat than the orchid pot. But high temperatures can cause dehydration which can inhibit plant growth.

Relative humidity (RH) needed for orchids ranged between 60-85%. The function of high humidity for the plants among others, to avoid too much evaporation. At night the humidity is maintained so as not too high, because it can cause root rot on young shoots. Therefore, cultivated in pots that media should not too wet. While a very low humidity during the day can be overcome by providing a spray mist (mist) around the planting with the help of sprayer.

Based on growth patterns, orchid plants are divided into two types namely, simpodial and monopodial. Simpodial types of orchids are orchids that do not have the main stems, flowers out of the end of the stem and blossom again from plants growing child. Except in the orchid species Dendrobium sp. who can issue the new flower on the sides of the trunk. Examples of types of orchids, among others simpodial: Dendrobium sp., Cattleya sp., Oncidium sp. and Cymbidium sp. Simpodial types of orchids are epiphytes generally.

Orchid monopodial type is characterized by orchids growing point located at the end of the stem, the plant straight up on one stem. (cheap) Flowers out of the trunk between the two leaves armpit. Examples of types of monopodial orchids are: Vanda sp., Arachnis sp., Renanthera sp., Phalaenopsis sp., And Aranthera sp.

Habitat orchid plants can be divided into 4 groups as follows:
Orchid epiphytes, the orchids that grow on tree riding without harming its host plants and require shade from sunlight, such as Cattleya sp. requiring light +40%, Dendrobium sp. 50-60%, Phalaenopsis sp. + 30%, and Oncidium sp. 60 to 75%.
Terrestrial orchids, the orchid that grows in the soil and require direct sunlight, for example Aranthera sp., Renanthera sp., Vanda sp. and Arachnis sp.
Terrestrial orchid plants need sunlight from 70 to 100%, with afternoon temperatures ranging from 19 - 380C, and at night 18-210C. While for orchid species Vanda sp. broad-leaf require a little shade.
Litofit orchids, the orchid that grows on rocks, and are resistant to full sunlight, such as Dendrobium phalaenopsis.
Saprofit orchids, the orchids that grow on media containing humus or dry leaves, and require little sunlight, such as Goodyera sp.


Crosses aimed to obtain new varieties with color and shapes that are attractive, compact crown of flowers and a thick texture that can be long lasting as cut flowers, the petals much and no flowers early autumn due to genetic abnormalities, and high flower production. Therefore, to obtain the expected results, should and ought to have controlled the crossing guidelines, among others:
Crossing should be done on the morning after watering. Selected flowers fresh or after the full opening.
Selected as female parent who has a strong interest, not wither or fall quickly.
Knowing the properties of both parent plants to be crossed, in order to give the expected results, such as the nature of dominance that would look or appear in derivatives such as: color, shape, and others.
Interest not affected OPT especially in pollen and stigma.
Everyone got a good new varieties, should be listed in the "Royal Horticultural Society" in London, by completing the registration form orchid hybrids with several other requirements.

The steps undertaken in conducting pollination (pollination) is as follows:
Provide a sheet of white paper and a small stick or toothpick or something clean.
Cap polinia found on the end column was opened, which will look at it yellow polinia.
Tip stick / toothpick soaked with a liquid that is in a white hole or with a little water.
Polinia taken with caution. Hold the white paper as a vessel under the flower to avoid when falling at the time polinia taken.
Polinia then inserted into the stigma (the stigma).
Label attached to the stem bud (pedicel) that contains notes of interest on the date of pollination and the flower's name taken polinianya.

A few days later pollinated flowers will have wilted. If pollination is successful, and if there is no quarantine pests, the fruit will continue to develop into fruit. Orchid fruit is mature after three months to six months or more. Ripe fruit will split with characterized the fruit color changes from green to yellowish green.

In selecting seeds that will disemaikan orchid in a bottle should be noted as follows:
Seeds whitish color and empty is a bad seed.
The good seed is full of rounded, yellow or brown


Duplication of orchid plants are generally done in two ways namely, conventional and with in vitro culture methods. Propagation of plants that are conventionally performed as follows:
Vegetative Propagation malalui solution / separation of families like Dendrobium sp., Oncidium sp., Cattleya sp., And Cymbidium sp.; Cutting plants kids out of the trunk such as Dendrobium sp.; Cutting kids out of plants from roots and stems of flowers such as Phalaenopsis sp., which in turn put into the same medium as ferns, mos coconut fiber, charcoal, wood shavings, with a mixture of broken tiles or bricks. Vegetative Propagation of this plant will produce children who have genetic properties similar to its parent. However, conventional vegetative propagation is not practical nor beneficial to plant cut flowers, because the number of chicks that hatched in this way is very limited.
Generative Propagation is by seed. Orchid seed is very small and have no endosperm (food reserves), so that germination in nature is very difficult without the help of a symbiotic fungus in the seeds.

To produce large quantities of flowers and plants required uniforms in quantity as well. Therefore, increased production of orchid flowers on plants can only be achieved with effort an efficient plant propagation. At this time in vitro culture method is one way of starting is widely used in the clone or vegetative propagation orchid plant. In vitro culture was first attempted by Haberlandt in 1902, because of the nature of plants called totipotensi triggered by two German scholars Schwann and Schleiden in 1830.

In vitro culture methods of growing vegetative tissues (eg roots, leaves, stems, buds eye) and generative tissues (such as: ovule, embryo and seed) on artificial media in the form of liquid or solid in aseptic (free of microorganisms).

In generative seed obtained through hybrid seeds are genetically seeds are heterozygous. So that the seeds produced in the nature unstable and diverse. In this way to get the same plant with the parent is very difficult, because the crossing orchids has grown so wide. But in this way will get new varieties.

Ie vegetatively growing vegetative tissues or tissue culture as the root, leaf, stem or bud eye on artificial media in the form of liquid or solid aseptically. With this method can be expected to plant propagation can be done quickly and in large numbers, as well as with its parent.

Planting and Maintenance

Land Preparation

Orchid plants can be planted around the house or yard or in the garden under the shade of a tree or a given paranet or the like with a certain light intensity settings, or in open fields. Therefore orchid plant has a high economic potential, then for certain types can be planted in the greenhouses (green house). In addition to protecting plants from natural disturbances, also will reduce the intensity of attacks OPT.
Growing Media Preparation

A good growing medium must meet several requirements, ie not decaying quickly, not a source of disease, has good aeration, capable of binding water and nutrient substances are good, easy to obtain the desired amount and the relatively cheap price. Until now there has been no media that meets all the requirements for the growth of orchid plants.

For the growth of orchid plants, medium acidity (pH) ranged from good 5-6. Growing media is essential for growth and optimum production rates, so that there is need for an effort to find a suitable growing medium. Growing media that is often used in Indonesia, among others: moss, ferns, wood shavings, bits of wood, coconut fiber, charcoal, and pine bark.

Broken bricks widely used as basic medium pot of orchids, because it can absorb more water when compared with the fractional tiles. Media broken bricks used as the basis for the pot, because it has a drainage capacity and good aeration.

Moss containing 2-3% N elements have long been used for the medium to grow orchids. Media moss has a binding power of good water, and aeration and drainage have good also.

Ferns suitable for orchids because the media has a binding power of water, aeration and good drainage, decaying slowly, and contain nutrient elements required for the growth of orchids.

Easy coconut fibers easily become weak and rotten, so it can be a source of disease, but the water was very well kept and contain nutrient elements required and easily available and cheap price. In the use of coconut fibers as the medium grows, coconut fibers should be selected elderly.

Coconut coir growing media, ferns, and moss is a good growing medium for the growth of Phalaenopsis orchid plant sp. But when the ferns and moss growing in the forest is taken continuously for use as a medium to grow, it is feared the balance of the ecosystem will be disturbed.

Wood shavings or pieces of wood less suitable for orchids because the media has aeration and good drainage, but the power to save water is not good, and poor elements of N. Weathering processes are slow, because the wood contains compounds that are difficult decomposed as cellulose, lignin, and Hemicellulose.

Media teak wood shavings are a good growing medium for growing orchids Aranthera James Stories. Charcoal fragments are not decayed quickly, not easily overgrown with fungi and bacteria, but difficult to tie the water and nutrient poor. But good enough charcoal to the media orchids.

The use of new media (repotting) performed are as follows:
When planted in pots (containers) are too dense or more buds.
Medium long been destroyed, resulting in acidic medium, could be a source of disease.

Orchid plants are actively growing, require more water than is already flowering. The frequency and amount of water spray applied to plants depends on the type of orchid and the small size of plants, and planting environmental conditions. For example, orchids are Vanda sp., Arachnis sp., And Renanthera sp., Monopodial type of orchid that grows in direct sunlight, so the need watering more than twice a day, especially during the dry season.

Like other plants, orchids always need food to sustain life. Orchid plant needs for nutrients with other plants, orchids only require a long time to show symptoms of deficiency, binding very slow growth of orchids.

In the cultivation of orchids, their habitats are not quite able to provide the elements needed by plants for growth. To overcome this, the plants were given fertilizer usually either organic or inorganic. Commonly used fertilizer compound fertilizer containing the macro and micro elements.

The quality and quantity of fertilizer can adjust the balance of vegetative and generative growth of plants. At the vegetative growth phase for young plants giving NPK fertilizer ratio is 30:10:10, the vegetative growth phase for a medium-sized plant of NPK fertilizer ratio is the provision of 10:10:10. While the generative growth phase is to stimulate flowering, provision of fertilizer NPK ratio is 10:30:30.

If done fertilization to potted the only fertilizer that dissolves in water and direct contact with the tip of the roots to be taken by the orchid plant and the remainder will remain in the pot. Fertilization in the afternoon showed a good response to growth in orchid Dendrobium sp. continue...

Just as high as 90 to 350 cm, trunked small, wire-haired and almost no branching.

Large flower head (inflorescence) with a diameter of flowers can be up to 30 cm, with a crown-shaped bands along the edge of the cup with a transverse size of between 10 to 15 inches, yellow, and in the middle there are the flowers of small tube-shaped, brown color. If fertilized, the small flowers into the seeds of black and white striped gathered in the cup. When ripe, the seeds are easily removed from the cup. Known Sunflowers grow toward the sun, this behavior is known as Heliotropism. At night, the flowers bowed down.


Sunflower (Helianthus annuus), planted in the yard and gardens have enough sunlight, as an ornamental plant. This plant is suitable in all nature but is the most fertile plants in mountainous areas, areas that have sufficient moisture and a lot get direct sunlight. Sunflower can grow to a height of didataran low 1500 meters above sea level.

Sunflower can not live in areas inundated by water. Because the roots will rot.


Sunflower is a seasonal crops. The plant is propagated by seeds. Seeds derived from the first flower elderly parent. The way the seeding. Seed taken and sown seeds in the former containing wet soil, it is easy to sprout and grow quickly. If you just need a little, enough to use as a vehicle for the nursery pot. For large scale, in semaikan beds. Wait 10 days from the sow, or when high seed about 15-20 cm, may be transferred to the new plant location. One hole, just one seed. Spacing of at least 1 square meter. If too tight, will not grow stems and branches. Urbanization rate will shrink, even stunted.

Plants should be planted in loose soil. At the beginning of planting, sprinkle 3 kg of manure (chicken dung, goat dung, cow dung) per seed. Repeat as month-old plants. Give ZA 25 grams per stem. At 1.5 months of age, add 15 grams of TSP per stem. Do not forget, pay attention to drainage, pests and diseases that can whack. Age 2 months, the interest from the main stem started to bud, followed by branches in leaf sections below. One stems of plants can produce 10-12 flowers.

About Orchid Flowers

"Orchidaceae, the Orchid family, is the largest family of the flowering plants (Angiospermae).[1][2] Its name is derived from the genus Orchis.

The Royal Botanical Gardens of Kew list 880 genera and nearly 22,000 accepted species, but the exact number is unknown (perhaps as many as 25,000)[3] because of taxonomic disputes. The number of orchid species equals about four times the number of mammal species, or more than twice the number of bird species. It also encompasses about 6–11% of all seed plants.[4] About 800 new orchid species are added each year. The largest genera are Bulbophyllum (2,000 species), Epidendrum (1,500 species), Dendrobium (1,400 species) and Pleurothallis (1,000 species). The family also includes the Vanilla (the genus of the vanilla plant), Orchis (type genus) and many commonly cultivated plants like some Phalaenopsis or Cattleya.

Moreover, since the introduction of tropical species in the 19th century, horticulturists have produced more than 100,000 hybrids and cultivars.

The complex mechanisms which orchids evolve to achieve cross-pollination were investigated by Charles Darwin and described in his 1862 book Fertilisation of Orchids."(Wikipedia).

Orchid flower is a flower that already exist on the earth since 120 million years ago and have been able to continue to evolve and adapt so that it still survived until now, although many ancient plants and animals become extinct. Orchids live on all continents, except Antarctica. In China, wild orchids found living in the area of Southwest China and the South, for example in the provinces of Sichuan and Yunnan. In this world there are nearly 35 thousand species of orchids. Even more undiscovered species. One of the rare orchid found in the Xishuangbanna region of Yunnan province has a unique coat.

In the natural landscape, orchids survive the minerals contained in the falling rain and fertilizer made from leaves, bird droppings or insect decay. Insects that assist marriage orchids drawn by the smell that must pervade, or with the colors and shapes that resemble those of insects, such as the orchids that resembles a butterfly. In addition, insects have legs by stamens can also slip into the stigma, so that helps a marriage between orchids.

About orchid care, basically there are several things that must be considered.

The first is the light.

Orchids need sunlight to live, but should not be exposed to too much sun. The best is the sun from the east, when the sun will rise. But the afternoon sun too long and not good for orchids because it can quickly withered. For orchid lovers in North China, in summer they have to be careful when putting orchids on the window facing the west, because the windows facing west receive sunlight during the day until sunset. In fact, in the summer sun set over the North China at 8 or even 8:30 at night. Min Lin and Indonesian orchid lovers would not have to worry about it, but of course, preferably before noon orchids moved to a place not exposed to direct sunlight, or somewhere more quiet.

Actually, each type of orchid have needs its own light. Phalaenopsis orchid family and less like oncidium light, whereas the type of Cattleya orchids, dendrobium and Vanda like light.

The second is the humidity.

Most orchids like humidity. For orchid lovers in Indonesia, it is certainly not a problem, because Indonesia is a humid tropical country. But for those who live in North China, the air is dry, especially in winter. Therefore they are advised to put a bucket of water near their orchids, so the water can evaporate and moisten orchids.

The third is the irrigation.

At best, orchids drenched in the morning, so that the water had evaporated at nightfall. Therefore, the pot used to have water pores. Water is best to water orchids is rain water, because it contains has been mixed with dust and organic materials. Tap water is not too good, especially a lot of tap water contains chlorine. If tap water is used, it is better ignored it for a while. To remember is not to flush the orchids with water that is too cold.

Watering orchids do not need to be done too often. 5-10 days can be watered, depending on the type of orchid. To be sure, when watered, the medium where the roots of orchids growing in a state must have been really dry.

The fourth is the temperature.

For the people of Indonesia, the air temperature may not be a problem, because the temperature in Indonesia the average is always the same. In China, orchids should be treated in the house that uses heating in the winter. The average air orchids which bear no more than 33 degrees Celsius or below 15 degrees Celsius. Therefore, do not let your orchid is placed in a place that is too hot. After this you can also listen to commentary from orchid experts who say that the best temperature for orchids is 27? 28 degrees Celsius.

For those who keep orchids in the room, then that also must be considered is the fifth point of the air ventilation. For most families in Indonesia, it is not too much trouble. Most houses in Indonesia are still stuck in the ground, have a yard, and enough ventilation. This is because the Indonesian people who live in tropical climates in desperate need ventilation, so the windows are often open house. But for the people of China in major cities who live in apartments and in the winter air is too cold, the ventilation can be a problem. Therefore, for a while, orchids should be placed near a fan to get air circulation. Blowing air or breeze is needed by the spray of orchids so that no stagnant water that could be a place to grow bacteria that rot the roots of orchids. So keep your orchid to grow happy, so do not forget to wind, put on the porch of the affected gust of fresh air.

The sixth, which is also worth noting is the provision of fertilizer. Select a fertilizer that contains potassium for flower and fruit growth, phosphorus for flower production, and nitogren for plant growth. When the medium orchid bark is made from wood that has been decomposed, the nitrogen is needed because the medium is produced from the bark decay by bacteria. The bacteria eat a lot of nitrogen, so do not leave a lot of nitrogen for orchid. About the many and frequent application of fertilizers, it all depends on the state of the newly purchased plant. Ask the seller, the number and frequency of fertilizer that is used for all different orchids. The seller also typically sell orchid fertilizer recommended.

The last thing that also must be considered is the transfer pot. Each orchid should be moved from the pot every one and a half to two years. Why? Because these orchids may have grown so big that pot is too small to accommodate the needs of the roots that have been developed. In addition, the roots of orchids also be cleaned from the roots of the dead. Also important is changing the medium orchid that may have been vitamins. The old pot can still be used, after cleaning. All this of course must be done carefully and ask the seller or the store orchid plants of the procedure. But that must be remembered, orchids like to be in the pot a bit tight, because if the pot is too large, most of the energy will be used to grow roots. Also must not move into a new pot. The transfer pot orchids do when it's too big, or when found in the pooled water can rot roots. If you can not find the reasons for moving to a new pot, let the orchids live in the pot may be another year. continue...

Calla lily flower shapes which have been described differently in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco in addition to photography of the 20th century. Two types of the most frequently encountered: petals long, smooth stem, and the type of Calla lily smaller. Creamy ivory is the favorite color, but yellow, orange, pink, purple and still be an option.

4. Lily of the Valley
With a full set of row handles like a row of petals small bell, the flower is also called "ladder to heaven." The freshness and fragrance of the flowers perfect little beauty of this flower.

Peonies usually present in the spring to late summer, but can be imported by autumn.

7. Ranunculus
Finding a replacement roses and peonies? Try to choose a fertile ranunculus and this leafy.

About Tulip Flowers


"A tulip is a flower in the genus Tulipa, comprising about 150 bulbous species, and in the family Liliaceae.[1] The native range of the species includes southern Europe, north Africa, and Asia from Anatolia and Iran in the west to northeast of China. The centre of diversity of the genus is in the Pamir and Hindu Kush mountains and the steppes of Kazakhstan. A number of species and many hybrid cultivars are grown in gardens, used as pot plants or as fresh cut flowers. Most cultivars of tulip are derived from Tulipa gesneriana."(wikipedia).

The beauty of tulips in a country famous Dutch flowers in winter between the months of March to April is very charming heart with different shapes and colors. At first tulips grow wild in Central Asia and West Asia.

Turkish Ottoman Empire captivated by theand perfection of tulips and tulips began to grow since 1000. Tulip motif has long been widely used in ornamental art of Persian and Turkish. The name given to Europeans tulips come from Persian for the turban (Persian: dulband) because when the tulips bloom yet fully shaped to look like a turban. Therefore making the national flower of the tulip as Iran and Turkey.

In the famous Dutch tulip was so nicknamed as "Tulipomania" because of rapid development. Submit annually to plant tulips in the city of Ottawa as a thank you to Canada who liberated Holland from Nazi Germany and during the occupation period generously providing residence of Queen Juliana who was then still a crown princess.

The types of tulips that have been known since ancient times has a striped pattern, "a brush stroke," or "flames" or have other colors in certain parts of the petals, whereas the kinds of the newer has a colorful pattern on petals. For examplewhite tulips, red, etc.. Another touch of color on the basic color of tulips caused pigment changes at the top and bottom of the flower. Asfor types of tulips there are various kinds including: Single Early, Double Early, Kaufmaniana, Fosteriana, Triumph, Darwin Hybrid, Greigii, Single Late, Late Double, Lily-flowered Tulip, fringed Group, Viridiflora, Rembrandt, Parrot.

And for the efficacy of tulips can be used for patients with anemia, bruising, abnormal blood density, blood stagnation, blood cancer, high blood pressure and low blood, internal bleeding, blood circulation disorders, back pain, parasites in the blood (the red tulip ).

2. Flower size (for flower board)
You should consider the size of your board of flowers to give the board a flower shop. Do not be fooled by price. The larger flower arrangements from the florist board would be more expensive. If you see your close relationship with your clients this would not be a problem. But keep in mind that the size of a large arrangement of flowers would be more aesthetic value than small. The default rate measures the board is 2 × 1.20 m. Relative price generally depends on the seller 350rb to 700rb. For the business relationship should you choose size 2 x 1.50 m.

3. Colors and accessories

4. Crown (crest)

Crest than the 3 points, long crested better.

5. Quality flowers
Quality of board interest rates are generally not as good as a table or standing (iron). This is because the board usually flower arrangements for the 1-2 day only event. For the opening ceremony or grief, you should have flowers that can hold 3-5 days. Of course more expensive.

Express Your Love With a Bunch of Flowers

To be honest though I was a man, I love flowers. Most men are more fond of the things associated with masculinity or whatever they call it. Want an example? Let's just say sports boxing, football, racing or breeding iguanas and sheepdog.

How to maintain interest? Ah, it is usually women's affairs.

I personally do not care what anybody says. Obviously I love the flowers. There roses ( red roses and white roses ), hibiscus and lilacs behind my house. There are also a variety of flowers on the left side of my house. I love them all to the point that I do not know their names. In short, the beauty of nature is my passion.

Then what flowers were colored? For me, to enjoy it. I have not thought to make it a business.

Used in western movies often described how a man who was intoxicated by declaring his love affair with flowers. Her idol woman who received a bouquet of flowers would be smiling broadly. Then he spoiled voice will approach the man and gave him kiss.

The question is, whether it was romantic when a man declares his love to her heart with Far idol or a bunch of flowers?

I must admit that although really liked the flowers, I have never expressed love with flowers. Once when I was in college, I like it straight out, meeting women who are estimated and immediate flow of words of love and "seduction, seduction crap". This is more practical and cheaper, and more importantly faster.

Maybe any of the readers who would answer Yes; Love can be expressed through the flowers, especially roses Far fragrant and red or pink.

How to express love through the internet? In the virtual world ( online ) today, expressing love with flowers need more visits from a digital perspective. Meaning? Yes, still relevant to use flowers, but better use of Bank Rate, so that the woman idol of your heart can pay online or toll-growing swollen when he was intoxicated by romance. This is not a materialist but pragmatic. What do you think?

Buy Cheap Flowers Online In Indonesia

In my birth country Indonesia, buy cheap flowers online on the internet not very popular. The society there prefer to give a gift for birthday, valentine's day, wedding anniversary or for wedding directly to the shop or through a florist ( not online florist ) that usually recommended by a friend. Buying in this way can be more effective because we can see directly the quality of  we want to buy and choose a direct interest which is suitable for the celebration we celebrate, not through brochures or ads that can sometimes be misleading. Delivery and how to order directly to the store is also faster because the distance is closer shipping.
The habit of buying cheap flowers directly to the shop by the majority of Indonesian people is probably because people of Indonesia is still not much is understood about the Internet, according to their position as the country was still called developing countries. There are some cheap online flower shops in several cities provide services and direct shipping services, but less desirable. The habits of Indonesian society who prefer to interact directly between individuals make delivery services like that do not go well. Only a small part of the rich and those offices with large salaries who want to take advantage of this service. Perhaps also because people are lazy to be bothered with the affairs of the celebration with a gift that they are not too important. Or because they want to look more elegant, exclusive, or glamorous. For them it is a lifestyle and a little spending money for them is not a problem. And they will get a reputation for a while. Indonesia is not a country that has developed as American, British, French, German or Spanish who have a stable economy. Communities in the periphery areas in Indonesia are still many who are poor with inadequate education. That is why the use of the Internet in Indonesia only in certain areas, particularly in urban areas. While in the villages still need a lot of the infrastructure improvements by the government. This is what should be considered by the Indonesian government to not only deal with education and economic progress in the city, but also education and the economy for its citizens residing in the villages, so that Indonesia could become a developed country.

I hope my story about Indonesia could bring some new knowledge for you about the traditions, the habits, culture and behavior of people in Indonesia.
