As we said, let’s go and shoot an orchid without roots. Doing it is simple and even beginners can do it. So if you have one of these plants without roots, know that you do not have to throw it away because there is a way to keep it alive. Then take your orchid with dry roots and cut them if they are completely black.

Their color must be green tending to gray and therefore if they are not of this color eliminate them. Only the base of the tree will remain and you need to clean it very well and you can help yourself with scissors. At this point take the garlic. This ingredient has antibacterial properties and will help you as it is a great antiseptic.

Take a clove of garlic and put it in a bowl. With the help of a garlic squeezer or mortar squeeze it. At this point add half a liter of water and filter the water to remove any residue. Take a cotton pad wet it in garlic water and pass it over all the leaves of the plant.

Then take a glass and insert the tree of the plant into the bottom and pour garlic water until it covers it. Leave like this for about 30 minutes. Pour into the remaining water the clay seeds that you will put in the pot. And place from above these a soft cloth with high absorption like gauze.

Now take a bottle and cut it into only the neck and bottom. For the first about 5 centimeters will be enough while for the second about 10 centimeters. Take gauze, squeeze it and wrap it around the orchid tree. Insert the gauze into the neck of the bottle from the narrowest part. In the bottom instead put the terracotta seeds and clean water.

Then close with the other part of the bottle. The cloth will absorb water and keep the base of the plant always moist. Put this bottle in a cool place for about 2 weeks and spray the leaves every 2 days. Change the water when it is dirty or when it is about to run out. After 2 months you will begin to see the results and you can repot the plant when the roots have reached 6/7 centimeters.
