We must remember that it is not just about exposure to the sun, water and fertilizer: there are tricks and solutions that can completely revolutionize our way of gardening. The trick we are talking about today is part of this category: a particular solution, little known but extremely effective. Let’s discover together how to fill the garden with beautiful orchids with this particular method.

With this method your garden will be invaded by orchids

Using this trick you will, without a doubt, be able to make orchids bloom in your garden . It is a little-known and not very popular method because it is new in this area. The purpose of this procedure is to create a very potent fertilizer for orchids . What you need to bring this magical fertilizer to life is ginger and seaweed, called nori seaweed. 

Nori seaweed is known for being a very versatile food, it is nutritious and healthy. In Japan it is widely used, both in the food sector and in gardening. Even in Italy it is now a common food and we can find it in many outlets . Few people know that algae is an excellent material for creating fertilizer for plants, especially for orchids. Nori and ginger work wonders. Let’s see together how to use it in the best possible way.

Seaweed and ginger: use them like this

By using these two ingredients correctly we can create a sensational fertilizer to help our orchids grow and flower abundantly all year round. The first step is to equip yourself with a “sheet” of nori seaweed , 15 or 20 grams of fresh ginger and a liter of water at room temperature. The second step is to put everything into a blender and operate it until a puree is created. Then you will need to filter the puree to eliminate all residues and keep only the liquid part of the mixture.

This is fertilizer , let’s see how to use it. The first method consists of soaking cotton balls in the resulting liquid and rubbing them on the top and bottom of the orchid leaves. Ginger has antiseptic properties and will help eliminate fungi and parasites from plants. Furthermore, ginger and orchids contain many minerals essential for plant growth. The orchid will absorb some nutrients right through the leaves.

With this method the leaves will always remain green, but only if we clean them regularly. In fact, when we clean them we help them open the stomata and the exchange between oxygen and carbon dioxide will be much easier. The orchid will synthesize chlorophyll more easily. The result will be a robust, strong orchid with thick flowers and bright colors . The leaf cleaning operation must be carried out at least once a month.

With ginger and nori seaweed fertilizer you can also water the soil: the plant will absorb nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium . A complete range of nutrients necessary for the healthy growth of orchids. This contributes to the plant producing more flowers: the effect is to reduce the plant’s stress, helping it to resist the effects of UV rays and inhibiting the growth of bacteria and mold. Therefore, orchids will be protected from parasites, fungi and bacteria and will grow abundantly all year round.
