Orchid Care: Growing Vanilla Orchids : My care and culture tips in the home and Greenhouse



Orchid Care: Growing Vanilla: My care and culture tips in my home and greenhouse.
Caring for these Vanilla Orchid plants can be a little challenging, if you do meet the requirements the next challange is the size of the orchid. in the wild it can grow 300ft long. lets set a goal of just 10% of that size! I recommended to grow these in large greenhouses, or sunrooms and provide a sturdy structure for the Orchid. Vanilla Plants will require bright filtered light and warm temperatures, usually in the 60’s at night or above. I grow mine at 55f at night and it seems to be fine though. Also, high humidity is a must,since they are essentially mounted with only the bottom most roots growing in medium. My greenhouse has a RH set to 90%.

How to grow Bananas : The Abyssinian Banana – Ensete maurelii Red Banana Care Tips.
Winter hardy to USDA Zones 10-11. On Vancouver Island Zone 8b plants may be grown outdoors during the growing season and must be brought indoors for overwintering or they will not survive. Plants are best grown in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Plants need consistently moist soils that do not dry out. Fertilize plants regularly during growing season, I do twice a month. Plant bananas in areas protected from strong winds which can badly damage the leaves. For containers, use a well-drained potting soil mix. Keep container soils consistently moist but not wet. Plants must be overwintered indoors, either in a sunroom/greenhouse or by forcing plants into dormancy. Either Bring the plant indoors in fall before first frost and place container in a large sunny room for overwintering as a houseplant, with reduced water and fertilization or If the plant is too large to bring inside as a houseplant, cut foliage back to 6-8′ in fall after first frost, and store container in a cool, dark, frost-free corner of the basement until spring, with periodic addition of a touch of moisture as needed in winter to prevent the soils from totally drying out.

How to Care for Orchids



Orchids are a beautiful and exotic flower, and I bet you didn’t know they are one of the easiest house plants to care for. Orchids have four needs. First they need partial light. Orchids will do best in a north or east facing window. The light from a south or west facing windows may be too strong and can burn the leaves. Next they need consistent moisture. Water an orchid about once a week. A healthy orchid will have fleshy colorful leaves and white roots. Water around the base of the plant evenly, but don’t over water. Third, remember that orchids are tropical plants and are therefore used to warm temperatures. Keep them in a room heated between 65-80 degrees. Finally remember to feed your orchid with fertilizer. Use a water-soluble fertilizer mix. Spray it onto your plant about once every one to two months.

Orchids bloom for many weeks. When a flower starts to fade, simply pinch it off. When a stem starts to fade, cut it back, but do not throw the orchid away. If you continue to water and feed it, it will send up new buds. It might take several months, but it will bloom again. Caring for orchids is easy. With the right light, moisture, heat and fertilizer your orchid will add elegance to your home. Find more information about caring for orchids at http://www.lowes.com/GrowAlong

How to Grow Orchids



How to grow orchids and orchid care.

For more information check out the other videos on our channel.

Orchids have gone from being expensive, specialist plants to being one of the most popular houseplants in the country. This is thanks to improvement s in propagation techniques that have increased the range available, the colours and, most of all, the price. One of the most commonly available orchids is the moth orchid or phalaenopsis. This is a warm growing orchid which needs a temperature between 16 and 30 degrees celsius, but ideally should stay around 21. They are sold in translucent pots because the roots need light. Your plant should last in a 12cm pot like this for at least its first year. You can see one of the main roots through the pot. They need good light but not direct sun which could scorch them. These orchids also have aerial roots which can absorb moisture and nutrients from the air. Its important not to damage these or they can rot. You only need to water once or twice a week because these plants don’t like being to wet…

Easy To Grow Air Plants / My Air Plant Tillandsia Collection care tips and tricks for happy Plants



Easy To Grow Air Plants Care / My Air Plant Tillandsia Collection tips and tricks for happy Plants. Tillandsia is a genus of around 540 species of evergreen, perennial flowering plants in the family Bromeliaceae, native to the forests, mountains and deserts of Central and South America, the southern United States and the West Indies.
The thinner-leafed varieties grow in rainy areas and the thick-leafed varieties in areas more subject to drought. Moisture and nutrients are gathered from the air (dust, decaying leaves and insect matter) through structures on the leaves called trichomes.
Tillandsia species are epiphytes (also called aerophytes or air plants) — i.e. they normally grow without soil while attached to other plants. Epiphytes are not parasitic, depending on the host only for support. -wikipedia

Philodendron, Heartleaf
Probably the most popular houseplant in the world, heartleaf philodendron, Philodendron hederaceum, is super tolerant of dark interiors. This fast-growing vine works well in hanging baskets or trained to climb a small trellis or totem.

Pothos
Often confused with Philodendron, pothos, Epipremnum aureum, will thrive in any room of your home as long as you keep it out of full sun. It’s an easy-care vining plant that you can train onto a trellis or allow to tumble over the edge of a hanging basket.

25 Indoor Plants for Low Light



Indoor Plants for Low Light

1. Philodendron, Heartleaf
Probably the most popular houseplant in the world, heartleaf philodendron, Philodendron hederaceum, is super tolerant of dark interiors. This fast-growing vine works well in hanging baskets or trained to climb a small trellis or totem. All you have to do is water it when the soil feels dry to the touch. Two newer varieties offer colorful foliage. ‘Brasil’ has gorgeous gold-and-green variegated foliage. ‘Micans’ sports purple flushed leaves with a satinlike texture.
2. Pothos
Often confused with Philodendron, pothos, Epipremnum aureum, will thrive in any room of your home as long as you keep it out of full sun. It’s an easy-care vining plant that you can train onto a trellis or allow to tumble over the edge of a hanging basket. Pothos comes in a variety of colors and bicolors, including dark green, chartreuse, white-and-green, yellow-and-green, and spotted silver. Water pothos whenever the soil feels dry, and trim back the plant if it starts to get leggy.
3. ZZ Plant
Looking for a houseplant that tolerates dark corners and neglect? Check out ZZ plant, Zamioculcas zamiifolia. This African native will do just fine even if it only gets fluorescent light in an office or shop. It also tolerates dry conditions, so it’s ideal for someone who travels frequently. ZZ plant looks great, too; it produces upright, slightly arching stems covered in shiny, dark green leaves. Water ZZ plant when the top inch of soil dries out.
4. Parlor Palm
Popular since the Victorian era, parlor palm, Chamaedorea elegans, is a slow-growing Mexican native that does well in low-light situations. It grows 4 feet tall and makes a bold statement in any room. Parlor palm only needs to be watered when the soil feels dry to the touch, but it does help to mist the plants once in awhile during the winter.
5. Boston Fern
Ever since they were first discovered in the late 1800’s, Boston ferns, Nephrolepis exaltata, have played an important role in interior design. These gorgeous plants develop bright green, arching fronds that look great in urns or baskets. Boston ferns thrive in partially shady indoor and outdoor locations away from cold drafts or heat ducts. Water whenever the soil feels dry to the touch, and mist often during the winter to minimize leaf drop.
6. Dieffenbachia
When it comes to colorful leaves, few houseplants offer as many options as Dieffenbachia. These gorgeous tropical plants feature a wide range of speckled or splotched leaves in either yellow-and-green or white-and-green. Although they grow well in dark rooms, they do prefer some bright, indirect light to keep them from getting too leggy. Dieffenbachia is poisonous, so keep it out of reach of children and pets.

7. Gloxinia
Although Gloxinia can’t survive in a completely dark room, it will bloom beautifully anywhere it can receive bright, indirect light away from full sun. A close relative of African violet, Gloxinia develops large velvety, trumpetlike flowers in a variety of jewel-like colors. Water whenever the soil feels dry to the touch. Use warm water and avoid getting the foliage wet. Feed once a month with a liquid houseplant fertilizer while the plants are in bloom.
8. Monstera
Create a tropical getaway in your living room with Monstera deliciosa. Occasionally called Swiss cheese plant, Monstera produces huge, bright green, attractively cut leaves. Monstera has a dense, bushy shape, but over time, it will begin to stretch and climb a trellis or wood totem. If you want to keep the plant compact, simply prune back the vining branches. Water Monstera whenever the soil feels dry to the touch, and fertilize once a month during the spring and summer.
9. Cast Iron Plant
Here’s a houseplant that truly lives up to its name. Cast iron plant, Aspidistra elatior, thrives on neglect and lives happily in dark rooms with only occasional watering. Plus, this rugged plant spreads slowly, so it rarely needs repotting. Cast iron plant grows 2-3 feet tall and produces dark green narrow leaves. There is also a variegated form, but it can be difficult to find.
10. Corn Plant
There’s no mistaking where this handsome houseplant got its common name. Corn plant, Dracaena fragrans, produces straplike leaves that bear a strong resemblance to sweet corn. The plants grow 3-6 feet tall and thrive in low light. Water whenever the soil feels dry to the touch. Corn plants are sold in bush form or on tall, architecturally interesting bare canes.
11. Aglaonema, red
Over the past few years red Aglaonema has taken the houseplant world by storm. With spectacular red-pink-and-green leaves, this new introduction will brighten even the darkest room. Red Aglaonema doesn’t mind dry soil either, so it makes a great gift for forgetful gardeners. Originally called Chinese evergreen, Aglaonema is almost foolproof.
