Yates Specialty Potting Mix Orchids is specially formulated as a small to medium grade coarse mix, providing good draining which is important to orchids. The controlled release fertiliser added to this specialty mix will continuously feed your plants for up to 6 months. Repot once the plant’s roots have completely filled their pot.
For best results do not mix Yates Speciality Potting Mix Orchids with any other material. Use straight from the bag and seal tightly after use to avoid the mix drying out.
Step 1: Water the plant thoroughly before repotting and leave to drain.
Step 2: Select a pot with good drainage holes, only slightly larger than the current pot.
Step 3: Partly fill the new pot with Yates Speciality Potting Mix Orchids.
Step 4: Invert the pot and gently tap the orchid out. Remove any dead or damaged roots.
Step 5: Place the orchid in the new pot, add more of the mix around the plant and gently pat down. Do not plant the orchid deeper than the original bark level.
Step 6: Water thoroughly and allow to drain.
