GT Orchid Care Pack

$27.00 NZD $30.00 NZD

Originally formulated for the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, home to the world renowned annual Kew Orchid Festival in London's Princess of Wales Conservatory. GT Orchid Focus GROW meets the unique needs of orchids during the vegetative phase (growing foliage), and GT Orchid Focus BLOOM their very different needs during the reproductive phase (flowering). Together you have your orchids nutritional essentials covered, year-round.


What's in GT Orchid Focus?


All 12 essential nutrients orchids need, and nothing they don't. Low-salt formulas with no urea, chlorides or sodium, guaranteed. Safe for salt-sensitive orchids. pH balanced to emulate their natural, slightly-acidic habitat. High in calcium to help avoid bud blast where buds form but fail to flower. 

 

Why 2 formulas?


Orchids need the same 12 essential minerals, but amounts required change depending on the lifecycle phase. The biggest nutritional variation is between mineral requirements during the vegetative phase (when growing foliage), versus the reproductive state (when flowering).  


During the vegetative phase, mineral requirements are not the same as the reproductive phase, requiring the shift from a bloom to a grow formula, supporting the growth required for repeat blooming next season.


During the reproductive phase, a drop in nitrogen is a key difference to shift a plant's focus from foliage to flowering, with phosphorus, potassium, calcium levels and more all different also. 


When to change from Bloom to Grow

If you don't know your plant's usual cycle from the grower or last season's growth, you can shift from GROW to BLOOM at first sight of a new spike or bud. It's best to know your plant's cycle and shift to bloom before the first season's spike appears. Continue feeding BLOOM until flowering finishes, then shift to GROW. 


What's in this pack?

GT Orchid Focus GROW 250ml + GT Orchid Focus BLOOM 250ml + 5ml pipette. Combined they make 100 litres of feed for your orchids.


How much to feed

 

General maintenance: Feed 5mls (1 teaspoon) per 1 litre water, every time you water. During times of rapid growth, for fast growers or heavy feeders: increase to 8mls per 1 litre water. To avoid irreversible deficiencies in immobile nutrient (such as calcium), it's recommended to fertilise with GT Focus every time you water.

Guys, this works!!

This is a fantastic product. I had a poor orchid on the brink of death, and this has really revitalized it and given it now growth in just a month and a half. I love it. Thanks so much! Highly recommend.
