Which is the right pot to choose for orchids?

First of all, make sure it has drainage holes, this choice will avoid water stagnation that is very harmful to orchids. The best option is to choose a pot with raised bottom like Kalapanta orchid pots, in this way the roots will never remain in contact with water.

Then, choose a transparent plastic pot, this is useful to guarantee the right quantity of light to the roots, this is fundamental for their development.

Come prima cosa, assicurati che abbia i fori di drenaggio, questa scelta eviterà accumuli di acqua molto dannosi per le tue orchidee. La soluzione migliore prevede anche un rialzo interno, come quello dei vasi Kalapanta, in questo modo sarai certo che le radici non rimarranno mai a contatto con l’acqua.
Inoltre, scegliendo un vaso in plastica trasparente, le radici avranno la giusta luce naturale che permetterà un ottimo sviluppo dell’apparato radicale.
