I read on every forum about orchids, because I love this plant very much. My window sills are filled with orchids, but I had a problem with 3 of them…they just didn’t want to bloom again. And I said, ok, shall I throw the plant or struggle a bit more with it. I took a walk to my personal florist and he highly recommended a natural fertilizer that triggers a new blooming to any stubborn orchid. So, I tried it! I can say…AMAZING! My stubborn orchids bloomed again, and not only one…all three flowers.

So, if you found yourself in my position, try this goodie-woodie orchid fertilizer.

What ingredients do you need:

  • 0.5 l of water
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • half a pill of succinic acid

How to prepare the orchid fertilizer:

Dissolve half the succinic acid pill in hot water. Crush the garlic and add it to the succinic acid solution, and then leave the liquid in a jar for 24 hours.

How to apply the fertilizer:

Before fertilizing the orchid, strain the solution and dilute it with warm water. Then sink the orchid’s pot into the solution so that the liquid level reaches 2/3 of the pot’s volume. This fertilization is done twice a month and is never applied during the rest time of the plant.
