What is Orchids?
Orchids are a species of orchid in the genus Orchids. This orchid is distributed from South Asia to Southeast Asia. In Vietnam, they are found extensively in the forests of Lam Dong and southern Vietnam.

Orchids have a basic shape that looks very similar to the non-scallop orchid on the stem and leaves. In nature they usually grow downward like a waterfall. The body is sturdy, succulent and about the size of the little finger. These bodies are up to 2m in length, even longer with good care. Orchids usually only have 1 type of oblong lanceolate leaves. The leaves are about 10cm long, 4 - 8cm wide, staggered, dark green.

The difference of Dai Y Thao Orchids is that in the flower, there are rarely any type of orchid. Accordingly, 1 flower eye usually has 4-8 flowers growing close from the stem, not branching like other orchids. Flowers are a combination of pale pink purple with 2 horizontal shoulders, looking quite elected. The five petals of Lan Dai Y Thao usually fly soaring day and night. The tongue is covered with a fine white fluff with purple veins running down the throat.

Is Hoa Lan Dai Y Thao like Hac Vy orchid?
This is a question that any new lan player often asks at least once. I will answer from my personal point of view that these two orchids are completely different. Through the process of planting and taking care of me, I see that Orchids of Dai Y Thao and Hac Vy differ in both stems, leaves and flowers. Maybe the only similarity lies in the flower's tongue. Why do I say that, let's try to analyze it.

First that difference lies in flowers. When Lan Hac Vy first buds, it will swell like a sharp thorn that looks like a chicken. In contrast, the buds of Dai Y Thao Orchids when they first appear, look like buds of non-scallop flowers.

When the buds begin to grow, we will observe closely that the flower stalks of these two types are different. Lan Hac Vy has flower stalks that sprout up a segment, then branching the flower stalks. Orchids will grow close to the stem

When blooming, the Orchids of Dai Y Thao will look more flowers and the flower stalks are much stiffer than the crane. Usually 1 of their flower eyes will give from 4-8 flowers with Lan Hac Vy, only 2-3 flowers.

Hoa Lan Dai Y Thao has a bigger and stout body than a crane. Old year 2 body will be opaque and slightly brown, looking very similar to the orchid, not green like a crane. Orchids tend to swirl as much as the scallop leaves. Cranes leaf orchid is thin and flat and looks slightly more gourd.

The Hand Of Orchids

In my opinion, this is a very worthwhile flower to collect at least one spring in your orchid. Just one body of Dai Y Thao orchid blossomed, it also sobbed many eyes of an orchid lover. Let's take a look at the following pictures

Hoa Lan Dai Y Thao Lam Dong
Currently, Lan Dai Y Thao Lam Dong is a popular type of orchid player. The flower in this area is very wrong, the eye sleeps at a time with many flowers up to 8 flowers per eye. The wings are so curved, the tree is extremely strong and easy to take care of. The special thing is that they flower on the occasion of the Lunar New Year. Perhaps that is why the orchid player also favored to add this orchid species as spring orchid Dai Y Thao, Orchid Dai Y Thao Bao Loc.

Sudden mutation of Dai Y Thao
Mutant orchids also have the same stems and leaves described above. But it is favored by orchids because the flower is somewhat more unique. These mutant flowers will lose all of the pinkish purple on the flower mold. Instead it's a pure white color on the entire face of the orchid.

How to grow orchids Dai Y Thao
According to my personal experience, the most suitable substrate for growing Dai Y Thao Orchids is a large table or round. Then there are pieces or nipples of milk and then driftwood or pots.

In which, How to plant Dai Y Thao Orchids on the big board or round elm is probably the most used by many people. Myself too The reason is that this substrate will fully meet the needs for openness for orchid roots. Moist but draining quickly. Besides, because when grown up, Dai Y Thao Orchids often grow hanging to the ground. Their length is also quite large, sometimes up to more than 2m and still go tops. So if you plant pots, you have to bend or tilt the pot very difficult later.

It should be noted that when we first buy Orchids, we should trim them neatly. Cut roots about 3-5 cm from the stem. Then soak the whole plant in Atonik + B1 + N3M + Ridomil solution for 1-2 hours before planting. Purpose to stimulate growth. Increases resistance, and prevents plant pathogens.

How to take care of Hoa Lan Dai Y Thao
In the first stage, the plant has not yet sprouted and new roots have taken place, so you do not need to fertilize. At this time, the plant is absorbing the nutrients accumulated in the mother's body. If we water a lot and give manure early, it is easy to rot. When the root shoots are 7-10 cm long and the young roots are 2-3 cm long, fertilization begins. Taking care of Orchids in this period should apply nitrogen-rich fertilizers such as NPK 30-10-10 or 20-20-20 and B1.

If you do not have much time to take care of the plants, you can use slow-release fertilizer. Place them on top of the orchid so that when watering, the compost seeps down. People in rural areas can easily find cow and goat manure mixed with a little lime and dried. Then close the cloth bag and hang it on the orchid or put it on the pot is also very good. In fact, the development of Hoa Lan Dai Y Thao is very strong. Careful fertilization during the growing season will help the young stems become mature, big and long plants.

Basically, the way to plant and care for Orchids as well as other types of orchids are the same. To know the nutrition regime, how to fertilize specifically, you refer to the article: How to care and fertilize the orchids.
