The large-scale climate now influences the rhythm of the plants and thus the care measures even more than before. The days are getting noticeably shorter; this also initiates the formation of buds in some species. Should this be delayed, additional exposure as daylight extension is recommended. The onset of nocturnal coolness gets the species or. Hybrids in this temperature range are excellent. Plants that are to be kept at a constant temperature can remain without heating until night temperatures drop below 15 ° C. The warm department must be heated. The following table again shows the average values:
K: tags +15-18°, at night + 12-13 ° C,
T: tags +21-23°, at night + 15-18 ° C,
W: during the day up to + 26 °, at night +21 ° C or more.
The reduction of the shadow deserves the greatest attention, So getting the plants used to as much light as possible. Please note, that extremely warm days are still conceivable at this time of year and can have corresponding effects on unprotected plants. You inject more carefully again, with due consideration of the required drying until dark. The bale moisture is reduced in adaptation to the general weather conditions, but is still in the middle of the range; under no circumstances should it be kept extremely dry now. The plants kept outdoors during the summer must be converted into appropriate proportions by the middle / end of the month at the latest. Pronounced bad weather periods may require this. previously.
Cattleya/Laelia: The plants are to be kept more or less moist depending on the nature of the annual shoot. When it is finished and the buds of the autumn bloomers are not yet visible, the transition to the rest period begins by gradually reducing the humidity. Plants in the shoot will continue to be kept evenly moist.
Cymbidium: In order to achieve the bud formation, the temperatures must be kept low from now on and are allowed at night 13 Do not exceed ° C. Cymbidium are very sensitive to moisture, it is imperative to protect them from this in the subsequent period.
Paphiopedilum: P. insigne now also has to go around especially at night at temperatures 13 ° C, so that flowers are sure to form. The species and hybrids of the tempered area are kept 2-3 Weeks a little cooler and drier, to effect the bud connection.
Dendrobium: The annual drive is almost or fully developed in both sections. For D. nobile and related species gradually begins the pronounced dormancy period. D. phalaenopsis or. the now almost exclusively well-tended hybrids begin with the bud development. Additional exposure is recommended for lossless blooming. The flowers must never get wet, otherwise staining is inevitable.
Block culture: Small species without bulb formation must continue to be kept moist. A pronounced rest period is u. U. beyondblich, as they have no way of storing water.
