The RootsWritten by Andy W
Everything has a beginning and the beggining of a healthy and happy orchid, is the root system. Roots stablize the orchid in place. The most important function of the root system is "taking in" of water and the nutrients that are dissolved in that water. Healthy roots means a healthy plant. Two conditions not included in this presentation is the potting medium and the type of pot. However, each will be featured in a future discussion.
This topic will be the feature of the April 2017 Napa Valley Orchid Society's Newsletter.
