Due to its pole construction, air ventilation of the root system is guaranteed (indeed, roots need oxygen, in particular the roots of epiphytic orchids). After watering, the substrate will dry out quickly – as it does in nature. Too much water, which is the most common cause of death for orchids grown indoors, is nearly impossible. It does not matter if you water ”from above” or if you decide to water ”from below” into the coaster.
However, the Orchitop will not only optimise the water and oxygen supply. Now repotting is also very easy because the plants and its roots which grew outwards can simply be pulled out upwards. As the Orchitop is open all-round, the plants can be removed easily – therefore, danger of damaging or breaking the roots is reduced considerably. For the first time, repotting is gentle for the roots if an Orchitop is used. With the Orchitop, it is even possible to repot your orchids during all seasons – they will simply continue growing after repotting as they did before.
