Be amazed by the Kolibri Orchids Epi-tree. The Epi-tree shows you unspoiled nature and brings you back to the originality of the orchid. This is where she owes her name. Orchids are epiphytes, which means that they attach to living greenery without extracting nutrients from it.
Inspired by nature
De Epi tree is an imitation of nature, made with great care and craftsmanship. A unique masterpiece. The orchid clings to the trunk of the tree just like in nature and gets its nutrition from water and light. It is an exclusive orchid because of the special craftsmanship required to make the Epi-tree. The development process requires patience and knowledge, which is why it is only available in limited numbers. The young orchids are tied to a stump to develop into Epi-tree and it is then returned to the nursery to grow. This process takes longer than the other orchids we have in our nursery.
The Epi-tree consists of three Phalaenopsis orchids. This allows you to do the same care tips as with the Phalaenopsis orchid. However, there are a number of points that you should take into account.
Make sure the Epi-tree is in a bright spot, but not in direct sunlight. This means that it should not be placed in a blazing sun, such as in a window frame where the sun shines fully. Would you like to place the Epi-tree here? Then make sure you filter the sunlight with a roller blind. In addition, it is important that you do not place the Epi-tree in a cold place, but in a room with a room temperature between 16 and 24 degrees. Also make sure that it is not placed in a draft, next to a blaring heater or next to a fruit bowl.
- To water
One of the most important sources of nutrition for the Epi-tree is water. Make sure that the saucer in which it is placed is always filled with water. This must not be left dry. We also recommend that you mist the Epi-tree twice a week with a plant sprayer. This prevents the Epi-tree from drying out and allows you to enjoy its beauty for a long time.
After about eight weeks the Epi-tree finishes flowering. Fortunately, it can also bloom again and with the following steps you can make it bloom again. To do this, cut the branch at the second eye (these are thickenings in the branch). Then place the Epi-tree back in a cool room and after approximately 100 days the Epi-tree will produce new branches. Mist the Epi-tree with water once a week and fill the saucer a little with water every week.
