“Seramyis” for orchids: how to use it?

The appearance at the floral market of the soil mixture for Orchids “Seramis” significantly facilitated the activity of flower water. The feature of the soil is the absence of harmful elements, due to which the plant can breathe freely. Consider what other features has this product.

What it is?

The basis of the soil “Seramyis” is a qualitatively treated red ribbon clay. Before you get onto the showcase, the composition passes several stages of processing. First, the clay is selected, then dried, then purified by defending in water and dried again. Annealed and granulated clay comes in flower departments in several options. Two varieties are usually used for orchids.

  • General Substrate. Works as a source of water accumulation. It absorbs liquid in accelerated mode and gradually ensures it culture. This ability prevents the flower flooding and at the same time does not give it to feel the need for moisture.

  • “SERMISS FOR ORCHIDES”. This soil is based on the Mediterranean Pine Bark and a combination of nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium elements, whose proportions are focused on the increase in flowering.

“Seraminis of general purpose” can also be classified into several types.

  • Largeranulated. This species is suitable for non-arbitrary orchids. It can be found under the name “Orchidan”.

  • Mediterranean. Suitable for any home crops. Falenopsises are growing in such a mixture.

  • Melkranslated. The least preferred option for orchids. As part of small granules, a fragile flower will feel uncomfortable.

Pros and cons

The main advantage of the presented soil can be considered reliable protection against the development of fungal ailments and insects. Neither mold nor pests love to multiply in the medium that the composition of “stems” provides. Another plus of soil is its large structure, so that the mixture is not capricious to the quality of water.

For comparison, hydrogels and zeolites from rigid water come into disrepair after several years, and “stems” with a similar watering will last until the end of the life of the plant.

It is important to note other dignity of the soil.

  • Flower is developing much faster due to continuous feeding of minerals contained in the product.

  • Soil is suitable for use in kashpo. Reliably saves moisture, prevents leakage of liquid through drainage. When it is applied there is no need for a pallet.

  • Does not need a systematic update, since all its nutritional properties are not lost during operation.

  • Well suited for connecting with ordinary soil.

  • Allows the roots to constantly breathe due to the porous structure.

  • Perhaps reuse. Before new use, the soil is rolled and calcined in the oven at a temperature of 200 degrees for 30 minutes.

Among the disadvantages there is a high value of raw materials, but all flower products agree that the price is fully justified, especially with regard to the possibility of reuse of the mixture.

Also, the minuses should be attributed to the low availability of the material: “Seramis” can not always be seen on the shelf of the flower store.

How to use

According to the statement of representatives of the company Seramis, the complex is suitable for any kind of orchid, although on the personal experience of some flowerflowers, it is not quite so. In their opinion, it is preferable to use a mixture for phalaenopsis. Many florists managed to grow orchids Cattleya, Wanda, Dendrobium, Miltonia.

To translate the flower to this soil, use the following transplant instructions.

  1. Choose a convenient time to transplant. It is important that by this point the orchid has already played away. Coloros are eliminated to eliminate the flower after resetting the flower resumed its vital energy.

  2. Prepare a manicure scissors or a garden secateur, a substrate “stems”, disinfection means for disinfection of sections (appropriates without alcohol or activated carbon), plastic container with large sizes compared to the previous pot, humidity indicator.

  3. Gently remove the flower from the former vase so as not to injure his roots. Before manipulation, the plant is not recommended to moisturize. Often for the safety of the flower when it is removed, it is required to split the container on the part.

  4. If the roots from the old soil are not cleaned, then nothing terrible. Do not dwell on this process, “Seramyis” is well combined with other soils.

  5. Carefully inspect the roots for fungi or pests. If there are signs of illness, then lower the copy in warm clean water. If after that further process the roots with special means, then the culture can be considered saved.

  6. Eliminate weakened and dried roots, disinfected with a thick coal or anti-bacterial segment. Remove dried and unhealthy leaves and soft hollow boulevards. Also process sections of sections by disinfecting.

  7. Dry the roots for at least 8 hours.

  8. Disinfect the pot, lay out a drain layer on the bottom.

  9. Dried roots with a flower gently lower in a new pot, filling the entire container with a mixture of “stems”. Air roots do not fall asleep.

  10. In an earthen com (not in “stems”), stick the moisture indicator and pour the flower with water in the amount of ¼ from the volume of the new package. Check the figures in a couple of hours: if the red color has changed blue, the desired moisture level is achieved; If the color turned out to be blue, it is recommended to add in a pot of water every hour until the indicator becomes intensively in blue.


When using “stems” there are some more nuances. Experienced flowers give several additional recommendations for the use of soil.

  • Despite the fact that eggs, larvae and mold do not survive in this composition, When using rainwater, this problem is not always able to avoid. Rain water contains a micro, which is gradually accumulating between the granules of the soil, and in these intervals, the pathogens of microorganisms feel quite comfortable. In this regard, do not use orchids with rainwater irrigation.

  • Should not be considered “stems” nutritional composition. When using it, the plant also needs to regularly feed. For colors grown in “general purpose stems”, any complexes will be suitable. If “SERMISS FOR ORCHIDS” is used, it is required to fertilize flowers only feeding from the SeraMis line. When translating culture to a new fertilizer, it is necessary to wait for its full starvation, and only then start using a new composition.

  • The following Council concerns the storage of “stemis”. All of his varieties do not require special conditions for this and can be stored in the needed and tape-protected packaging, warning moisture and air entering. However, “sralsis for orchids” can not be stored in an open bag. It is best to fully use a bought mixture. But if there is no need for this, then the packaging is also tapped by scotch, remove into the sealed plastic package, they again stick to the tape and stored in a dark room at a maximum temperature of +22 degrees.


The predominant majority of reviews about Seramis are positive. Flowers celebrate that trying the soil on other indoor plants, without thinking to translated orchids on the same. Some managed to save the dying copy thanks to “siely”. Basically, phalaenopsis is grown on this mixture, however, users are divided into the secrets of transplanting in the soil ondicium, Miltonia, Derdrobiuma. From minuses called high product price.

However, resourceful florists save a mixture, mixing it with a cheaper clay, intended for growing indoor flowers.
