Providing the correct amount of nutrients to your plants is crucial to their health and development. When plants don’t have enough of a certain nutrient, pests, disease and less flowering are often the result. Calcium nitrate fertilizer is the only water soluble source of calcium available for plants. It provides both calcium and nitrogen. It is usually applied as a dissolved solution, allowing for quicker plant uptake.


Orchids use calcium to build cell walls among other things. Thus calcium deficiency will first appear at the most rapidly expanding tissue, like new growths and  leaves. Cattleyas are the orchids most prone to calcium deficiency, particularly those that grow very rapidly during the warm, sunny, moist summer season. You may mistake the symptoms of calcium deficiency for the dreaded black rot that can plague your cattleyas during the hot season. But this tissue damage is not from water molds, it is caused by insufficient calcium to produce new tissue. Supplying sufficient calcium to your plants will not only reduce the incidence of black rot but may even protect the plant from infection by the water molds that cause black rot.
