Orchids are known for their intricate flowers that can bloom for several weeks or even months under the right conditions. They have a unique growing medium, often requiring special orchid potting mixes that provide excellent drainage and air circulation to their roots. Unlike most plants, orchids don’t grow in regular potting soil and are usually found attached to tree bark or in rock crevices in their natural habitats.

Where do I come from?

I originate from Southeast Asia.

Light

Orchids prefer bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the hot afternoon hours, as it can burn the leaves. A spot near an east-facing window is ideal.

Water

Water your orchid every 1 to 2 weeks, allowing the potting medium to dry out slightly between waterings. It's better to under-water than over-water, as standing water can lead to root rot. When watering, avoid getting water on the leaves and crown.

Humidity

These orchids thrive in higher humidity, ideally between 40% and 70%. If your home is dry, you can increase humidity around the plant by placing it on a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles or by using a humidifier.

Temperature

Orchids enjoy the same temperature range as most people, with ideal daytime temperatures between 70°F and 80°F (21°C to 27°C) and nighttime temperatures no lower than about 60°F (15°C). Avoid sudden temperature changes.

Feeding

Feed your orchid with a balanced, water-soluble orchid fertilizer every other week or according to the product's instructions. During the winter, you can reduce feeding to once a month.

Repotting

Use an orchid-specific potting mix, which typically contains bark chips, sphagnum moss, and other airy materials. Repot your orchid every 2 to 3 years or when the potting medium breaks down. The best time to repot is just after the plant finishes flowering.

Blooming

Orchids can bloom for up to three months. Once blooms fade, cut the flower spike above the node where the first flower bloomed, which may encourage a second bloom. If the spike turns brown, cut it at the base. After blooming, the plant will focus on root and leaf growth.

Air Circulation

Ensure good air circulation around the plant but avoid placing it in direct drafts from windows, doors, or air conditioning vents.
