Watering

Orchids need ample water but should be allowed to dry out some between watering. One way to check for watering is by poking your finger about an inch into the growing media. If it’s dry, give it some water; otherwise, let it be.

Light

Bright indoor light or indirect sun. 6 hours to 8 hours

Temperature

18°C to 26°C

Fertilizer

Fertilize orchids weekly while they are producing new growth and decrease to monthly intervals once they mature. Discontinue altogether once the plants go dormant.

Plant Bio

The next best thing to living in Hawaii and growing orchids in your garden is devoting a spot in your house for these gorgeous, tropical plants. If you are new to the world of orchids, don't be afraid of them. Many orchids can be easy to grow if you take some time to learn what they need. They are not like traditional potted plants. They are epiphytes which means that they do not grow in dirt but rather by hanging on to the bark of trees.

 The sunshine from an unscreened window can be a bit too bright (and hot), but a sheer curtain offers just the right amount of filtering. Or set the orchid back away from the window so that it's not constantly in strong indirect light. 

The key to orchid watering is not to over-water. Try to water orchids about once a week with lukewarm or room temperature water. Make sure the pot has drainage and your plant is never sitting in water. You might need to water the orchid more often in the summer and less often in the winter.

 Orchids thrive in environments that are kept from 18 degrees Celcius to 24 degrees Celcius(65-85 F). Also try to keep them away from strong sources of heat, because the air around things like your radiator or refrigerator will be much drier, which could dry out the leaves of your plant.

Orchids require special fertilizer designed for orchids to grow really well. Give your orchid a balanced fertilizer that you have diluted to half strength. Feed your orchid weekly during spring and summer and every other week during winter.

Most orchids require moist, well-draining conditions. There are several types of growing media that can be used with orchid plants—redwood or fir bark, peat moss, rocks, cork, charcoal, sand, potting soil, etc. A basic mix for growing orchids consists of coarse perlite, fir bark, and sphagnum moss.
