Orchid Growing Tips
Re-potting: Orchids generally need to be re-potted once a year. It’s time to re-pot when you see: yellow foliage, lack of growth or blues, dead or damage roots, or the plant starts growing over the edge of the pot. The best time to re-pot is just after flowering, or when new growth appears.
Watering: Orchids should be water just as they dry out (in general this is at least once a month). Test the potting mix with your fingers. If it feels dry, add warm water thoroughly until the water runs freely from drainage holes. Do not allow plants to sit in water.
Light: Not giving orchids enough light is one of the most common reasons for failure to bloom. Give them as much bright filtered sunlight as they can tolerate without burning the leaves.
Feeding: Orchids need to be fed regularly for optimum performance.
Air and Humidity: Orchids prefer humid, well ventilated conditions. In low humidity conditions, lightly mist leaves daily. Fans help ensure good air circulation but you not let them blow directly on the plant.
