Phalaenopsis Orchid

Orchids

Temperature: Individual types vary, but the general rule is day temperature of 21°C in summer, 15°C in winter and a drop at night of 10°.  Cool nights are important.

Light: Good light, shaded from direct sunlight.  Orchids need 10-15 hours of light each day. In winter supplement daylight with artificial light.

Water: Keep compost moist – reduce watering in winter.

Air Humidity: Moist air is essential.  Mist leaves occasionally.

Repotting:  Do not worry is a few roots grow outside the pot.  Repot only when growth begins to suffer.
