The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Orchid's Long-Term Health

Proper Watering: Orchids require a delicate balance of moisture. Water them thoroughly but allow the roots to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot.

Adequate Lighting: Place your orchid in bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can hinder blooming.

Correct Potting Mix: Use a well-draining orchid mix, typically consisting of bark, perlite, and sphagnum moss. This ensures good air circulation and prevents waterlogging.

Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a consistent temperature range (65-75°F) and provide humidity levels of 40-60%. Use a humidity tray or mist the plant to achieve this.

Fertilization: Feed your orchid with a balanced fertilizer (20-20-20) diluted to half strength every two weeks during the growing season. Reduce feeding during the dormant period.

Repotting: Repot your orchid every 1-2 years to refresh the growing medium and provide adequate space for root growth. This also helps to prevent disease buildup.

Pest Management: Regularly inspect your orchid for pests such as aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Use insecticidal soap or neem oil to treat infestations promptly.
