Orchid with ceramic pot -
Here are the basic care requirements for a Phalaenopsis orchid care:
- A moderately bright windowsill or similar spot to grow in.
- Watering when it begins to dry out, usually every 7 to 10 days.
- Fertilizing with a fertilizer made for orchids.
- Repotting when the bloom is finished with fresh orchid mix.
- Phalaenopsis orchids are triggered to bloom by temperature. A few cold nights are necessary to stimulate a flower spike. For many people, this means the plants will bloom in the fall when household temperatures can drop as much as 10 degrees overnight.
- After the flowers drop from the orchid you have three choices: leave the flower spike (or stem) intact, cut it back to a node, or remove it entirely. Remove the flower spike entirely by clipping it off at the base of the plant. This is definitely the route to take if the existing stem starts to turn brown or yellow.
