Orchid Care: How to Care for My Mini Orchid

Posted by Just Add Ice Orchids 11/18/14 8:30 AM

mini-orchid-careIt is often assumed that, due to their delicate and exotic appearance, Phalaenopsis orchids are difficult to keep healthy and beautiful.

However, just like their full-sized counterparts, mini orchids are hardy plants that require minimal care to thrive. Their smaller stature allows them to be a more versatile decorating option, and their miniature blossoms make a charming addition to centerpieces and displays.  

In many ways, the care for mini orchids and full sized orchids is very similar, but there are some key differences worth noting.
