Light, Temperature & Humidity for Orchids

Taking care of Just Add Ice Orchids® is as simple as 1-2-3!

Step 1 Image

Orchid Lighting

Just Add Ice Orchids flourish in a home or office environment with bright, in-direct light at any temperature that is comfortable for humans. Be careful of overexposing your orchid to direct sunlight, as sunburned leaves and bloom drop could result. Also, watch out for dull, limp foliage, as this indicates not enough water.

Orchid Temperature

Optimal temperatures range from 65 to 80 degrees F during the day and 60 to 70 degrees F at night. To help prolong the life of your orchid, avoid cold or warm drafts, such as near an open window or heat vent.

Humidity for Orchids

Originating in the tropics, an orchid enjoys moist air at a humidity level between 55-75%. If you observe deformed emerging flowers or leaves it is likely the result of low humidity. To raise humidity levels, try running a humidifier during the day, this should be placed in the same room as your orchid.
