Don't be Alarmed


If you see roots growing above the soil, there’s no need to repot your plant. They absorb moisture and carbon dioxide from the air that your orchid needs to grow. Air roots also act as built-in moisture indicators.

A Balanced Diet


For optimum health, fertilize your orchid every other week or once a month with a balanced fertilizer (20-20-20 or 10-10-10) mixed at half strength. Do not water your orchid on the weeks you fertilize.

Don't Stop Caring


Just because your orchid does not have flowers does not mean you should stop watering it. Continue to water your orchid with three ice cubes (one ice cube for orchid minis) on the usual day each week.

The Orchid Life Cycle


When an orchid is finished blooming, its blooms will wilt and fall off before it enters into a resting period. Resting is a normal part of the Phalaenopsis orchid lifecycle in which your plant is storing up energy to rebloom.

Curtains are one of the easiest ways to dress up a window and spruce up your décor. They also form a barrier between the sun and your orchid. It’s no secret that orchids demand lots of light, but indirect sunlight is what they really crave.
