Orchid Care

Common household orchids such as Phalaenopsis are relatively easy to care for. They require infrequent waterings and a source of bright but indirect light. Another great thing about orchid care, is orchids are slow growing and only require repotting every couple of years. Fertilising using orchid plant food once a month is recommended to keep your orchid in healthy shape.

Phalaenopsis (Moth Orchids)

Once your healthy Phalaenopsis has stopped blooming, you can cut off the stem near the middle above the “node”, which will likely ensure another quick bloom. If your Pahlaenopsis is not healthy or the leaves are very small, you might want to cut the stem off closer to the roots as this will allow the orchid more time to build its root and leaf system to prepare for future blooms.
