Plant Care Guide

Light

While blooming, place the orchid anywhere out of direct sunlight. When not in bloom, bright indirect light is best.

Water

PlantShed's orchids are potted in sphagnum moss which retains water and means the plant will need to be watered less frequently. About every 10-12 days, touch the moss for dryness. If the top feels dry, add about a quarter cup of water, keeping in mind that too much water will build-up at the bottom of the container and should be avoided. If the orchid is transplanted to a new pot with drainage, water weekly allowing excess to escape from the bottom.

Fertilizer

Use any balanced orchid fertilizer at half-strength every week or two. Once a month flush out the potting mix with clean water to remove any salts that may build up. Do not fertilize while orchid is in bloom.

high-temp-plant-guide-icon

Temperature

Keep above 60°F at night and between 70-80°F during the day. The maximum they can handle is usually 95°F. Avoid fluctuating temperatures as this will cause unopened buds to drop.

soil-plant-guide-icon

Soil

The ideal containers for Phalaenopsis Orchids have holes on the sides to provide good drainage and air circulation. Plants in vases are a more formal presentation, but require more care in terms of watering to avoid build-up and root rot. Plants in sphagnum moss require less frequent watering, but a mixture of moss and bark is best for long-term growth.

pruning-plant-guide-icon

Pruning & Propagation

Blooms should last several months and will then fall off on their own, but if wilted, just prune or gently break from the stem for a tidier appearance. After the last bloom has fallen off, cut stem down to the base to encourage leaves to grow and a new stem to emerge. On large plants, pruning above a gray node on the stem will cause the plant to bloom again in 8-12 weeks 50% of the time.
