Planting and care

 

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun to partial shade. Orchid mixes or a combination of orchid mix and soil-less potting mix for general potted plants. Water thoroughly, then allow the surface and top layer of the planting media to dry out before you water it again. They like to live in the high 80s during the day and no cooler than 50 F. (10 C.) at night. Fertilize the orchid with a reduced-strength 20-20-20 fertilizer tablet once a month by inserting it about 6 inches deep in the center of the growing medium.

Caring for Ground Orchid

  • Attach a bamboo stake to the orchids spike when it reaches around 12 inches tall with orchid spring clips spaced every 2 inches.
  • Orchids need ample water but should be allowed to dry out some between waterings.
  • One way to check for watering is by poking your finger about an inch into the growing media.
  • If it is dry, give it some water; otherwise, let it be. Indoor orchid plants also need adequate humidity, about fifty to seventy percent.
  • There are various ways to increase the humidity in your home.
  • Place a water-filled saucer or tray of pebbles beneath plants, mist plants daily, or use a humidifier.
