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.
