Planting and care

  • 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.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    How to plant Spathoglottis plicata?

    Light: Full sun to light shade; many grow well in shade conditions. They should receive direct sunlight for at least part of the day. Water: They should be kept moist, especially during the growing season when they need more water. However, make sure not to overwater to avoid root rot. Temperature: Tropical temperatures, and about a minimum of 60 degrees at night. They should generally be kept in the 75 to 90 F range. They will not live in frost and should be kept out of freezing temperatures. Soil: They like some organic material–a garden loam with some added peat should do nicely. Make sure their drainage is good, as well.

    How to grow Spathoglottis plicata?

    Separate some ground orchid plants from the main group, because ground orchids reproduce when you divide them. Plant them in separate pots or in the prepared ground three to six inches apart. They need space and loose soil for their roots to spread out. Water your ground orchid every five to twelve days, depending on the humidity in the environment. Allow the roots to dry out completely between waterings, or you risk killing them. Some orchids differ from ground orchids here and need their roots kept moist. Do not let the leaves on an orchid stay wet, or the plant may rot. Dry them with a cotton ball or tissue. Keep your ground orchid in low-light or somewhat shady areas. If you have it in a pot indoors, put it in a window behind a curtain. In a flower bed, you might want to construct a trellis over your orchids to shade them and keep heavy rainfall off of them. If orchids get too much light, their leaves shade red. With too little light they turn dark green. You want bright green leaves on your orchids. Deadhead your ground orchids by cutting the stems with flowers that have finished blooming and now wilt. This helps the plant continue to bloom. Check for dead or dying flowers every few days. If your plant stops blooming, cut the stem at a node or knob below the flower with gardening shears.
