Like all indoor plants, orchids need a few core things to survive. Water, light, food and the right temperature and humidity levels. Getting these things right early on will make sure your precious plant lives a long life!
Overwatering is one of the leading killers of this pretty plant - so be careful. Because orchids are tropical plants, they don't need watering. Typically, orchids need watering once a week. One thing to remember is to make sure you have a pot with holes in the bottom - and soil that makes draining easy - as orchids don't like sitting in a pool of water.
Please don't leave it in the sun for too long.
Like humans, if orchids are out in the sun for too long, they'll suffer from sunburn. Indirect sunlight is best for this plant. So, placing it on a windowsill with a lot of natural light and a consistent temperature is perfect.
Keep humidity levels high.
Humidity is vital as it helps recreate the orchid's natural habitat. There are many easy ways you can help raise the humidity levels around your plant. Regular misting is the most popular choice as it's a quick way to keep the orchid happy. Another way is to place the pot on a tray of pebbles filled with water for a natural, humid environment.
Feed orchids during their growth spurts
Now and then, your orchid may need some food to help perk it up and encourage growth. The amount you feed depends on the type of orchid, so make sure you read the care booklet with your Richrose Flowers to know precisely what to do. You'll need to feed it more during spring and summer as those are its active growing months. But, remember, on the week that you provide your orchids, there's no need to water them.
There are many different orchids you can get to spruce up your home decor. And each one has its own specific care needs, so it's essential to do your research and learn what your orchid needs. Here are the three most popular types of orchids people have as houseplants:
The cymbidium orchid - often called the boat orchid - is the oldest cultivated orchid, with evidence going back 2500 years ago in 500 BC China. Flowering from autumn to spring, this type of orchid is a little more demanding than others as they need their soil to be moist at all times but not soggy or wet.
Perfect for beginners, the phalaenopsis orchid, or moth orchid, is also known. It is super easy to grow and is one of the longest blooming plants, producing colored flowers for 2-6 months, often several times a year. This type of orchid also needs brief dry periods between every watering.
The fabulous dendrobium orchid is one of the easiest orchids to grow and bloom exotic pure-white flowers from April to June. These orchids need moist soil during their growing periods. When they're not growing, they still need to be watered often and need a brief dry period between watering.
Once your orchid has bloomed, the flowers can last for up to 12 weeks before needing to be pruned. You'll notice they may start to droop or fade, or some flowers may disappear altogether. If the stems are still green, they're in a good, healthy condition, so you'll only need to trim just one inch above the node where the first flower has bloomed. Make sure you cut diagonally to help it grow excellent and vital for the next flowering season.
If you have stems that have turned brown, they'll need to be cut all the way back to the base of the plant so it can focus on producing new, healthy leaves and roots. Trimming your orchid after it's finished blooming is the best way for it to regrow the following year.
