White Lilac Moth Orchid sp. 95mm
Moth orchids are come of the easiest orchids to look after, plus they have stunning flowers that can last for months at a time!
As a general rule of thumb, these orchids like to be watered every 1-2 weeks. In Winter water a bit less often, and in Summer water a bit more often. A good way to tell is by having a peak at the roots. If they're bright green they're hydrated, if they're a silvery colour they need a drink!
Orchids like moderate humidity, so if you have the heater on or live in a particularly dry place you'll need to give them a bit of extra moisture in the air. The easiest way to do this is fill a tray with pebbles, then fill the tray about half way with water, and pop your orchid on top! Make sure the water doesn't reach the bottom of the pot, you don't wanna accidentally overwater your plant. The evaporation of water from the tray will provide enough humidity for these guys.
Bright indirect light is perfect for orchids. Pop near a window and make sure they don't get any harsh direct sun! Gentle morning light should be fine.
Orchids like to be fertilised about once every 2 weeks. Make sure you water without fertiliser periodically to wash away any excess build up of salts/minerals. Make sure you use a fertiliser specifically for orchids!
