How to Care for a Orchid - Step-by-Step Guide & Check List

Sun: Indirect

Orchids thrive when shielded from direct sunlight. Optimal conditions include filtered sunlight diffused through a sheer curtain, which is abundant in most homes. Ideal locations for orchids are those where they receive bright, indirect light for the majority of the day, promoting healthy growth and vibrant blooms.

Light: Medium - Bright

Orchids prefer bright light but can also tolerate medium light conditions. An ideal spot for them in your home would be in the middle of a room with a standard-sized window, where they can receive indirect sunlight. They can be positioned anywhere between the center of the room and the window. Keep in mind that the growth of orchids is influenced by the amount of light they receive.

Water: Keep evenly moist

Water your Phalaenopsis orchids thoroughly, allowing water to drain freely from the bottom of the pot. Ensure that excess water is removed from the saucer or cache pot to prevent root rot. Let the top inch of the potting mix dry out before watering again, typically every 7-10 days. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to fungal diseases and root rot.

Humidity: High

Orchids thrive in environments with high humidity levels. Provide them with a daily misting or as frequent as possible to maintain optimal moisture. Alternatively, placing them near a humidifier or within a terrarium can also create the humid conditions they prefer. While they can tolerate lower humidity levels, inadequate moisture may cause their leaves to develop dry, crunchy, or yellow edges, though they will generally survive.

Pet Friendly: Yes

While Orchids are generally safe to have around pets, it's still advisable to prevent your furry friends from nibbling on any houseplants, including Orchids, to avoid potential health risks.

Pro Tip

To mimic their natural environment, consider placing orchids near a window with sheer curtains to provide filtered sunlight. Additionally, periodically rotate the plant to ensure even exposure to light and promote symmetrical growth.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
