Cultivating Tips:

  • Light: Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate leaves.
  • Temperature: Maintain daytime temperatures between 70-80°F (21-27°C) and nighttime temperatures around 60-65°F (15-18°C).
  • Humidity: Keep humidity levels around 50-70%. Use a humidifier or place the orchid on a tray filled with pebbles and water to increase humidity.
  • Watering: Water thoroughly when the top inch of the potting medium feels dry. Allow excess water to drain away to prevent waterlogging.
  • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season. Reduce frequency during the dormant period.
  • Potting: Repot every 2-3 years using a well-draining orchid potting mix. Choose a pot that allows for good airflow around the roots.
