  • Humidity: Aim for humidity levels of 50-70%. Use a humidity tray or room humidifier to achieve this if necessary. Good air circulation is also important to prevent fungal issues.

  • Watering: Water thoroughly when the top inch of the potting mix feels dry. Ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

  • Fertilization: Feed every 2 weeks during the growing season with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half-strength. Reduce feeding in the winter months when growth slows down.

  • Potting Mix: Use a well-draining orchid mix such as bark or sphagnum moss. Repot every 1-2 years after flowering to refresh the potting medium and accommodate new growth.
