Cultivation Tips: To ensure your Rlc. Young Kong “Sun #16” thrives and continues to dazzle with its blooms, consider the following cultivation tips:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light to mimic its natural habitat. Filtered sunlight or shaded conditions are ideal to prevent leaf burn while encouraging robust flower development.

  2. Temperature: Maintain daytime temperatures between 70-85°F (21-29°C) and slightly cooler nighttime temperatures around 60-65°F (15-18°C). This temperature differential supports healthy growth and promotes flowering.

  3. Humidity: Orchids thrive in high humidity. Aim for 50-70% humidity levels. You can achieve this by placing the orchid pot on a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles or by using a humidifier.

  4. Watering: Water thoroughly when the growing medium approaches dryness. Use lukewarm water and allow excess water to drain completely to avoid waterlogged conditions which can lead to root rot. During active growth, water more frequently.

  5. Fertilizing: Feed with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding during the dormant period (fall and winter).

  6. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix that allows for good airflow around the roots. Repot every 1-2 years or when the potting medium breaks down.

This is a blooming size imported bare root orchid division; newly repotted in a 4" or 5" pot; about 1 to 2 years to bloom; Limited!

By providing the right environment and care, your Rlc. Young Kong “Sun #16” will reward you with its dazzling blooms and delightful fragrance, making it a prized addition to any orchid collection or a thoughtful gift for orchid enthusiasts.
