Cultivating Tips:

Lighting: Provide bright, indirect light to ensure optimal growth and blooming. Orchids thrive in bright, filtered light, so placing your L. Milpurat near a window with indirect sunlight is ideal. Avoid exposing the plant to direct sunlight as it can cause damage to the delicate petals.

Temperature and Humidity: L. Milpurat prefers moderate temperatures ranging from 60°F to 80°F (15°C to 27°C) during the day, with slightly cooler temperatures at night. Maintain a humidity level of around 50-70% to create a suitable environment for your orchid's growth. Consider using a humidifier or placing a tray filled with water near the plant to increase humidity.

Watering: Orchids have unique watering needs. Allow the top inch of the potting medium to dry out between waterings, then thoroughly water the plant until water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. It's better to underwater slightly than to overwater.

Potting Medium: L. Milpurat thrives in a well-draining potting mix specifically designed for orchids. Orchid bark, sphagnum moss, and perlite are commonly used components. Repot your orchid every one to two years to refresh the potting mix and provide room for new growth.

Fertilization: Feed your L. Milpurat orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and dilute it to half the recommended strength. Avoid fertilizing during the dormant period.
