Watering: Water the orchid thoroughly once the top inch of the potting medium feels dry. Ensure good drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot. Avoid overwatering as it can be detrimental to the plant's health.

Fertilization: Use a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength. Apply it every two to four weeks during the growing season to promote healthy growth and vibrant blooms.

Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix, such as a combination of bark, sphagnum moss, and perlite. Repot the orchid every one to two years to provide fresh growing medium.

Air Circulation: Good air circulation is essential to prevent the onset of fungal and bacterial diseases. Ensure there is adequate ventilation around the plant while avoiding drafts or extreme temperature fluctuations.
