Flower Care and Conditioning:
Watering: The best way to determine if watering is needed is to insert a finger into the growing medium and feel for dryness. To avoid over watering, we suggest sprinkling 3 to 4 oz. of water around the top of the medium every 3 to 4 days under normal home or office condition; or just add 5 – 6 ice cubes on top of the growing media once a week. The ice cubes will slowly release over time – avoid over watering. If home conditions are dry, mist the plant in the morning and make sure that the room has good air circulation. When watering a phalaenopsis, keep the growing medium evenly moist and water every 3-7 days. Phalaenopsis is in a bud; do not allow the medium to be totally dried out. A good rule of thumb is to water or mist your orchid in the morning.
Light: Phalaenopsis needs sufficiently bright, indirect light, but avoid direct sunlight.
Temperature: Normal home temperature, approximately 65-90° F. Keep away from draft and note that a sudden change in temperature may cause buds blasting and flowers dropping.
Feeding: For easy feeding, use Throw & Grow – time release plant food 23-4-8 once to twice a year. By doing this, you will provide your orchid with continuous and regular feeding every time you water; Caution: Always water orchids prior to applying fertilizer.
Repotting: Orchids prefer under potting to over potting. When the growing medium breaks down, or when the plant is overgrown it is time to repot. For easy care, use coconut husk chips to provide long lasting excellent drainage and to maintain moisture. This coconut husk chip media can last up to 4-5 years compared to the traditional orchid bark mix or sphagnum moss which only lasts 6 months – 2 years. Please remember to firm the growing medium around the edge of the pot by applying gentle pressure with your fingers.
Severe Weather Alert: Excessive exposure to cold temperature can be damaging to live plants. You will be notified by e-mail within 72 hours if your orders need to be held.
