Phalaenopsis 2 stems painted purple, pink and green in a matching ceramic pot
The Phalaenopsis originally comes from the warm, damp tropical forests of Southeast Asia. Give the plant a place in the light but avoid direct sunlight. The ideal temperature is ± 20 ºC (room temperature) Ensure that the temperature doesn’t drop below 15 ºC. Giving water is only necessary when the orchid ground dries out a little. Use softened water at room temperature. Add fertiliser every third time you give water and also spray the leaves at the same time. Once the plant has finished flowering it can be cut back to 20 cm above the pot to stimulate further flowering. You can keep your Phalaenopsis in good condition by re-potting it in fresh orchid ground every other year.
The best tips for caring for your plant:
Good light, but no bright sunlight. Ideal temperature ± 20 ºC. Keep damp, compost must not dry out. Do not leave excess water in saucer/dish. Apply fertiliser once a month. Immerse plant in water if it becomes dry. Flowers several times a year. After flowering the stem should be cut back to 20 cm above the soil.
