How to Care for a Phalaenopsis Orchid.

Orchids are one of the flowers that last the longest in their flowering period, when flowers fall, the plant remains alive, so do not throw it away. Next I explain how to take care of orchids.This is the best outcome that has come out from having treated plants for so long.

Add Water to the Plant.

It depends on the season and if you see that the roots are dry you can apply good enough water so that all the roots are hydrated but keep in mind that this water drains, it must not remain in the decorative pot, so you can remove from the decorative container and then apply water to orchid. Important! do not remove the orchid from its transparent plastic container.

You can do this procedure once a week.

When the orchids are placed in a flower arrangement the maintenance technique is different but not difficult because the decorative vase does not have drainage and we do not want to damage the arrangement.

Slowly add about 2 oz of water to each plant below the leaves. If you have decorative moss, lift it up a bit and then add water. Do this process once every 15 days.

Most of the time orchid arrangements are placed inside home or office with a temperature between 68 °F to 76°F with air conditioning. This allows the roots to dry more slowly and it is not necessary to add water every time but when they are outside orchids need water regularly.

I recommend that the orchids receive indirect natural light, direct sunlight is not needed because this burns the leaves and flowers of the plant.

If you are in a place where winter is very cold, I advise you to bring your plant inside home so that they do not freeze and die.


How to get the Orchid to bloom again.

When the flowers have fallen you will have to cut the stem. Add a special fertilizer to orchids that are easily found in the plant market. Continue to apply water regularly to the plant.

Do not worry if the plant is delayed in flowering, it can take up to 1 year to enjoy its new buttons that are produced until the end of February in some cases.


I am going to reveal my secret to make them bloom again.

A homemade fertilizer is very effective to me.

The banana skin, from egg or any fruit and even coffee ground helps all plants in their flowering and growth.

How you can make the homemade fertilizer yourself.

Too easy! Place the banana peels and some coffee ground in a blender with just little water. Blend until you see that the liquid is even and there you have a super natural fertilizer.

And the best thing is that it costs nothing because all these are leftovers from your own home and can be used as orchids homemade fertilizer.

By reusing the skin of some fruit and vegetables we help to keep the environment and also to nourish our plants.

Orchids are wild flowers that usually grow in tropical forests, I advise you to give them similar conditions. Use pieces of bark instead of soil, this will help maintain the humidity that roots need.
