Phalaenopsis Orchids will thrive in a bright spot with lots of indirect sunlight. They also enjoy a few hours of low-intensity direct sunlight in the morning or in the evening.
What they can’t handle is hours of direct sunlight in the middle of the day when the sun is high and intense.
Consistent room temperature is perfect for Phalaenopsis Orchids. Orchids do not do well in drafty spots like hallways in the winter or near air conditioning in the summer. Temperature between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius (59F – 77F) is recommended. Short term travel from the store to your home is okay in colder temperatures. A sleeve or box covering the plant is an added help in these situations.
Orchids are a relatively drought resistant plant. They do not want to be left in sitting water, and after being watered, they want to become dry before they are watered again. Proper watering requires that you soak the growing medium (bark) for 5-15 minutes, and then thoroughly drain any excess water. After watering, keep an eye on the colour of the roots inside the plastic grower’s pot. When those roots become white/grey, like the roots hanging out of the pot, the orchid is ready to be watered again. This should happen every week or two.
Orchid roots like to breath air and don’t want to be drowned. Make sure that your decorative cover pot never has water standing in it. It is best to empty it after watering, just to make sure the roots are always able to breath!
