Orchid arrangements and orchid plants make wonderful gifts and elegant home decors too. Taking care and maintaining them is also fairly simple, a perfect fit for the busy bees.
If you received an orchid plant as a gift or ordered one for yourself through our site, follow these basic easy-care tips to ensure it gets a long and healthy life:
1. Do not water your orchids every day. As a rule of thumb, water a 4-inch pot every 4 to 6 days and a 6-inch pot every 7 to 10 days.
2. Mind the water and room temperature. Watering with very cold water can result in serious and long-term damage to your orchids.
3. Avoid too much heat/sun. Put your orchids near windows, behind curtains or blinds, and way from direct exposure to sunlight. To check if your orchid is getting sufficient light, check its leaf color. It should be bright green. Dark green leaves suggest insufficient light and yellow leaves indicate overexposure.
4. Do not repot your orchids unless necessary to avoid messing up the aeration and/or the potting components.
