Light: Bright indirect light, meaning the plant sees the sun for 0-4 hours per day - this could be through trees or a translucent curtain, by reflected sun or through a skylight. 2-3 hours of direct sun is tolerable.
It is also worth considering how bright a particular spot is in winter vs summer.
Water: Water with lukewarm water when the moss is dry; if the plant is particularly dehydrated its' leaves will pucker.
Potting mix: These plants have been mounted using sphagnum moss and pine bark.
Fertilising: Feed monthly using a well balanced fertiliser. You can further dilute fertiliser than the recommended amount but never add more.
Temperature: 18-26˚C. Provide winter night temperatures of 17-19˚C for 2-4 weeks to encourage new flower spikes on the Phalaenopsis.
Humidity: Although these plants prefer higher humidity they do well to adapt to average home humidity.
Blooming information for Phalaenopsis: When your flowers are spent you will be left with bare stems, they often turn yellow and this can continue down the stems. Usually the top of the flower spike won’t bloom again. Look at the stems and notice where the blooms were, if you look just below where the lowest flower was, you should see a dormant bud behind a small sheath, cut about 1 cm above that. Your orchid will now be putting energy into producing foliage, roots and secondary branches and plantlets.
The plant (foliage and roots) is growing during spring and summer, when the temperature drops in autumn/winter it begins to initiate growth of a flower spike. This can vary as commercial greenhouses use temperature to ensure plants are in bloom when purchased so just bear with your plant if it has a dormant year.
Each of the plants is non-toxic.
