This collection has a variety of different orchids with different requirements. With this order we will supply a care booklet with all the information on each different orchid and its needs. The main points for looking after orchids:
- Light room but not in direct sunlight.
- Normally, watering once each week is sufficient but, during the hot summer months it may be necessary to water twice weekly.
- We recommend using rainwater when watering/feeding.
- Humidity is key to keeping orchids. If you live in a dry, hot house we recommend putting your orchid on a small tray of damp gravel to create a micro-climate of humidity. Never let your orchid sit in water.
