Orchid Care Tips and Tricks:
So, you have decided to get your partner and orchid for Valentine’s Day. The next step is knowing how to keep your orchid alive so you can celebrate your love for years to come. Do not fret; once orchids have grown they are fairly easy as far as houseplants go. Here are a few simple tips, tricks, and hints to keep your orchid blooming for years to come:
- The most common cause of an orchids early death is overwatering. While they do need quite a bit of water to live, they should have time to dry out completely between watering. So how can you tell if your orchid is ready for some more water? Poke your finger about an inch into the soil. If the soil is nice and dry, water your orchid. If the soil is still moist, leave it be for a bit longer.
- Orchids enjoy a fairly humid climate, and if you don’t live in a climate with high humidity, there are a few ways you can make sure your orchid’s humidity needs are met. One way is to place a water-filled tray of pebbles underneath your orchid. Another option is to mist your orchids lightly with a spray bottle every day. Lastly, if you have access to a humidifier, you can set it up in the room with your orchids.
- If your orchid suddenly stops blooming despite getting the proper amount of light, water, and humidity, it is probably just about time to repot your orchid! Orchids like to be repotted about once a year.
Once you set your eyes on a beautiful and elegant orchid, you will definitely fall in love just like when you first fell in love with your partner. What if you don’t think that orchids are the perfect flower for your partner, though?
