Easy Orchid Care

Orchids are one nature’s true gems that will add a touch of elegance to any home but, although they are fairly easy to grow, they do need some care and attention.

 

 

They make wonderful, welcome gifts and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, they could be the perfect gift you’re looking for.

Often, they will last for many years continuing to bring joy and beauty in to your life as well as the lives of family and friends.

For all their beauty, it’s very important to look after your orchids which is why we want to share this three step guide…

1. Water

Don’t over water. More orchids are killed by over watering than anything else, so it’s important that you leave an orchid until the roots and compost are almost dry before watering.

2. Feed

Orchids benefit from a correctly balanced and quality feed, however it’s important to water between feeds. They dont like a build up of salts in their growing medium so it’s vital to flush an orchid with water before feeding again to avoid any build up.

3. Position

Keep orchids in a semi shaded position. In the wild, orchids grow under the jungle canopy and are mostly in semi shade. Because of this it’s important to keep them out of direct sunlight.
