Top Tips for Growing Orchids

Orchids are definitely one of the most beautiful exotic flowers you can grow in your home, but they can be tricky if it is your first time. Orchids are not big on a lot of direct sun, especially in the summer but a good amount of light is important for reflowering. When the sun strongest, make sure they are not receiving a direct amount of sun. Orchids cannot handle extreme cold either, typically the lowest they can stand is 10 degrees Celsius.

You should always water orchids from above and let it drain through the open back compost. It can be helpful to mist the leaves and roots to create a more humid environment for them, such as they would experience in their natural habitat. Fertilising them occasionally can also be beneficial by alternating a high nitrogen orchid grow feed in spring and summer and high potash bloom feed in autumn and winter, but no more than every third watering.

These tips will help you successfully nurture your indoor orchid and help it to continue blooming year after year.
