How to Grow
hile in flower, Phalaenopsis Orchids require a warm position with a night-time temperature of 16-19C (61-66F) and day temperatures between 19-30C (66-86F).Choose a brightly lit position away from draughts and radiators, avoiding the direct glare of the sun.
More Info

Water regularly, to keep the compost reliably moist. Use tepid rainwater where possible, and let the pot drain well afterwards. Avoid leaving Phalaenopsis in standing water as this may cause the plant to rot. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Phalaenopsis enjoy a humid atmosphere and will appreciate regular misting.

After flowering, trim away any faded flowers but leave most of the stem intact - further flowering sideshoots may appear from the main stem. In autumn, move Phalaenopsis to a cooler position to allow new buds to form. Reduce watering during this period and allow the compost to dry out slightly between watering. Once the buds have formed, the plant may be returned to its original growing position, and watering increased.
