CARE of Moth orchids (Phalaenopsis):
With good care you can enjoy the flower splendor of your Phalaenopsis for a very long time, up to more than three months. And did you know that you can re-bloom your Phalaenopsis after flowering, with a break of about six months before the plant is planted? We have listed a number of tips for you to enjoy the floral splendor of your Phalaenopsis for as long as possible. These tips will also help you flower your orchid several times.
Best with a minimum night temperature of 16°C and a maximum daytime temperature of 24°C. The ideal daytime temperature is between 20 and 22°C. Although this orchid requires a lot of light, it does not tolerate direct sunlight, especially not in the summer months. An ideal place is a place on the windowsill oriented to the (north) east or (south) west.
Do not pour the water into the heart of the plant, but rather onto the soil in the pot. Rainwater is better than tap water that contains (too) much lime. Preferably water early in the day. Even better, immerse the pot in a bucket of water for 5 to 10 minutes. Your orchid can then go without water for seven days. In its natural environment, the Phalaenopsis has a high humidity. If you therefore want to grow or propagate the plant, it is best to do so in moist places, such as in a kitchen, bathroom or conservatory.
