How to care for Phalaenopsis Orchids
Phalaenopsis or Moth Orchids are beautiful plants adapted to be kept as houseplants, thriving in temperatures of between 17C-26C.
However, they do have a couple of specific care needs that this DIY Orchid Centerpiece takes into account.
I prefer to keep my orchids in their original pots, then sit them inside a decorative pot to display. There are several benefits to taking this approach. Firstly, it allows me to follow the watering regime that I’ll outline below. Secondly, it will enable the roots of my orchid plants to photosynthesise during their non-flowering period. Many orchids come in clear pots for this reason.
