LIGHT
 
 



The light is very important. This is probably the single crucial factor in determining whether or not your plants will bloom.


Too much light
– If the leaves become very yellow, move the plant to a shadier location. Not enough light - Than the leaves become dark emerald green, so move the plant to more light.

Watering
Orchid must be watered somewhat differently. There really is no hard rule for watering that can be applied across all orchids. In general, watch the plants – they let you know when they need water.




Temperature


Most in-home temperatures are acceptable for growing the most common types of orchids. In general, if it feels comfortable to you, these plants will feel fine too.
 


 Humidity
 

Most plants do best with humidity. To create the humidity – to fill the tray with gravel or to place a rack across the tray and put water in the tray. The evaporating water will help the plants thrive in a dry environment. Be sure the plants are not actually sitting in the water.
