The Phalenopsis Orchid thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a window with filtered sunlight to provide the ideal growing conditions. Avoid exposing it to harsh, direct sunlight, as it can lead to leaf scorching.

💧 Watering: Water the Orchid sparingly, allowing the potting mix to dry out slightly between waterings. A common mistake is overwatering, which can cause root rot. Instead, focus on misting the aerial roots regularly and providing a gentle soak every 7-10 days. Ensure that excess water drains from the pot to prevent soggy roots.

🌡️ Temperature and Humidity: Phalorchids prefer a warm and humid environment. Maintain a temperature range between 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C) during the day and slightly cooler at night. A humidity level of 50% or higher is ideal. If the air in your home is dry, consider using a humidifier or placing the pot on a humidity tray.

🍃 Aeration and Potting Mix: Terracotta pots offer excellent aeration for the orchid's roots. Make sure to use a well-draining potting mix specifically formulated for orchids. The mix should allow air circulation around the roots, preventing moisture from becoming trapped.

🌺 Fertilizing: Feed the Orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Dilute the fertilizer to half the recommended strength to avoid overfeeding. In fall and winter, reduce the frequency to once a month or withhold fertilization.

💨 Air Circulation: Good air circulation is vital for orchids. Avoid placing the plant in a stagnant air environment, as this can promote the growth of fungi and other pathogens. A gentle breeze from an open window or a fan set on low can help improve air circulation.

🔄 Repotting: Orchids typically require repotting every 1-2 years or when the potting mix starts to break down. Repot the plant during its active growing phase, usually in spring or early summer. Be gentle with the aerial roots during the repotting process, and ensure they have space to grow freely.

🪲 Pest Control: Regularly inspect your Orchid for signs of pests such as mealybugs, scale, or spider mites. If you notice any infestations, take prompt action to treat the affected plant using insecticidal soap or neem oil.
