1. Your orchids are potted in special substrate called PON. The PON stores a lot of water and releases it slowly over time.
2. When you receive your plant, top up and fill directly into the water reservoir using water supply shaft, that is located by plastic tube (water meter). There is no need to water on top of the PON! Using the visual indicator, fill the reservoir to the “Max” point.
3. When the reservoir is completely empty, maintain a dry phase for up to two weeks.
Remember: PON stores a lot of water and releases it slowly over time.
4. Should the leaves of the orchid become droopy in the meantime, just fill the water reservoir straight away.
5. It is completely normal for orchids to drop their petals. This has nothing to do with a lacking ability to care for your plants. When the orchid has lost its blossoms on its stem and no more blooms are on their way, you should cut the stem back, before it starts to get yellow. Cut off empty stem 1 centimeter above first node. It will take up to half a year for a new blossom to grow and your orchid will thank you with brighter colors and a stronger blooms.
Long exposure to direct sunlight. Partial or filtered sun exposure is preferred.
Wipe leaves regularly with a damp cloth to remove dust.
From time to time, mist some water over the orchid's leaves and blooms, which imitates their natural habitat and creates a comfortable humidity level in the air around this beautiful tropical plant.
If you buy a special orchid fertilizer, simply follow the dosage instructions. Fertilize once every other week or at least once a month only after all blooms have dropped and when the substrate is moist. That's how the fertilizer can spread and be most effective. If the substrate is dry, the fertilizer can burn the leaves and roots.
NOTE: Care instructions are just a guide lines and every plant will behave differently depending on the light, air flow and temperature in a space.
