Inspired by our recent trip to the Netherlands, here are our top tips for looking after Orchids:
Phalaenopsis Orchids are the most familiar kind of orchid in the UK (and very popular in our online shop) with striking aerial roots and luscious green leaves. They like light conditions, but not direct sunlight and are sensitive to temperature changes. To keep them looking at their best, mist with water once a week, around the roots. The roots are aerial, so they take moisture from the air – in their natural habitat they grow in humid tropical forests, nestling in between the branches of trees rather then rooted in the soil of the forest floor.
