Orchid plant in ceramic pot -
With all the grace of a ballerina & beauty of a swan, the phalaenopsis orchid plant complete with a ceramic or terracotta container will continue to flower for weeks on end given minimal care.
Place in a well lit room with no direct midday sun especially during summer months & away from cold draughts or heat sources.
We recomend watering by plunging in a bowl or using the decorative pot itself filled with filtered or rain water, ensuring water is room temperature and not chilled.
Check for water once per 7 to 10 days depending on the time of year or temperature of the room, roots should be grey coloured and growing medium dry before adding any water (hydrated roots appear greener & damp ).
Allow to soak for 30 mins and spill out all excess water, use orchid plant food once per month to encourage growth & reflowering.
No water should remain in the decorative pot between waterings, as the roots may rot.
Remove faded blooms or leaves & cut back flower stem generally above the 3rd or 4th flowiering node on the stem as it may reflower from each stem.
