Orchids are an ever-popular plant

Orchids are an ever-popular indoor potted plant. While the exotic flower is widely available, many do not know how to care for an orchid to keep it blooming. This article will help you take those first steps to properly caring for your new orchid and transitioning it into your permanent indoor flower collection.
Identify Your Orchid

There are about 30,000 species of orchids in the wild, and more than 100,000 registered hybrids. When it comes to orchids that are most commonly available for purchase, the overwhelming majority are one of two varieties:

Phalaenopsis, also called moth orchid. These plants have round flowers with a pronounced lip that grow on a single tall stalk arising from a whorl of fleshy, oval leaves. Flowers are usually white, purple or pink, or some combination thereof.

This type of orchid is the easiest to grow at home. Blooms in winter with long peduncles, with spectacular flowers, flowering lasts several months. Flowers are white, purple, pink, salmon or yellow; some are variegated and spotted in interesting patterns. The east window is ideal for cultivation, because the flower likes partial or full shade. The temperature is 21-26°C during the day, 15°C at night. Air humidity higher than 50%. Mature plants water weekly and fed after watering with half the dose recommended on the label with fertilizer. It grows to a height of 30 to 70 centimeters.
