Description

This tropical plant, the Phalaenopsis Orchid, loves warmth and humidity making them the perfect bathroom decoration, especially if it is on a north-facing windowsill. These beautiful plants thrive on neglect, with air roots and petals which draw moisture in through the air, so best to leave them be - or give them a little spritz every so often. Top tip: As soon as half the flowers have begun the wilt, make sure to cut right back to encourage new shoots to grow.

How to care for your plants

  • Your plant’s pot should have holes in the bottom so it is able to drain water easily.

  • If reusing a pot that had other plants in it, it is recommended you wash the pot, killing any mould or bacteria.

  • Do not over water your plant as the roots will rot.

  • Most plants need to be kept by a good source of natural light.

  • You should fertilise your plant every two months. You can use all purpose fertiliser.

  • Any dead or fallen leaves should be removed to prevent bacteria and mould. Dead branches should also be removed.
