Plant care

Pot size: 15cm - Height (including pot): 33cm approx.

Bright and indirect sunlight.

Water with tepid water and allow the water to flow out through the drainage holes to flush the soil. Best to water this plant in the morning as this will allow the water to evaporate throughout the day which will help prevent root rot. Do not allow the soil to dry out but make sure no water is left at the bottom. You will want to water more frequently during the warmer months and less frequently in the cooler months.

Normal UK room temperatures between 12°C - 25°C is fine for this plant.

Orchid’s love humidity and dislike dry air so keep away from radiators. To increase humidity, place the plant on top of a tray of pebbles.

Non-toxic to cats and dogs. Feed once a month. Once all the flowers have fallen off, we advise to cut the plant to 10-12cm above the pot and with a bit of patience the plant will come back again.
