Phalaenopsis

Light

Bright window with little to no sun. East facing is ideal, shaded south or west facing are acceptable. Never in direct sunlight.

Temperature

Above 60°F at night and between 75-85°F during the day is ideal. Night temperatures of 55°F are desirable in Autumn to promote flower spikes.

Water

Thoroughly water and then let nearly dry out. Best if watered only in the morning so that leaves have time to dry out.

Humidity

Recommended humidity is between 50 and 80%. In the home place the pot on a tray of gravel, but never let the pot sit in water.

Fertilize

Regularly, especially when weather is warm and plant is growing. Bi-monthly applications of high-nitrogen fertilizer (ex. 30-10-10) are appropriate. (High-phosphorous 10-30-20 will promote blooming).

Repotting

Every 1-3 years, after flowering. Remove all old medium from roots, trim roots, add new medium.
