Culture and Care Information

*Cultural and care information is based on average Phalaenopsis care, use it as guide and should be adapted to suit your environment. Understand if your hybrid has polychilos (summer phal) genetics and adjust as needed.

🌡 Temp: Intermediate-Warm to Warm 18-25°C day - 16-22°C night with 4-6°C difference day/night.  Temperature dip to 16-18°C induces spike (flowering)

💧 Water: Wet to complete dryout cycles. Hard dry required or roots may rot. When roots are abundance, new roots can stay slightly moist. Reverse Osmosis / Distilled or Rain water is best. DO NOT use ice cubes.

☁️Humidity: 40%-60% Recommended but can go down to 25-30% if watering correctly. If humidity is an issue, leave bit of water in saucer under the orchid to allow evaporation. Do not let moss touch the water reservoir otherwise media cannot dry. Use Leca as a drainage barrier if needed.

💡 Light: Bright indirect (East Morning or Sunset Light direct, Mid-summer day indirect) year round.  Artificial supplementary light recommended in winter or low light homes. 10-12 hour or increasing light period help induce flowering

🌰Media: Our preference is top 3" Sphagnum Moss & Leca bottom combo. Our Phalaenopsis mix (Bark/Perlite/Charcoal), and option to sprinkle in or top layer moss. Well draining pots helps make sure it is able to dryout. Media choice should be dependant on your watering style, preference and frequency.

🧪: Fertilize: When it's actively growing in vegetative stage - typically when a top leaf emerges and growing. We recommend MSU & Marphyll rotation in low dosage every other watering and allow water flushing in between.
