Learning About Orchid Care

By Nigel Howell

Do you have an orchid already? If yes then you will understand this. If no then this may sound a little strange. When you receive or buy an orchid for the first time something in your world changes forever. You will receive a sense of enthusiasm and it will thrive on having more orchids. In order for your orchids to thrive you have to master orchid care.

A lot of people are put off from buying orchids because they are expensive and have a reputation as being difficult to look after. Both of those are true but with a bit of practice you will be able to improve your orchid care skills. Overtime you will become more confident and as you get more orchids you will start to become more adventurous.

Here is what a beginner must know about orchid care. It is important not to water your orchid too much. I know that when you first get your orchid that you want to keep them nice and healthy and there is an urge to water. Don’t water more than once per week unless your orchid is seriously dry. Always check the soil before watering to make sure it isn’t damp.

Once you are comfortable with the watering you need to think about temperatures. Not every orchid is the same but most do prefer a warmer temperature. If you are keeping them indoors or in a greenhouse then they should be fine. If on the other hand you have them outdoors please pay extra attention on cold nights.

You want to position your orchid so that it receives enough natural light. Orchids love light but this is another area of orchid care that many get wrong. Their leaves can start to go yellow if left in direct sunlight for too long.

I would urge anyone to own an orchid. Yes orchid care can be a bit tricky when you start but it won’t take long for you to master it.

Orchid care can be tricky. Many people need a little help when they first start and they often turn to Nigel. Nigel has written a guide about caring for orchids. To learn more please go to his website for more information.
