Care

Phalaenopsis require little care under the right circumstances; in nature temperatures between 20 to 30 degrees Celsius are optimum temperatures but these plants will grow very well at more human temperatures around 15 to 30 degrees Celsius. When temperatures do drop below 18 degrees Celsius it is best to reduce the watering. Orchids are mostly best kept in a well lit area in indirect sun light and in a southern facing window. They enjoy a humidity level of around 60-70%.

Orchids should also be kept well clear for heating or cooling vents and high air flow areas. Requiring only small amounts of water regularly it is okay for the roots to climb out of the pots. The leaves of the orchids hang to ensure water run off allowing for good drainage and thus preventing disease. These succulent like leaves hold moister so it can withstand dry periods. Potting mix should be very porous and should only be watered when soil has dried through. Fertilizer can be applied ¼ diluted strength every 3rd or 4th watering and flower stems should be (cut) removed after flowering from near the base of the plant, although some people like to cut them just above the highest node which may produce another flower or rarely a keiki ( a baby orchid plant which can be planted). Phalaenopsis will flower again like most other orchids after it experiences its next cool climate cycle i.e. winter. If the plant is not performing use the information above and put yourself in the plants position. By doing this you will more then likely ascertain the problem.
