Orchid Care Tips:

Maintenance: easy

 

Sunlight
  1. Avoid direct sunlight
  2. Make sure it faces away from the window entirely
  3. Artificial light works well
Water  
  1. Needs very little water.
  • Tip: Place 3 ice cubes and that will be enough water for the week.
  1. Potting with bark will help retain enough water so you’ll only need to water them once a week.

 

Fertilizer 
  1. Good natural at-home-emergency fertilizer options for orchids are eggshells, potatoes, Epsom salt, etc… (Please refer to our DIY blog post on fertilizer).
  2. Fertilizer that contains little to no urea 
  3. 20-20-20 store bought fertilizer works just as well.
  4. Fertilize weekly
Temperature:

Keep it cool, up to 70 degrees but don't place them in very warm areas.

First Plant

This is the first pant I got and I am very satisfied! The plant is as beautiful as it is on the pictures. The colors of the leaves are fantastic and the plant is very easy to take care of. I followed the care tips on their blog and I contacted them on Instagram, and I have to say that the customer service is on point. They were very helpful and answered all my concerns quickly. Thank you so much Essencia Air, I love it!
