How to care for Orchids you don’t know much about? – Very detailed guide

Today we talk about how we can care for orchids that have no ID, or there isn’t much information on the internet available!
More info below!

1. Always google the names you have on your tag, if you have one! Great basic resources are for species, for hybrid parentage and for the official registrar.

If you have no tag, or you cannot find the orchids anywhere, just keep things safe and in the middle:

2. Use the potting medium your other orchids do better in. Make sure any mix you use provides moisture, air and is not damaging.

3. Water as the orchid approaches dryness and see from there if you can delay watering more, or you need to water more frequent

4. Fertilize with whatever works for your other orchids, at half strength in the beginning

5. Keeps the orchid in bright light, but not direct sunshine. This works for most orchids we can grow at home!

6. Temperature should be moderate as well, not too hot, not too cold!

Always observe your orchid and adjust care based on that. Simple
