How To Care For Vanda And Vanilla Orchids To Make Them Last Longer

It has been known since the beginning of the world that princesses are of two types – the good ones (the delicate and the modest) and the evil ones (picky, moody and fussy). The same thing happens with orchids.

I bet that you’ve already know how to care for those modest orchids, but you should learn how to care for a fussy orchid, because these turns out being the most beautiful and spectacular flowers at your window.

Vanilla orchid – it wants a lot of light but not direct sunlight, much humidity in the air (it would be ideally if you had an electric humidifier), water them once or even three times a week (depending on room temperature) and to leave it climbing on a palm tree trunk. It’s good to keep the young plants in suspended pots to help them flourish.

Vanda orchid– has the same claims when it comes to humidity as vanilla orchid, but she loves the light, so, during winter, this plant demands a light supplement. The soil must be very airy (well off). It can grow even without soil on a wooden support with holes. Air roots must be vaporized with foliar fertilizer.

Miltonia orchid– it’s full of holes: it wants a lot of light, but not direct sunlight (like vanilla orchid), the soil needs to be airy, and, as a personal fad, during winter it needs lower temperatures, about 59 degrees Fahrenheit to stimulate its flowering. Its flowers resist on the plant for up to 5-6 weeks, but if you cut them, they will wilt quickly.
