Given my tropical origin, I prefer a bright location with daylight, but not in the middle of the room. In the summer, do not put me in direct sunlight; my leaves may burn. In the winter I am less choosy: just put me near a sunny window. I do not get very thirsty. I prefer being a bit dry rather than too wet. And remember: if my flowers and leaves are hanging down and looking wilted, it’s time to give me some water. Misting? Sure, but it’s not essential.
The staff at Laguna have given me enough nutrients for the first few months, if I am sold while flowering. Once the flowers are finished, I like a bit of fertilizer once every two weeks. My favourite food is one specifically for orchids.
I can flower for at least three months. Would you like to enjoy me for longer? Cut out the dying flowers, put me in a bright location that is a bit cold (16 to 18 degrees), and new shoots will appear. When I am not flowering, feel free to repot me if I’m getting too big.
