Give the orchid plenty of light, but not direct

Despite the fact that the orchid comes from the hot tropical rainforest, the idea that it will be fine in the sun is completely wrong. Nevertheless, many owners put the flower on the window, thinking that it will be better there, and then cannot understand why it does not bloom. So, experts told us where it is best to keep an orchid in the house.

Experts told the British edition of Express about the intricacies of placing a flowerpot with a capricious plant. According to orchid experts, the flower feels best where there is a lot of light, but the sun's rays should not fall directly on it.

Therefore, if you put it on a windowsill, it should be a window facing east or west. In winter, it would be advisable to move the flowerpot to the southern window because there is not much direct sun during this season, it is inactive, and the southern direction provides the greatest amount of natural daylight.

At the same time, those who want to keep such a plant at home are advised to first familiarize themselves with the needs of the species they have chosen. After all, some species, such as the Vanda orchid, feel good under the sun, but not in the hottest hours of summer. So, there are really a lot of nuances and you need to take care of everything in advance.

Orchids do not like cold drafts or hot air blowing. Therefore, you need to place them away from heat sources and the intersection of air flows. Incorrect temperature conditions can kill the flower.

It is also important to take care of proper watering. The roots of the plant are extremely sensitive to high humidity, so you should not water the orchid so much that the soil in the pot is noticeably wet. It also does not tolerate drought. In winter, the optimal watering regimen is once every 10 days. Still, it is important to check whether the water in the orchid pot has evaporated sufficiently. The soil should be almost completely dry, but not too dry.

To make the task of maintaining the correct moisture regime a little easier, you can spray the orchid in winter. In this case, make sure that the leaves do not remain wet as this can lead to rotting of the plant.

A good indicator of watering an orchid is its roots. If they become soft and brown, this is a sign of overwatering and you need to let the plant dry. In addition, check if its drainage is well organized. If the roots are shriveled, the flower lacks water. Healthy roots should be white, firm, and voluminous.

Another way to check the condition of the plant is to pay attention to its leaves. If they are yellowed, wrinkled, and wilted, this is a signal that the orchid lacks water.

The flower should be watered with warm water only because it is adapted to tropical rains and can even die from cold watering.
