This is the quick start guide to care of those pretty plants. Also give you an understanding of what to do when you bought one.
How do you water the plant?
It needs less watering so avoid overwatering that will eventually kill the plant.
How do you feed the plant?
The Orchids love fertilizer regularly. Once in a week is enough and the Neutrog- Expert’s Choice Strike Back for Orchids is good.
When should you repot and how?

Insufficient light is the most common cause of failure to re-bloom your orchid. Leaf color indicates if the amount of light is adequate.
What temperature is good?
They enjoy much the same temperature range as we do. Occasional deviations will not harm your plant, except when it is in bud – chilly temperatures may cause the plant to stop budding.
