6 Flowering Orchids to Grow
Growing orchids is easy if you follow a few simple rules: give them indirect light, don't overwater, and keep them away from openings that blow dry air.
And once they've left the flowers, you can get most orchids to bloom again: with a month of temperature changes (10 degrees between day and night is ideal), regular fertilizer, and patience.
With tens of thousands of species to choose from, orchids come in an incredible variety of colors and sizes, many of which have mysterious scents. Read six of our favorite easy-to-grow orchids.
Lady’s Slipper Orchid
Botanical name: Paphiopedilum.
Care and Feeding: Low light, humid air, and growing bark make for a happy slipper. Water once a week (or when the top of the growing medium is dry) and let the roots drain completely. If she is happy, a lady's slipper will bloom at the end of winter every year.
Design Tip: With dozens of species and hybrids, lady's slipper orchids come in many attractive color combinations. The women's sneaker is compact enough to stand on the edge of a sink. It looks great in front of a mirror and reflects the colors on the back of its petals.
Botanical name: Oncidium
Care and Feeding: Oncidium prefers cooler temperatures at night and eagerly awaits a window sill away from hot crevices (if the sun is too strong, protect the plant with a sheer cloth curtain). Check your happiness according to the state of your stems. When they no longer appear plump and firm at the base, give the Once more water.
Design Tip: Elegant, arched flower stalks can be supported by stiff grass that blends almost invisibly with the flower stalks.
Botanical Name: Miltoniopsis
Care and feeding: this orchid likes to spray it daily; Its flat flowers have earned it the nickname of Pansy Orchid. Another nickname he deserves is Goldilocks; Don't let it get too dry or wet or it will peel off.
Design Tip: The brightly colored velvety petals make it a highlight. A calm environment emphasizes the colorful beauty.
Botanical Name: Phalaenopsis
Care and feeding: Give a moth orchid bright indirect light (a north-facing window may not get enough sunlight). To avoid burns, cover an exposure to the west or south with a transparent curtain to filter out hot rays. Expect a blooming Phalaenopsis to stay in bloom for two months or more.
Design Tip: While a single Phalaenopsis vase is lovely, orchids with white butterflies look dramatic en masse. Group three in a container for eye-catching flower arrangements.
Sharry Baby Orchid
Botanical Name: Oncidium ‘Sharry Baby’
Care and feeding: keep in filtered light with moderate humidity (the strong sun can burn the leaves). Fertilize "Sharry Baby" lightly and evenly to stimulate growth.
Design Tip: With flower stalks that can reach spectacular lengths of up to four feet, "Sharry Baby" has the same visual impact as a broad-leaved houseplant.
Botanical Name: Doritaenopsis x Phalaenopsis ‘Spirit’
Care and Feeding: This orchid prefers high humidity, making it a good choice for the bathroom (make sure you have good air circulation anyway). Fertilize every time you water with half diluted.
Design Tip: Choose a plant with a highly curved stem for a stylish presentation.
