Tips for Growing Orchids Indoors
Bright Filtered Light
Providing natural sunlight is a key tip to ensure timely flowering of orchids, which are grown indoors. You can place them near to an east or west facing window, where orchids get filtered sunlight for maximum time. If they are exposed to scorching sun, place them at some distance away from the window.
Hoping that you have grown orchids in a potting medium with no drainage problems, water them sparingly after every few days. A simple way is to check moisture level in the top soil layer. If it is wet, wait for 1 - 2 days, and water them. Over watering orchids will damage the roots and kill them.
This can be achieved by using a room humidifier for some hours during the day. A simple alternative to switching on the humidifier is putting a water-filled tray below the orchid pot. Put some gravel in the tray, and refill water whenever required. This way, you can maintain a natural growing environment for orchids.
Inducing these tropical epiphytes to bloom calls for specific care level, but the aesthetic value of these flowers is unmatchable to others. Follow these care guidelines for growing orchids indoors and appreciate the beauty of blooms in flowering season with a long shelf life, and they will continue to brighten up the room for many days to come.
