The “Spray Orchid” or Dendrobium orchid is particularly popular because of its delicate scented flowers and long flowering period. They are easy to look after if you understand their natural habitat, and will bring you joy for many, many weeks.

These orchids like some light, but prefer to be out of direct sunlight, a bright room or east or west facing windowsill is best. Although quite content in warm rooms, the cooler the room (within reason) the longer the flowers will last.

How often you need to water will depend on the room conditions. Typically about half a teacup a week in the summer and less in the winter, but make your own judgement, by feeling the weight of the pot. Try feeling the weight when dry and when well-watered and then try and keep it half-way in between. Water from the top and let the excess drain out through the lightweight compost. These orchids have aerial roots that were built to hang in the warm moist air of the swamp so they will do well in kitchens and bathrooms.

Once your orchid has finally finished blooming remove the spent flowers right back to the stem and find a nice out of the way spot with an even temperature for them to rest. With a bit of luck they should reflower again within a few months.

Problem Solving:

The most common problem with orchids is overwatering, so keep them quite dry and never allow the roots to sit in water. Hot tip – try putting a damp rag or sponge underneath the pot and within the pot holder. This keeps the roots moist while letting them breathe.
