Reduce watering in winter as they dislike having cold wet roots. Moth orchids need very good drainage, so don’t let roots sit in water.
Moth orchids can flower a couple of times a year, sometimes from the same flowering stem After flowering, encourage more flowers by pruning the flower spike to just above the second node (bump on the stem) from the base.
A new branch will then emerge from that point, together with flower buds. When flowers develop, the spike can become heavy and may need support.
Don’t discard the supporting stakes and peg clips that the plants are often purchased with as they will come in handy when new flower spikes appear.
When watering, apply water below the foliage so that water doesn’t pool on the leaves or crown of the plant (which can encourage disease).
You can sit your potted moth orchid on a saucer that’s filled with pebbles and regularly add water to the saucer.
This creates a more humid environment around the orchid but doesn’t allow the roots to be permanently sitting in water.
