WATERING + DRAINAGE

To determine when your arrangement needs water, feel the soil for moisture. This may require that you remove some portion of the moss or topdressing. For dry soil, water the center of each plant so the water will penetrate down to the roots.  Remember to replace any moss or topdressing that was removed.

TRIMMING + TRANSPLANTATION 

Remove yellow leaves promptly. Some plants may outgrow their container over time. In that case, transport them to a larger container and replace with younger plants.

PEST CONTROL

When watering your arrangement, look under the leaves and on the soil for insects. Immediately treat any infestation with a water based insecticide, as pests generally multiply exponentially.

LIFE EXPECTANCY 

To maximize color year-round, remove any faced blooming plants from your arrangement and replace with another colorful plant. Depending on your arrangement’s surrounding environment the usual life expectancy for blooming plants is 2-3 weeks. Orchids may last 1-2 months or more.

SUNLIGHT

The best place for your arrangement is indoors in a semi-bright to bright location. To avoid overheating and sun damage, do not place your arrangement in direct sunlight - indirect or filtered sunlight is best.

ORCHIDS IN YOUR ARRANGEMENT

To determine how often you should water the orchids in your arrangement, check to see if your orchid is planted in bark or moss. If your orchid is planted in bark it may need to be watered every 7-10 days; if planted in moss, it may need to be watered every 12-14 days. Always check the status of your orchid before watering. Orchids flourish in humidity, was well diffused or indirect bright light.
