The Bamboo orchid is available in different colors. This exotic orchid blooms from top to bottom. Due to its beautiful flowers, the Bamboo orchid gives any interior a beautiful twist. Moreover, the care is very simple.
The Bamboo orchid tolerates a lot of light, but do not place it in direct sunlight in the spring and summer. The plant likes a cool, airy environment. The ideal temperature is between 15 and 20ºC.
The Bamboo orchid blooms for about 6 to 8 weeks. When the flower stem has finished flowering, the flowers will fall off by themselves. Place the plant in a light place where it is around 10 to 15ºC in winter. Do not let the plant dry out, from a new shoot the orchid may give new flowers. This usually takes eight to twelve months.
Watering is best done by immersing the plant in lukewarm (tap) water. Let the plant stand for a while and then drain well. Watering every 5 days is sufficient in summer, and once every 7 days in winter.
The Bamboo orchid does not thrive in a pot that is too large and will even remain in the same pot for 2 to 3 years. Repotting is therefore only necessary when the Bamboo orchid really no longer fits in the pot.
When the Bamboo orchid is in full bloom, the plant asks for special orchid food once every two weeks. In winter you can halve the amount. You can dissolve these in the water.

Give the Butterfly Orchid a light place, but never put the plant in full sun. The ideal temperature is between 18 and 22ºC.
The Butterfly Orchid blooms for about 3 months. To get the Butterfly Orchid to bloom again, it is necessary to cut the branch above the second or third “eye” from the bottom. The orchid can bloom again after 4 to 6 months. Place the orchid in a somewhat cooler place after cutting. The “cooling” stimulates new branch formation. After about two months you can return the orchid to its old location. Water the Butterfly Orchid a little less after cutting. If the orchid is returned to its old place after about two months, the regular watering can be started again.
Watering is best done by immersing the plant in lukewarm (tap) water. Leave the plant in the water for 10 to 15 minutes and then drain well. Never leave leaked water in the overpot. Watering every 5 to 7 days is sufficient in summer, and once every 7 to 10 days in winter.
Repot the plant if it gets too big for the pot. Or when your orchid has finished flowering and no longer produces new flower stems. Carefully remove the plant from the pot and avoid damaging the roots. The Butterfly Orchid likes a light mixture of tree bark and peat or coconut chips. Never use regular potting soil.
Once a month the Butterfly Orchid asks for special orchid food. In winter you can halve the amount. You can dissolve these in the water.
