Basic Orchid Care
Did you receive an orchid for the holidays? Congratulations! Your orchid will fit in well with your other house plants and will do just fine if you keep in mind these things. One of the most common and popular orchids to give is the Phalaenopsis orchid, also called a moth orchid. Often times, these orchids are potted in clear plastic containers filled with moss. One way to disguise the plastic pot is to double pot your plant in a more decorative container. Once you are ready to repot your orchid, select a container that is slightly larger than the original pot. Orchids like to be "snug" in their pots.
