car­ing for a Pre­cious bloom

Landscape (UK) - - In The Home -

Sum­mer presents chal­lenges for or­chids that can be eas­ily over­come. It is com­mon for the leaves to be scorched in bright win­dows. If they dis­colour, the plant can be moved to a spot in in­di­rect sun­light. Over­wa­ter­ing is a com­mon prob­lem, and the plant re­quires only an egg-cup­ful of wa­ter ev­ery week. A light mist­ing ev­ery few days helps recre­ate its pre­ferred hu­mid con­di­tions.
