Light is probably the most important variable in orchid care. The number of hours of light exposure, and the intensity and quality of the light, have a major impact on a plant’s growth and overall health.
Orchids can usually live in the same pot for at least a year or two without any problems. But sooner or later, your orchid will outgrow its pot, or its potting mix will start to break down. That’s when you’ll need to repot it.
Orchids can be quite fussy about the type of pot they live in. In general, they require good drainage and plenty of free airflow around their roots. This helps to prevent root rot and ensures their sprawling root systems have plenty of room to grow.
