How to Keep Your Orchid Wall Hanging Alive
Light: Phalaenopsis orchids like bright, indirect light. Light from an east-facing window is ideal. Like people, orchids will burn if left in the sun too long. Use a sheer curtain or cracked blinds to filter strong sunlight from a south or west-facing window.
Watering: Water your orchid when the moss feels dry and crispy. Soak roots by running the moss and bark under tepid (never cold) water for a few minutes. Allow moss and roots to dry out between waterings. Water in the morning and wipe water out of the center of the leaves to prevent rot.
Drying: Drip dry before rehanging. To prevent color from transferring to walls, place paper towels between the damp bark and the wall until the hanging is fully dry.
Feeding: Your orchid will be even more fabulous if you fertilize it with a weekly spray or fertilizer spikes that can be pushed into the moss.
Life cycle: Phalaenopsis blooms can last for months, but, unlike Jon Snow, they will eventually die. This does not mean the entire plant is dead! Continue caring for your orchid, and it will reward you with new leaves, roots, and eventually new flowers.
