Orchids need very little care.

They’re very low-maintenance plants and need watering once every week or 2 to stay happy. Fertilize frequently during the growing season. Orchids thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. If you’re growing your orchids indoors, place them near a east- or west-facing window. One of the most common mistakes people make when caring for orchids is overwatering. Orchids don’t like their roots to sit in water, so it’s important to let the potting mix dry out between waterings. Water your orchids about once a week, or when the potting mix feels dry to the touch.

Safe for pets and people!

Orchids don’t have loose pollen grains and it makes them a safe gift for allergy sufferers. Also, orchids are safe for pets.
