Do not throw in the towel too quickly, there are several solutions so that your orchid remains flowery and does not lose its petals after a few weeks.

These are called golden rules. They are essential for your pretty flower to flourish in its environment.

– Water it at least once a week. It is also necessary to check that the substrate is wet all the time. For this, you can push your finger inside to 2 cm.

– Favor non-calcareous water: filtered water or rainwater. Your orchid loves it, and especially be very careful not to wet the flowers or leaves of your plant.

– Drain your orchid. This plant abhors standing water. Especially since it damages its roots. It is essential to empty the pot when watering your flower.

– Avoid contact with the sun. The orchid certainly needs light, but it must never be exposed directly to the rays. She also does not like drafts and pollutants.
