Orchid lovers share their best care tips for the 'tricky' plant – one thing to avoid

Proper Watering: Ensure you water your orchid correctly by allowing water to drain completely and avoiding waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

Optimal Light Conditions: Place your orchid in a location where it receives bright, indirect light, avoiding direct sunlight that can scorch its delicate leaves.

Humidity Control: Maintain humidity levels around your orchid by placing it on a tray filled with pebbles and water, or using a humidifier if necessary.

Appropriate Potting Medium: Use a well-draining potting mix specifically designed for orchids, such as bark or sphagnum moss, to prevent water retention and promote healthy root growth.

Temperature Regulation: Keep your orchid in a temperature-controlled environment, avoiding extreme fluctuations that can stress the plant.

Avoid Overfeeding: While orchids require occasional fertilization, avoid overfeeding them as it can lead to salt buildup in the potting medium, causing damage to the roots.
