Orchids: How to Keep Them Thriving for Years


Orchids, known for their elegant beauty and sensuality, are a popular choice for indoor plants. Originating from tropical and subtropical regions, they can flourish in your home with the right care. Here's how you can nurture healthy, blooming orchids all year round.

Understanding Orchids
Orchids, with their fleshy leaves and vivid blooms, are a captivating addition to any interior. The Butterfly Orchid, or Phalaenopsis, is particularly well-suited for indoor environments, thriving at around 20 degrees Celsius. These plants prefer bright, humid conditions but should be shielded from direct sunlight.

Reviving Orchids
To rejuvenate an orchid, encourage robust roots and new leaves by following this Asian technique:

Clean the orchid's roots and remove all soil. Trim dead roots and excess leaves, keeping only the central stem.
After cleaning the leaves, crush garlic and place it at the bottom of a glass. Add water, then strain the garlic-infused water into another container.
Soak the orchid in garlic water for about 20 minutes, then let it dry in an empty glass.
Cut the top off a plastic bottle to create a holder for the orchid's root, ensuring humidity. Mist every two days. Within a month, expect to see new roots and leaves.
