With the right care, our orchid plants can last for many years, making them both beautiful and practical house plants.
Indoor orchids should be kept in a light position, but away from harsh, direct sunlight which can damage the flower stems. A windowsill in a north, east, or west-facing position is a good spot for orchids.
Your plant will arrive in a ceramic orchid pot with bark compost; do not add too much water. The compost should be kept moist but not wet; only add more water when the top inch is dry.
When orchid flowers start dying, you can gently remove them from the stems. To encourage your orchid to re-flower, cut the stems down to below the brown part of the stem. This will allow new shoots to grow and emerge from the stem. Alternatively, you can cut the orchid stem down to its base, and it will grow a brand new flowering stem within a few months.
If you see orchid roots emerging from the pot, you may want to consider repotting your orchid into a larger pot. This should be done when the orchid isn't flowering, as orchids tend to be more delicate when they are in bloom.
