A few of our little secrets:
Keep the orchid in a place that receives natural, filtered light throughout the day. Orchids enjoy warmer temperatures and humid environments. Avoid direct sunlight and chilly temperatures. Water the orchid once a month, using a spray bottle, aim below the leaves, at the base of the plant, and spray 3-5 pumps only. Orchids from our shop are potted in sealed containers, with no draining; please be careful not to overwater. At the end of the bloom cycle, bring back the container and purchase a fresh orchid variety of your choice and we will repot it for you.
Keep the Bromeliad in a place that receives bright, filtered light throughout the day. Bromeliads enjoy relatively humid environments. Water the Bromeliad every 2 weeks, allowing the soil to dry out between watering. Pour just enough water to fill the center well of the leaves. Bromeliads from our shop are in sealed containers, with no draining; please be careful not to overwater.
The brightly colored bloom of the Bromeliad lasts for several months. When it eventually dries out and loses its color, trim it off at the base and enjoy the Bromeliad as a green plant. In time, new off shoots called, “pups” may develop to the side of the original bloom and take about 2-3 years to fully mature into a new bloom. If you’d rather not wait for the new bloom, bring back the container and purchase a fresh Bromeliad variety of your choice. We’ll repot it for you!
Place the succulent in a place where it will receive bright, filtered light throughout the day. Water every 2 weeks with a spray bottle. Gently lift the succulent to expose the roots and spray 3-5 pumps. Succulents retain water within their leaves, so they do not need a lot of water. It is important to let them dry out between watering to prevent rotting.
