Culture Notes

Everyone has a  unique environment in which to grow their orchids. These notes are written for a typical Sydney environment and you should consider your own specific climate conditions and determine the optimal light, water and fertilizing regime for your plants. Remember, we all learn by experimentation!

That said, your success rate will greatly improve if you research where your particular orchid normally grows and what the climatic conditions are like in that particular location/country.
