Grow Light System

Grow Light System

 

Light is the #1 reason for failure to bloom. I use this Pro Light System to successfully bloom everything from Phalaenopsis to Cattleya orchids.

If you can’t provide enough natural light for your orchids, investing in a grow light system could mean the difference between orchids and bloom and those that don’t.

There are two things I really like about these lights. First, the lights don’t get too hot, so you don’t have to worry about burning your orchids. Second, you can adjust the lights to the height of your orchids. Since Phalaenopsis are a low light and Cattleyas are a high light orchid, you can lower the lights for Cattleyas and bring the lights up higher for Phalaenopsis.

TIP: Once your orchids are in bloom, you can move them from the lights to a location where you can enjoy the flowers.

Dyna-Gro Fertilizer

Dyna-Gro Fertilizer

Judicious use of fertilizer will help you to grow stunningly beautiful orchids. Fertilizers will enhance your orchids in every way including blooming, root systems and leaves, fight off disease and overall health.

Dyna-Gro is the fertilizer that I personally use and recommend for successfully growing orchids

​Keiki Power Pro

If you want your Phalaenopsis orchid to produce more flowers, then this item will do that.

I’ve used it many times with results. After applying this paste your orchid will produce either a keiki (a baby orchid, an exact clone of the mother plant) or, more often, flowers.

A little goes a long way, so you’ll get lots and lots of flowers with this product.

Pruning Shears

While these pruners won’t actually make your orchids flower, they are helpful for trimming the flower spike.

These are my favorite pruners! I use them all the time. They are sharp and cut cleanly every time.

These pruners feel just right in your hand. I use them when potting, to clean away dead roots, trimming flower spikes and for cutting away dead leaves.

I have scoured the internet looking for superior quality Phalaenopsis orchids available at a reasonable price. I am so pleased to recommend these orchids from Floralistic.
