A typical Orchid Day runs from 11:00 to 15:30 and includes two talks about ‘orchid care in the average home’ and repotting demonstrations followed by Q&A. People are also invited to take along their own orchids to get any problems they may be experiencing diagnosed by an expert, like an ‘Orchid MOT’.

The advice is easy to understand, free from jargon and is supported by complimentary leaflets for people to take home.

Growth Technology’s top three orchid care tips are:


Don’t overwater. More orchids are killed by over-watering than anything else.


Orchids benefit from a correctly balanced and quality feed, however, it’s important to water between feeds.


Keep the orchids out of direct sunlight. Partial shading and filtered light are the best conditions.
