Plant Pots with Holes for Orchids

The story seems to be that orchids are impossible to grow, that they will die no matter what. Well that is just rubbish! We have asked around to find you the best tips for keeping your orchids alive, with tips coming from grandmothers, friends & botanists.

Use Pots With Holes: Orchids thrive in most environments but you never want them to be sitting in water. The carefully placed holes all around our orchid plant pots allow air to reach the aerial roots and help water to evaporate. WE are not going to lie though, orchids can and do thrive in all types of pots, just adjust the way you water!

Choose The Right Size: Orchids like to be planted tight in their pots. Choose an orchid plant pot that leaves only a small amount of space for soil or bark chips around the root. If your pot is larger, plant more than one orchid in the same pot.

Terracotta or Glazed? This is primarily an aesthetic choice, but remember that terracotta will need watering more often.

Water Often, Drain Well: Please dont follow that ice cube marketing  B.S! Keep your orchids moist. Check them often. Don't let them stay dry for more than a day, also don't let them sit around in a puddle of water for more than a day.

Use Orchid Planting Medium: We recommend a mixture of Bark, Sphagnum Moss and Coconut Coir, and some Pearlite if you have it. If you are using a pot with only one drainage hole, go light on the Coconut Coir as it can really hold the water.

Light, Get it Right: Orchids love bright indirect light. They burn easily in full sun, and dry out really fast.

Choosing one of our orchid pot with holes will help make sure you don't drown your orchid!
