How warm should the room be?Moth orchids are tropical plants so they like it nice and toasty. The ideal temperature range is 22-24°C but they can tolerate temperatures as low as 12°C for short periods. If its leaves turn yellow it usually means it’s too cold for your moth orchid. Keeping it away from window sills in winter is a good way to avoid this. Moth orchids can tolerate quite warm temperatures (up to 35°C) if the air isn’t too dry. They can be grown outside in warm, humid, tropical climates.Outdoor Plant Profile: Bird of Paradise
1. Grow moth orchidsWinter flowering orchids are great for brightening up indoor and sheltered exterior spaces. Moth orchid (Phalaenopsis) is one of the easiest orchids to grow, thriving in temperatures of 16 to 24 degrees celsius. Keep away from direct sunlight and heaters, and increase the humidity by sitting pots on a bed of pebbles in water. Feed with dilute orchid food regularly.
