Tip 3. Smart watering orchids
The love of orchids and their tropical origin should not mislead you. In most cases, orchids are sufficient to water about once a week. It is better to water the orchid by immersion in water or by the method of showering, while the first method is much simpler and more reliable.

To assess the smell of phalaenopsis tetraspis, you will have to wait until the 3rd – 4th day after the beginning of dissolution. The smell and its nuances change from the first flowering on one peduncle to the last, as a rule, enhancing grassy and vanilla notes (from flower to flower).
And the most pleasant surprise from this type of phalaenopsis is the aroma not of the night, but of the day. It appears only in sunny weather at the height of the day and pleases before sunset.
