Orchids are Awakening and Entering the Growing Season
Some time after mid-march, you'll be able to move your plants to their summer homes increasing light gradually. The annual repotting marathon is beginning, plan which orchids you're going to repot and what potting mix you'll use.

Orchid Plant Growth is Slowing
Your plants need less water and fertilizer this season, perhaps half as much as during the summer. Protect your phalaenopsis, vandas and phalaenopsis type dendrobiums at 50 to 60F and your other plants at 40 to 50F. Stake your inflorescences for best presentation of the flowers.
