Care of Orchids

(Question)

I just recently purchased a Miltoniopsis Bert Field Am/AOS orchid and a Miltoniopsis Lennart Karl Gottling “Red Rim” orchid. Could you please tell me how to care for these lovely orchids and the perfect medium for them. Any information you could provide would be of great assistance. Thanks so much.

Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners with your inquiry.

We receive numerous posts on the care of orchids, as a result we have put together a general guide on the care of these beautiful plants:

The American Orchid Society has developed detailed care instructions for Miltoniopsis orchids species in particular:
