Mini orchids: be surprised by their beauty

You can find orchids in different pot sizes. The most popular are orchids in pot sizes 9 and 12 centimeters and we also grow them in the nursery Kolibri Company. There are also mini orchids. These are orchids with a pot size of 6 centimeters.

Our orchids are not mini orchids, but if your orchid is happy, it is possible for a mini orchid to grow from your larger orchid! We would like to tell you more in this blog article.

Mini orchids

Mini orchids are also known as dwarf orchids and, just like larger orchids, enchant your interior with their colors. You will find them in subtle pastel shades to vibrant and deep colors. Their flowers are no bigger than a coin. Due to their small size, mini orchids fit anywhere indoors, such as on windowsills, desks or even on bookshelves.

How do you care for a mini orchid?

If you already have orchids from Kolibri Company you have at home, you probably know how to care for it. The same applies to these care tips orchids. Here are the important tips about caring for a mini orchid:

  • Light

Provide indirect light, which means that the orchids are not in bright sunlight. Are the orchids on a windowsill? Then make sure that they receive filtered sunlight by, for example, using a roller blind to block the light.

  • Temperature

Mini orchids thrive in a room temperature between 16 and 24 degrees. Avoid very cold, heat or draft.

  • Humidity

Orchids originally come from tropical climates, so they like a moist environment. Make sure the air in your home is dry. Do you put your orchid in the bathroom? Be careful that it does not remain moist for too long due to steam. If the orchid is left in a humid room for too long, it will receive too much water.

  • To water

Mini orchids need less water than our orchids. Make sure the bark has dried and only water when you see that the roots are light gray. When watering, immerse the orchid growing pot in water for five minutes. Then remove the orchid from the water and let it drain well before putting it back in the decorative pot.
