- Position your Sedirea Japonica orchid four to eight feet from an east- or south-facing window where it can receive four to six hours of bright, indirect sunlight per day. Make sure that the spot that you choose for your orchid is positioned at least six feet away from air conditioners, heaters or drafts that could cause the growing medium for your Sedirea Japonica orchid to dry out prematurely.
- If possible, raise the humidity level in your home to between 50 and 70 percent humidity to make it hospitable for your Sedirea Japonica orchid. Fill a shallow tray with pebbles and cover the pebbles with water. Place the orchid on top of the tray, making sure that the water does not touch the bottom of the planting container. Another way to provide healthy humidity for your orchid is to place a cool-mist humidifier in the room where the orchid is kept.
- Check the moisture of the growing medium daily to determine when to water the orchid. Water the orchid when the surface of the growing medium feels dry to the touch.
Most importantly just step back and smell the orchid!
