Care and Handling – Orchids Oncidium
Please have someone available to receive and process the boxes on the delivery date.
Fresh cut Oncidium orchids should be handled as little as possible.
Upon receiving your package, open boxes immediately.
- Simply remove wrapping sleeve, cut 1/4 inch (approximately 1 cm) from the stem, put in clean vase of warm water, and arrange.
- To prolong the vase life of your blooms, recut the stems ½ inch, clean the vase and replace its water every three days.
- Never place your orchids where there might be a warm draft, such as, the top of a refrigerator or beside a heating vent. Fresh flowers last longer when they are at room temperature or lower.
Place flowers in a cool place - maintain blooms in an area with a temperature between 54 and 74 Fahrenheit (12-23 Celsius).
