Want your orchids to bloom profusely all year? This magical watering tip will help! By soaking roots, watering directly, and spraying, you can ensure your orchids stay vibrant and healthy.

Materials Needed:

  • Water
  • Bucket or basin
  • Spray bottle


  1. Soak the Roots: Fill a bucket or basin with water. Place the orchid’s pot in the water, allowing the roots to soak for 20 minutes. This deep watering method ensures the roots get the hydration they need.
  2. Water Directly to the Roots: After soaking, remove the orchid from the bucket and let it drain. Then, water directly to the roots by pouring water slowly into the potting mix. This targets the roots and prevents overwatering the leaves.
  3. Spray the Leaves: Fill a spray bottle with water and spray the orchid leaves lightly. This helps maintain humidity and keeps the plant hydrated.


  • Deep Hydration: Soaking the roots ensures they absorb enough water for sustained growth.
  • Targeted Watering: Directly watering the roots prevents water from sitting on the leaves, reducing the risk of disease.
  • Humidity Maintenance: Spraying the leaves helps maintain the humidity levels orchids love.


  • Frequency: Perform this watering routine once a week to keep your orchids thriving.
  • Observation: Check the potting mix regularly. If it feels dry, you may need to water more frequently.

Using this magical watering tip by soaking roots for 20 minutes, watering directly to the roots, and spraying the leaves will help your orchids bloom beautifully all year round!
