“All you need to be a successful orchid grower is patience, because orchids grow slowly and they need more time.”

   Fahri is a plant seller, plant consultant and plant designer who grows many different species of orchids, bromeliads and tillandsia in Magelang, Central Java.

His tips for growing orchids are to give them good air movement, plenty of water, light, and to fertilize them so they’ll grow and bloom. Orchids require more energy during the blooming season so they also need more fertilizer. Fahri also reminds us that orchids are not indoor plants. It’s ok if you bring them indoors when they’re blooming, but don’t keep your orchid indoors forever. When the flower is done, remember to put them outdoors again.

Fahri says: “I’m so happy to learn each and every single species, so proud when it’s growing well and starting to bloom, watching and observing them grow, every inch of it.”

> Fahri also has a YouTube channel where he gives plant tips and advice in Bahasa.
