        Orchid Care Tips - The Different Types Of Orchids

        There are two different orchid types: terrestrial or ground orchids and epiphytic orchids.

        Epiphytic orchids grow on top of other plants or even on rocks. Their roots are not in the soil. Their so called air roots anchor them to the tree or rock. This is important to know because you have to mimic these conditions to grow orchids successfully. This means that you can't plant them into ordinary potting compost. They need a coarse orchid potting mix that allows plenty of air to get at the root and that holds its structure well. It also means that they need small amounts of water and nutrients. Examples for epiphytic orchids are Oncidium and Phalaenopsis orchids.

        Ground orchids also prefer a light, humus rich soil that is low in nutrients. Most common ground orchids are Paphiodelium and some varieties of Cymbidium orchids.
