A Humidity Tray

If you intend on growing orchids indoors then consider growing orchids under lights. Some types of orchids need extra light, or more light than comes through your window. If this is the case then you will need to buy some lights. Buying lights meant specifically for orchids can be expensive. They are not really necessary orchid growing supplies; you can also make your own lights system at home.
Another important supply is fertilizer. You need to consider a fertilizer made for orchids. Other fertilizers can be too rough for orchids. Whatever the fertilizer you choose to add to your orchid growing supplies use it only at half to quarter strength. You should use the fertilizer only once a week. Remember that orchids are sensitive to too much fertilizer and you could kill your plant with too much fertilizer.

Ventilation of the roots and drainage are two important parameters that you should consider when purchasingcontainers. You can find pots meant specifically for orchids at nurseries and garden supply stores.
