The Manta More orchids belong to the Phalaenopsis family. Why is the Manta More series a ‘Next Generation’ orchid?

These plants do not like full, direct sunlight because they can burn. Place your orchid somewhere light though away from direct sunlight, such as near a window facing north. You can also shield the plant from the sun.
This orchid is a fairly easy-going, but very much likes to be dipped in water once a week. Simply put the pot into a container with a couple of inches of water. The orchid likes its root ball to stand in water for a short time, approx. 10 minutes. After dipping, you can let the water drain off.
Extra nutrition is very much appreciated by your orchid. Making all those flowers grow and bloom takes a lot of energy and this plant cannot do it all from sunlight and water alone. Add some orchid fertilizer to the water about twice a month. You can find it for sale in garden centres or florists
This plant thrives best in most interior room temperatures, not too cold (less than 15°C) and not too hot (above 25°C).
If you prune the orchid after flowering (see the drawing on the right for how much you have to cut off), it will allow the plant to bloom several times.
The orchid is not a poisonous plant, but is certainly not suitable for consumption by humans or animals.
