Watering: Orchids generally prefer a moist but well-draining growing medium. It's crucial to avoid overwatering, as excessive moisture can lead to root rot. Allow the top inch of the growing medium to dry out slightly between waterings, and then water thoroughly. Adjust the watering frequency based on the specific needs of your plant and the environmental conditions in your home.

Humidity: These orchids prefer high humidity levels. To increase humidity, you can place the orchid pot on a tray filled with water and pebbles, ensuring that the pot doesn't come into direct contact with the water. Alternatively, using a humidifier or grouping plants together can help create a more humid microclimate around the orchid.

Light: Amber Jewel Orchids thrive in bright, indirect light. They prefer moderate levels of light, so placing them near an east or west-facing window where they receive filtered sunlight is ideal. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight, as it can cause leaf burn.

Temperature: This orchid species prefers warm temperatures ranging between 65°F (18°C) and 80°F (27°C). Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations, as it can harm the plant.

Toxicity: The Amber Jewel Orchid is generally considered non-toxic to humans and pets. However, it's always a good practice to keep any plant out of reach of children or curious pets to prevent accidental ingestion.

Origin: The Amber Jewel Orchid is native to Southeast Asia, specifically Malaysia, Borneo, and Sumatra. It grows naturally in tropical rainforests, typically in shaded areas with high humidity.
