dtps. Leopard Prince Care (Beginner)
Question dtps. Leopard Prince Care (Beginner)

Just purchased my first Orchid... I love them... I have seen a couple in person this year and decided to bring them into my home from now on... I am a beginner with these little gems so I want them to have a fighting chance with me...

I purchased a Leopard Prince yesterday and I would love some input on care for her... water, lighting, fert. etc...

Please help!

I would treat a dtps like a phalaenopsis
Click here for the OB's care sheet for some basic information - http://www.orchidboard.com/Phalaenop...ure-Care-Sheet
I hope this helps ..

Hi and welcome to Orchidboard!

Sounds like we've got ourselves a new addict in the neighborhood! Wonderful!!!

Dtps is, as Dorothy says, to be treated as a Phalaenopsis. Check out the suggested culture sheet (care sheet) and take a look through our Phal or Beginner forums

There's plenty of information available.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask

Welcome to the board! I'm sure you'll be bringing orchids home compulsively in no time! Dtps. get the same care as Phalaenopsis, so you can check out the culture sheets on those. My own personal advice: Keep in the brightest light you can without direct sunlight, very lightly mist them about once a day, air movement is a huge bonus, and when you aren't SURE about whether you should water, wait one more day. Good luck!
