We suggest watering the The Moth orchid every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. Orchids in general favour a pretty moist soil; to water correctly it is advisable to water these plants by immersion, therefore soaking the containers in water up to the edge; when the water has reached the top part of the substratum we can take out the vases and let the excess water drain well.

A treatment based on mineral oil or insecticide should be applied only in cases of infesting by parasites, paying attention not to vaporize the flowers.
