Can you give a few pointers on how to care for orchids? Mom got me one for Christmas and I was actually surprised that a month after the flowers fell off I got a whole new branch full! I would love to keep this going, but I know nothing about orchid care.
Watering & feeding your orchid a well as good lighting is important. If your orchid is in bark it will dry out more quickly than if’s in moss. I usually
suggest watering (room temp) once a week and let it drain, don’t let it sit in water. Always water around leaves and don’t let water sit on leaves or they will rot. (turn yellow).
I suggest a liquid feed with an N P K of 30-10-10. If your orchid has bloomed continue to water every week and feed every other week after watering. Keep your plant in indirect
light, direct sunlight is not suggested. Again there are so many varities of orchids & each have their own requirements, the NPK will be different for a Phalaenopsis and an Oncidium. Good Luck!
