I had never had Orchids until my husband came back from a business trip and brought back cut Orchids from Bangkok and and then I became hooked on these beautiful flowers.
I was amazed how long the cut flower Orchids lasted. I can remember still having some blooms left after 6 weeks! Having got the bug, I started looking at Pot Orchids and started to buy.
Let me share what I have had over the years, some I have lost but I am now happy to say that I can get re-blooms consistently on my Phalaenopsis plants. It is so exciting!
I have it down to a find art now and feed my Orchids according to this simple advice:
When pots are light and roots are white…
its time to feed to make them bright!
I have also had Dendodriums and Cambria but so far no re-blooms yet. I did have a Cymbidium one year but didn’t have much luck - I may try again sometime.
I also had this Odontonia in 2009
A birthday gift in 2010
