Hello this is nicholas osborn. I recently perchased my orchids from a store. Ive been trying my best to look after them and atm they seem to be ok. But im very paranoid that they are not doing so well in health and i would appreciate any options and pointers. I will upload each picture of my orchids. I have also treated the roots that i think sufferd from rot. I used hydrogen peroxide and repotted them all .Thank you in advance
It is perfectly normal and healthy for roots to come over the top of the pots.
I water mine once a week,and feed when they are not flowering.don't know if it's correct but it's worked for me in the last 20 years .
Anyway your plants look better than the one I picked up for a quid this week. But my mission is to nurture it back to life lol.
morning sun so east facing is best, all other sides especially north will kill your orchids from everything I have read.
I'm going for west facing with a netted curtain.
I think the biggest challenge is keeping to remember to water them every few days all year round. That's what killed my last one very quickly
I am a big fan of hydrogen peroxide but like said you need to be careful with the dose, too much and you are doing more harm than good. Most people don't even use it just fine.
Dilute it down, at 0.3% it will still be doing its job but at 3% your plant will recover from the "hot" bath for a week.
