Orchid house plants
Well I have to say house plants are not my specialty particulary orchids do we have any expert grows amongst us.
Since starting at my new garden 4 weeks a go I have become the orchid res up centre as it appears that the lady of the house keeps her orchids for a few weeks till the flowers die back then she throws them out.
So far I have rescued 10 I have 4 at home and 6 in my greenhouse /rescue centre I know some but any tips greatly appreciated if they come back know I am going to donate them to the elderly or school cheers lester
I have only one , it sits on the bathroom windowsill and get the odd drop of water when I think of it , I rescued it from the throw out shelf in Ikea and it has flowered on and off for the last 3 years. . Underwater it seems to be the answer
Help still needed I now have more orchids are there any tips on keeping them alive should I put them in bigger pots should I clip some of the roots.
Should I feed them any help will really help perhaps if they do well I could give them to a worthy cause thanks as always Lester
Not sure the best way for them. I keep them on a north facing window and water occasionally. They flower regularly. My friend keeps them on a south facing window and so do hers. Don't repot. They need to be rootbound I think. Every so often I cut some of the aerial roots off when they get too many and look untidy. Not much the help!
