Orchids growing well


By Scotkat


I have now got into a routine of feeding my orchids the 1st on the month ,this is now working well for me and in middle I give a good drench of water but their feet dont get wet by sitting in a saucer of water.

New flower spikes are starting to show.

I now have 5 Orchids.

My total is now think 13 and got down to a fine art of watering and feeding and all my orchids looking healthy.

Drench them weelky only for 10 minutes then let them drain .

I have started to change my method 1 a month give a good drench of rainwater and is liking this method .

My Cymbidiums didn't flower well last winter - I think it was because their 'holiday' outside was too cool, with all the rain we had. Unfortunately, it'll probably be the same this year! :-(

Well everyone been a while since posting but my orchid collection is now up to 13 so need to buy another to make an even number.:)

I am so thrilled got it now down to a fine art of when to water or feed.

No neglect but when pots feel light and roots white.

I am now seeing new growth.

And my Peggy Foo new and only Vanda has a flower bud and is growing so quick onloy had it a week.
