I've just bought one of those orchid drip feed thingies and now wonder if there is a specific time of year to feed them? (The orchids that is).



all types of orchid vary slightly in their requirements but as a general rule need more food in the summer months

Thanks Jen. I water it with rain water when necessary and it has flowered twice this year so I shall leave it until next Spring/Summer.

I still feed my orchids as many are still in grow mode .

I have feed for growth and feed for in bloom.

Contact me if you would like to know the name and if you want to see my orchid blog.

Most of all enjoy your orchids.

Thanks Scotkat. The last orchid I owned died through my lack of knowledge but this one seems to like it here. It has flowered 3 times this year on different stalks and is still in flower so I shall put the drip feed in it.
