Orchids, Orchids   1 comment

My orchids are blooming again.  The moth orchids are very easy to grow, don’t throw them away after blooming.  I cut the stems back to about 3 – 4″, leaving at least one node.  Water once a week, soaking them in the sink, then letting the water all drain out before putting them back in the windowsill.  After I’ve thoroughly wet the bark, I usually pour a little orchid fertilizer in, let it sit in that for a few minutes, then drain that as well, before returning the pot to the windowsill.  Mine are in a south window, although I don’t think they need that much sun, but since they are doing very well in their current location, I’m leaving them there.
