Orchids

I am going to let you in on a secret.  It’s the secret to caring for orchids- and not just keeping them alive, but allowing them to flourish! I have posted about orchid care in the past, but in the last 6 months I have changed up my routine and it seems to work wonderfully! Here it is.

Every 10 days, I fill the sink full of cold water.  I take the orchids out of their decorative pots, so they are just in the plastic pots and set them in the sink for 10 minutes.  I then drain the sink and allow the orchids to dry overnight before I put them back in their pots.

Also, every other watering I feed the orchids.  After the watering, I dissolve one teaspoon of Grow More orchid food in a gallon of water. I pour the food onto the base of each orchid and let them dry overnight as I would a usual watering.

I am not a green thumb- so if I can grow orchids, you can too!

Do you have any tips to growing indoor plants?
