Growing Orchids

  1. Choose an orchid that is already a mature plant with blossoms.  Mature orchids grow much more easily than young plants. Plant the orchid in a plastic pot with holes on the bottom for proper drainage. Do not use soil, as the orchid roots need plenty of air flow for quality growth. Use a growing medium such as, peat moss.
              2. Place your potted orchids in a lot of sunlight. Orchids need lots of sun for quality leaf and
                   flower production. The orchids must have 14 hours of sunlight each day.


    3. Drought-tolerant orchids thrive best with minimal watering. Because the roots need ample airflow, too much water can drown your plants. For best results, water your orchids once a week. Add a liquid fertilizer to the water.
