The orchid I bought in December...

Recommended Posts



One of my wife’s orchids just re bloomed after being dormant for a couple of years.

I’m going to repot an orchid when I get home from work, if the pot and medium arrived.

 We have never had any success with orchids, so I did some research and am going to try and get it right

I just bought a bag of orchid mix, and an orchid pot with holes in it.  Orchids like air on their roots.

Oh, and I sing to it.  Are you singing to yours?

I hum a bit..

How much sunlight does it get ?   Ours is in a bright room but not in direct sun.

Yours is beautiful  :foryou:

Way to go DH. I have a couple dozen orchids. They bloom for about a month once a year. Right now I have four in bloom.

Not much sun at all.  It lives in the bay window in our kitchen  East side of the home.  It is a semi darkish spot for a bay window.

Most of the singing happens in the kitchen.

Ours is in a corner room with south and west facing windows, but back out of direct sunlight. I know I over watered it.

What are you going to do with the medium? Are they going to tell you what you are doing wrong?

We call our house the plant hospice. It's where they come to die...

My wife calls it the infirmary.  I've taken two in from people at work.  One was a dead orchid, she worked on it for months, looked like it might make it, then it died.

Now I have a bamboo plant from someone that has been at home for months.

We have at least a dozen orchids in the house, more outside, my wife has a serious addition.

This is just a few of them that still need light, the rest are scattered.

You have a few there. This is where mine live. This is my kitchen view. I bought more vining plants and hope they do well on the fence.

We have a dozen or so small ones hanging in a tree out front.  She leaves a lot of them outside while it warmer.
