Orchid Tips by Mimi Bartel




Some orchids are fussy and difficult to grow but phalaenopsis, paphiopedilum and vandas do well in a sunny windowsill in your home. I’ve had these orchids for six years. In late winter they begin to develop a mitten and by spring, I have a full blooming orchid. I’m no expert, but I water mine weekly under the kitchen faucet and let all water run completely out.  Orchids do not like wet feet but they do enjoy humidity. In non-blooming times, I feed them orchid food about once a month. If you are trying to sell your home, orchids are a quick splash of color and add interest to brighten up your home.     Orchid Realtor.
