I'm attempting orchids - I've alway thought they were beautiful.

If anyone else has had success with Orchids I'd love to hear what works for you. I've seen so many different/conflicting things in books or on-line, sigh, I'm not sure what works best.

Re: Orchids
They died, but that was due to me not being able to take care of them while I was on crutches.

Re: Orchids
I have new ones now.

One plant has deep burgundy/purple flowers, the other has white with purple streaks & centers.

Re: Orchids
Good luck! They are beautiful, and I can't grow them.

Re: Orchids

I've killed an air fern & a resurrection plant in the past. I hope I do better with these.

I need to re-pot my orchids.

Re: Orchids
I was planning on repoting them, but one has blooms again!

I've also bought 3 tiny orchids (2 1/2" pots)

Re: Orchids
Orchids are the most elegant flowers. They say it's healthy to talk to plants as they breathe in what we exhale. Also, don't water them from above.

Re: Orchids
One of my little orchids that I got a year ago (almost) is going to bloom again & so is one of my big ones!
