Orchids

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.
