CULTIVATING BEAUTIFUL ORCHIDS FOR YOUR HOME OR GARDEN
Orchids are some of the most amazingly colourful and beautiful flowers and plants on the planet, but the important thing to note is that with everything that lives and breathes, they need to be properly cared for and you need to know what you are doing.
Orchids are not like other flowers – here are our tips :
- give your orchid plants ample water, but not when the soil is damp. Just check the soil with your finger,
- repot once a year to allow the roots to move and breathe a little,
- give your orchids some humidity, either naturally or by placing on damp pebbles, or using a spray gun,
- fertilise occasionally,
- keep an eye on your orchids and watch them flourish as you nourish.
