Orchids ezpz

I've got about 16 varities of orchids that I raise. I buy them small, and grow them.This one I got while in Maui,the bloom is about 4in across. I've found an easy way to raise,bloom and split them. I mix orchid mix 50/50 with a good potting soil and plant them in quart size pots. They grow like crazy.Every time they get watered,once a week they get a shot of orchid food. They do best for me on a north faceing enviroment.

Nice. Ill second the north facing environment. We kept getting them and killing them until we bought the new house and put them on the shaded north facing patio. Now we cant kill them.

Yeah we have them all over the place now. They are not blooming as crazy as they were, maybe we need to fertilize them. What orchid food did you use?

Looken good D,You can split em when they're not in bloom. They should be split if they grow themselves out of the pot size,that will stop them from blooming. I use Better Grow Orchid food,with no urea.
