That title is a little deceiving seeing as I don’t know how not to kill an orchid.
I got a gorgeous orchid for Mother’s Day and since then, I’ve been researching and trying to figure out how to keep this beauty alive.
Orchids are notorious for being hard to care for. I admit, I was a little afraid at first, but I have since wholeheartedly embraced this caring for an orchid thing.
Hey, if I can keep 3 human beings alive, I should be able to handle an orchid. Right?
I found a website all about caring for orchids and I’ve learned a few things.
1. The best time to water is in the morning
2. During dry months, water 1-2 times a week
3. Stay away from direct sunlight
4. Fertilize once a month
That is a highly condensed version of all that’s out there about orchids. Honestly, it’s a bit overwhelming, so I’m just going to stick with the basics.
Do you have an orchid? Any tips?
