Hi mizzmonroe, I love your orchids. How do you care for them? I was given a flowering orchid and it hasn't flowered since! That was 3 years ago! Any ideas?

Have you fertilized your orchid??? What direction is your orchid facing??? Is the orchid sitting in water???

Thanks... it's in a bedroom in filtered light. I've heard they don't like direct sunlight? I water it every few weeks and don't let it sit in water. I have recently given it some fertiliser and it's grown a little more! Do they like a warm room? TIA

I love orchids and they were my Grandmother's favorite flower. My Mom was given one as a gift and got the flower to come back once and then was left with a stem and some leaves.. LOL!!! Wish I knew how to care for them because it was lovely 😊

@ryankellyjesse.

@chchkiwi each orchids unique even as far as what they grow out of or from down to color and temp... The reason I like them so much is it makes me get up each morning to track progress, watch them grow in fact my one orchid is in a wooden basket I have her hanging in my tree out back, honestly I don't touch her my boyfriend also named Tree lol when he waters our other plants he might sprinkle her but that's it once a month I pour half gallon orchid food on her that's it.... Some do not like water just putting two ice cubes on the top of it's roots letting it melt down that's all she needs or wants.. Some like more light then others I turn my pot or flip planter once a month too helps keep them going up right, my purple one with allllll the dark purple blooms came from Trees mom she had it in a tree it was living in a tree it dropped it's roots right down tree GREW there she had to move so she took it gave to me it is no joke living on our fence out back most of them are like AIR PLANTS they do not require much attention just watch... The one in my tree I had for Two years this first bloom I had from it in two years, they can go a while grow green but no flowers why u gotta watch lol... U see a shoot pop up it grow fast or a stalk will come out and next thing u have buds... Lotta people toss em thinking there dead sadly if it's GREEN have patience lol... My plants only thing pulls me out every day at least for a while.... I have a actual ORCHID SPECIALIST lives down way from our home I ask him once in a while what to do or what to put em in etc.. He's awesome... Hugz to all

@Chchkiwi wooooooot keep er alive behive lol... Hey any time I'm overly passionate about ORCHIDS lol.. Yup there deff a mystery I lost plenty but I think that's what keeps me going to pin point the secret but there's soooooo many kinds and they all like diff things it's all about watching looking waiting.. If ur leaves or stalk r turning yellow n brown she's dieing I try everything I can at that point but some times they just don't make it.. Sounds as tho u have a sturdy one there just keep a peek don't over water most are air livers... Go get u some orchid food it looks like crystals it resolves in water give er a drink once a month good of that I have faith u see bloom I anxiously await with u <3 hugz
