Orchid Tips

There are a large variety of orchids that bloom during the fall and winter and with this in mind, feed with a fertilizer higher in phosphorous, this can aid an orchid in flower size and flower count.This is also a good time to spray for insects before bringing them inside for the winter. Insecticides can be confusing with directions for orchids not listed. Follow directions given for "ornamentals"and if scales or mealy bugs are present, you will need to treat the potting medium as well. If you still not sure what to do, look up your local orchid society, they can be a very useful guide in growing orchids.
