Talkback: How to grow orchids

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:28
Just want to say that phalaenopsis/moth orchids, need to be in a clear pot, to allow light to get to their roots, as they have a symbiotic fungi on them. Also, when trimming the flowering stems of the moth orchid, trim to just above a node below where the lowest flower was. That's what has worked for me.

To OscarM..the orchids that like to be in clear pots, are phalaenopsis (moth orchids). Most other common ones will be ok in an opaque pot instead of translucent. My favourite is a Vanda, but I can't afford it, and probably wouldn't last long in my house!
