I dont profess to be an expert in orchids by any stretch of the imagination, I think I have just happened across situations which these orchids prefer light, warmth and care-wise.
I water mine once per week when they are flowering (which is most of the year), along with an orchid feed. If not flowering, once every two weeks or so without feed.
I stand them in a tray of water for a couple of hours, take them out and leave them to drain before putting them back in pots. I do occasionally use the orchid leaf spray but thats mainly to clean off any dust.
Once question I do have, if anyone can answer, when can I repot them into bigger pots? Can I do it whilst they are actively flowering/sending up flower spikes?
MBodd, the roots should look plump and green, some may look dry and brown (in which case cut any of these off that you can get to), but they shoudnt look soft and brown - any ideas anyone?
