I just wanted to remind everyone that I am constantly updating these post as I gather new information, so make sure to check back! If you want updates subscribe to the blog and there is a link to my orchid Facebook page to subscribe to updates as well.
If you have a question or something is not clear please feel free to leave a comment on the blog or through email. If you have pictures then please email me – firstname.lastname@example.org. A lot of times when someone does this I end up changing a post to make it more clear or adding an entirely new post, as I recently did when someone was enquiring about dyed blue orchids.
NOTE: most people want to know why their orchid leaves are wilted, why there orchid is rotting etc. – most of these problems are linked to how you water an orchid. Before asking check out my post on watering. Most people (very common mistake) over water their orchids which produces a myriad of problems. That link is HERE.
I welcome questions but overall if you read the other blog post first on watering, fertilizing, repotting etc. it helps both of us know what is going on a little more before you ask a question. I sometimes get people who are so excited about orchids (like me) that they ask a question before reading the other blog post and then I spend a lot do time linking those post in my answers :)
When leaving a comment or emailing – please answer these questions;
- How long you have had your orchid
- What type of orchid it is
- What the problem/question is
- How are you watering it? How much and and how often?
- Does it have a drainage hole?
- Also a picture of your “troubled” orchid helps. If you can’t take a picture that is fine.
Here is a quick guide of terms for you to use when asking questions:
I also wanted give a quick note here: this website/blog is intentionally ad free and I am not an expert. I am a orchid “learner” just like you. That being said I am here to answer questions and not mediate comments left by others. I do not indorse any companies nor any any comments left by viewers. I can only tell you what has worked for me and how I grow orchids:)
