Make sure to check back!

Hey everyone,

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 at myfirstorchid@gmail.com. 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  orchids which produces a myriad of problems.

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 of time linking those post in my answers 🙂

When leaving a comment or emailing – please answer these questions;

  1. How long you have had your orchid
  2. What type of orchid it is
  3. What the problem/question is
  4. How are you watering it? How much and how often?
  5. Does it have a drainage hole?
  6. 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 – 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 can only tell you what has worked for me and how I grow orchids.

Thanks,

Hannah
