The Q&A Archives: Fertilizing Cymbidium Orchids

Question: What amount N P K should I be giving my cymbidium orchids in the month of January.In the summer I was giving them high phosphorus but have forgotten when I change to high nitrogen fertilizer.

Answer: I use a diluted 6-25-25 orchid fertilizer year around, every time I water. It's easier than trying to remember when to change formulas, and it provides the necessary nutrients in small enough doses that my orchids thrive. (Use one-half teaspoon per gallon of water and mix well before applying.)
