The Q&A Archives: orchid fertilizers

Question: What is the best fertilizer for my orchids and should I use soil amendments along with the bark I am using?

Answer: George,

Sorry for the delayed reply. There are a multitude of orchid fertilizer blends on the market. A simple choice for many folks is to use a stand complete fertilizer such as Miracle Gro 20-20-20 at the low "constant feed" label rate. Most orchids do not grow in soil but only bark. There are some terrestrial types that do grow in soil but they are not likely what you have.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
