The Q&A Archives: Growing orchids

Question: I am interested in growing orchids at home. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. I have (3) diffirent varieties and was wondering what kind of container would be best and just how to grow then without killing them. Thanks

Answer: Orchids are not difficult to grow if you can provide them with the conditions they prefer. The specific conditions vary depending on the type of orchid you have. Please do not try to repot until you have researched your orchids a bit. I would suggest you take a look at a book or two on orchids or begin with the information at the American Orchid Society web site.

Enjoy your orchids!
