What Do I Do with My Big-Box-Store Orchid?

By drdawg

When I lecture to organizations, I always have a "Question and Answer" session at the end. Always, and I do mean always, someone asks: "My orchid (usually one bought at a big-box store such as Lowe's or Home Depot) was in bloom when I purchased it and it has never bloomed again," or "My orchid was in bloom when I purchased it and within six months, it was dead." "What did I do wrong?"

I liked your post. I didn’t know that I’d have to repot the orchids! I’ll try it!

Good luck, Shelley. I am sure you will re-pot everything successfully. If you have questions, just send me a Tree-Mail. If I don't know the answer, I will find someone who does.

If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.
