Watering Your Orchid

True, there is a correct way, and an incorrect way to water your orchids.  However, if you have a greenhouse full of over 100 orchids, this is an impossible task at best. This is more geared to the orchid fan who has a small number of orchids in their collection and hand-watering each orchid is somewhat simple.


This discussion will focus on the rules and methods for watering.  Following these guidelines will help your orchid maintain a healthy condition all year long and most importantly during the bloom season. 


This topic will be featured in the September 2017 Napa Valley Orchid Society's Newsletter.

    My new blooms all were looking good then turned black and died off. What did I do.


    Blooms of many orchids last a week at best. Some last longer, others just a few days.

    To even come close to any answer, much more information is needed - type of orchid, be a good starting point.
