Helping Your New Orchid Plant Thrive

We love orchids and they are among the most popular plants and flowers on our website.   Helping them last longer is something that everyone wants to do!   There is much written online about watering and although we realize there are many opinions, we strongly recommend this one very simple approach.   For each stem on your orchid plant, once a week place two ice subes at the base and allowe them to melt fully to wate the plant.  Watering with other methods of additional quantities almost always gives your orchid plant 'wet feet' and over time this will cause it to wither and deteriorate.  Conversely, orchid plants that are properly watered using the ice cube method tend to last much longer, and appear much healthier!
