LisaLisa came over as part of the KFJC alumni posse that had a reunion party at my house Saturday. showed me how to care of my orchids! I have Phalaenopsis ... the ones with the wide flat leaves and green tentacles crawling over the edge of the pot.
You water them once a week, or whenever the medium they are planted in is dry.
Do NOT wet the leaves! Do NOT spray them.
Once a month, you do the same type of watering, but with Orchid food.
When you cut the dead sprouts, you cut above the second flower.
and that is all ... simple, eh?
