Welcome to Everyday Orchids! This is my site about basic orchid care, where I cover essentials like how to repot your orchid, lighting and watering tips, fertilization and more. I also give you solutions to top orchid problems like orchid leaves turning yellow, orchid pest infestations, and disease. You’ll also learn about topics like seaweed fertilizer for orchids, using neem oil and ground cinnamon to treat pests, and whether or not ice cubes are good for orchids. I also provide basic orchid care guides for some popular species.
So, how did I get into orchids in the first place? Well, my first orchid was given to me in college and ever since then, I’ve been hooked.
My current “day job” is fast-paced and high-stress, probably like many other jobs out there. Caring for my orchids, garden and other plants is my way to relax and take my mind off of things. I love seeing my orchids in bloom and seeing those first flower spikes start to grow never ceases to bring me joy. Those beautiful orchid flowers are a wonderful reward and a confirmation (to me) that I must be doing something right.
When my orchids are not in bloom, I enjoy caring for them and trying to give them everything they need in order to bloom again. I have a lot of different houseplants and an outdoor garden, but orchids, by far, are my favorite plants to care for.
Through the years, I have learned, through trial and error and research, how to properly care for my orchids. I’ve learned tricks to help them thrive and get them to rebloom each year. Growing orchids can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. I am by no means an expert, but I do want to share with you what I’ve learned.
By sharing some tips and basic information, I hope to help make Everyday Orchids an incredibly helpful site for everyone who visits. I am also still learning as I go, so in some ways we will be learning together. As I encounter new situations with my orchids, I will write about them here on my site.
I am thankful for the opportunity to share my knowledge and love for orchids here. Working on this site has been a labor of love. Welcome to Everyday Orchids and thank you for visiting.
