Every plant needs sunlight and just right amount of water. Too much water or little bit of water can make plants wither. A lot of people love gardening, but it can be a bit tedious, as well as requiring a bit more work. However, the results once the flowers bloom is absolutely worth it. I’ve also learned that playing music makes your plants happy as well! Orchids are really pretty, and after reading this article, I plan to get some myself and plant them in the backyard.
- A healthy orchid has a strong, erect stem with dark green, leathery leaves. Never buy an orchid that looks brown or wilted.
- If you notice black or brown patches, the plant is likely sunburned and should be moved to an area with lower light.
- Like watering, application of fertilizer should be reduced when blooming stops and resumed with new growth appears.
“Orchids have a reputation for being finicky, difficult plants, but many orchids are no harder to grow than your average houseplant. Start with an easy orchid, then learn the basics of growing orchids.”
