    I have very recently acquired the orchid addiction. And proudly purchased one of your creations. Although I have nearly murdered 2 orchids I had previously attained, but can hopefully say with the guidance of a book am investing daily efforts which appear to be giving a second chance to 1 which I had under watered and to 1 which I had over watered.
    So do I follow the instructions from whence I purchased the beauty: water every 3 weeks. (I’m assuming to water thoroughly and ensure proper drainage before replacing clear plastic pot inside decorative planter which has no means of drainage.)
    I know I’m long winded but I seriously need some guidance! Phalaenopsis is planted in bark material, and thankfully I have only lost 1 bloom and 3 to be blooms which just dried out and fell off. I know it seems obvious to water it but that is exactly how the over watered plant behaved, until all the blooms fell off.
    Please help I am desperate and do not wish to be known as the orchid murderer. They are so beautiful and I love them so!
    Thank you.

    What type of orchid do you have? Typically, orchids do require almost daily inspections and attention to detail of some sort to thrive well, along with the normally known usual light, temperatures, fertilizer, and air movement. I have grown orchids in greenhouses, under lights, and on the window sill for many years. My first Bletilla bloomed out for me when I was 12. that was 41 years ago and I have been around orchids ever since. If you look up your local chapter of the American Orchid Society and attend a few meetings and attend their shows, I have found that most will be more than glad to help you cultivate your addiction.
