Orchids in flower
« on: October 03, 2008, 07:57:15 PM »
I grow my Cymbidium orchids in the ground with great success, I do have to say that the soil here is very sandy and doesn't hold that water. This year the orchids have flowered very well. I never really know how much water and fertilizer to give them, but I find they are forgiving.

Mine are all in pots.

I only buy them if they're on the throw out table at the nursery. They're often greatly reduced once they've finished flowering but the down side is you can never be sure what you're getting.
