My Orchid is not happy
Closed

Hubby bought me a beautiful Orchid for our wedding anniversary in December, I love them. In SA I would take them into the garden and plant them at the base of a tree and they would be so happy and flower away. This one is on a table by the window. One leaf has drooped terribly like a floppy ear. Leaves are still a rich green but is clearly not happy. I feed it with orchid water once a week and spray with orchid mist twice a week. Made no difference at all! Any green fingered folk here who can give me some advice?

"My orchid is not happy" sounds like a secret password challenge between two spies in Hyde Park. The correct response is probably "The gingerbread man sees and hears nothing". Okay, so that's no help at all. Sorry.

Place your orchid in tepid water once a week and bang the pot so the water drops out. Use the feed you can buy in homebargins or give it mild solution of cough mixture and wster. Few drops in water.

depends on the variety I kept them for years and they thrived on neglect lol, warm tap water at the base and a bright but not sunny windowsill.

They don't like dry heat, try putting it in the bathroom if you have enough light, it needs humidity.

They seem to like a windowsill in good light but not direct sunlight. In my experience they also seem to thrive on neglect!
