ORCHID PLANT FLOWERS CAN LAST-SEE HOW
So, you had your 5th anniversary and got an Orchid plant from your in-laws. It was beautiful and lasted maybe a month to a month and a half, and then the petals on the flowers slowly fell off. You faithfully watered but to no avail. The flowers were gone. Fear not, I learned the answer to keep them going for well over a year. Here’s how!
You have to water the plants once a week. To put in the right amount of water use ice cubes from the fridge. 3 ice cubes for each plant once a week. After the flowers fall off get some orchid fertilizer. The fertilizer I use is called Orchid Food by Schultz but there are probably many brands all the same. The instructions are on it and you put the required amount in water, as per instructions. You now have fertilizer in the water. Every second week put in the fertilizer water in the plants and every second week put in the 3 ice cubes. Do not put in fertilizer two weeks in a row. Remember use 1/3 cup of fertilizer water only every second week. In a month to a month and a half you will get new buds on your plant shortly followed by flowers. Now you know why the florist does not tell you what to do. He wants to sell new plants.
