Yvonne, I checked orchids on that site. there was one that looked like it just cut the leaves and put it in the bottom and then cut the flower stalks and added water.

The other container ones looked like they used the orchid bark mixture. 

Hope this helps.

Help- I just repotted my orchids with bark I purchased at a orchid show, now all the lower leaves seem to feel limp. Any suggestions?

i think I picked these up at 2 for $20 or $25. Hubby bought them for me at a orchid show.

Though my orchid still isn't fully standing tall, hubby was able to get me a decent picture of it.

Very pretty orchid Pat. Yes, I agree they do teach us patience. Robin, I can't wait until I see your orchid too!

Oh that is even better. I love it when a plant has a fond memory to go with it.

Happy Anniversary!

I'm so excited because this orchid was a gift from the wedding reception of my husbands nephew who got married one month after we did.  So it is going to be in bloom for my 1 year anniversary and for theirs.  So nice!

Pretty Pat, isn't it exciting when they bloom.

Comment by Pat on March 10, 2012 at 9:28pm

My first orchid is blooming.  The only thing I have done is keep it next to a NW window and water with 3 ice cubes every Sat.

"You're right, Keryn. 90 F feels really hot and uncomfortable to me, whereas I'll bet that is comfortable for you. And I am so jealous that your winter daytime temps are 50 to 65F. Our daytime winter temps in the coldest months (January and…"
