Will orchids do good in Zone 5. I'm in Colorado, close to Colorado Springs.

I have two phals.One I've had for a year and a half, the other about 6 mos. They are still in the clear plastic pots they were in when I bought them. They are both still blooming. When do I repot them? What is the best type of planter? Should I use another clear plastic or ceramic? I would love some advice.

Hello Kay and Cheryl,
Think of orchids as air plants they like being in pots w/slots on the bottom and mix of charcoal and coconut cips no Earth.Water mist spray every day at first and once a week give water so roots and all get soaked never to cold water this should get you're Babies back i feed w/Miracle grow mist it ever 3months roots only.
Happy Gardening,Page

Thanks for your comments, ladies! I will have to get some orchid mix unless anybody has a suggestion of how to make your own. I have potting soil & wood chips for reptile cages? This orchid is a small phal & it is in the pot it came in. I don't really care for it anyway because it is too tall & top heavy. It looked so healthy when I bought it. I hope I can keep it going. I am a lifelong gardener, it kind of runs in my family. I went to school for it, but couldn't make a living at it, so it's my hobby. I'm not used to having this many failures with plants, but I don't have any experience with orchids. This one looks & feels dry to me, but it is packed into this pot so tightly, it's hard to tell.

I work at Lowe's and recently picked up a Phal that was marked down because the flower had died back. I would like to have someone give me some pointers on care and getting it to rebloom.

I'm sure all geographies are required from the publishers. One is on the road for about thirty days. I could insist on FLA.
