Yvonne, the daylilies should have gotten to you within 2 days of shipment so that seems right on schedule. They are tough, don't mind heat/sun. I do mulch mine, just not deeply and not right up against the plant stalk. Full sun, plenty of water and they should do just fine for you. Happy Gardening.
that will be so fun atthe orchid show. I must check and see when they will be having one down here. i just went to a new nursery that i found. it had the reed orchids. but, i was looking for a different color than i alreay have. only found the orange. i must go to micheals today. i'm having an addiction to my garden right now. won't be showing any pics for a bit, my camera is broken. i went to dollar general today to look at garden decor. you must go, it is very cheap and unique. i got a old shoe that is a planter that has two frogs sitting on the front of the shoe. love it! only cost $8. go check it out! next week probably tuesday i will b sending u orange reed orchid. you don't have to send anything, i'm running out of room.
Yvonne what I do before I put my seeds into the soil is soak them on a wet paper towel for 2 or 3 days or longer. You can wait until you see the seeds sprout on the paper towel then put into soil. Hope this will help
Hi again, let us know what you do with the orchid and how it works out. I'm sure it'll thrive for you. I don't have any orchids here as they really resent our very very low humidity. Happy gardening! :)
Hiya! Well, I'm conflicted about that ice cube idea. I don't think an orchid would like water that cold, but I DO think it would like the nice, slow soak. I think if you can make sure to give it a nice gentle watering either way it would be happy. Good luck and post lots of pics! :)
hi yvonne, so, you must love orchids also.i'm especially in love with the ground orchids. i would be happy to send you a baby or keike. I have a bright orange ground orchid also. I will take a pic and display it tomorrow. Just let me know when you would like me to send it to you.
