orchid watering trick
do you know the orchid watering trick?
it can turn any brown thumb into a green thumb.
it involves an ice cube.
and some indirect (sun)light.
once a week, place an ice cube at the base of the potted orchid.
if you have two in a pot or a particularly large orchid, use two ice cubes.
don't water the orchid.
just place an ice cube at the base once a week.
of course, keep your orchid in indirect sun or other light.
this one is growing in a dark corner of our living room
with the help of a lamp.
happy orchid growing!
they are my house plant of choice.
