Many New Updates made to Orchid Care Tips Website

Many new updates were made last night to Orchid Care Tips Website, including a new sister blog to this one!

Both blogs are open to comments and feedback after any post I make, and most importantly, please share these Websites with friends as Orchids are such wonderful plants and it would be nice to have everyone at ease with growing healthy Orchids at home.

Might you possibly field a call for "HELP"!?! I have had a Paph. Supersuk (Will. Matthers 'Krull Smith' x sukhakulii 'Krull Smith') for six years now. It bloomed the first year, and not again after that. I split it into three plants four years ago, and although each looks healthy (dk green mottled leaves; two of them have eight pair of leaves - 10-12" across - with a new one coming, and the smallest has six pair with a new leaf coming; all in 3in clay pots), no blooms. They are on a bay window with 75% sun. My patience is running thin :-) but I can't bring myself to get rid of them. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong.....?? Thanks much in advance!! (My Paphs and Oncidiums flower regularly....)

It sounds like you have too much light for your Paphiopedilum. Believe it or not there can be too much light without the Orchid showing signs of distress. Lower the light a bit by moving the plant away from the window, make sure you've got a humidity tray, fertilize once in a while, and hopefully in 6-12 months the plant will be doing better!

Hope this helps.
