Just Add Ice | Phalaenopsis Orchid Care

I feel like I hit the jackpot.  I signed up for the Gardening club at Home Depot and a BOGO coupon was emailed to me for orchids.  For you non-coupon people BOGO stand for Buy One Get One – Get one FREE that is. 

An orchid is an expensive plant when it comes to my budget, so I’ve never purchased one before, but when I saw the BOGO I just had to have  it.  The orchids were $14.98, so that was quite a savings for me.  And they are just beautiful. One has green outer petals and a yellow center and the other pink petals, with darker pink center. 

The photos I took of them do not due them justice, but if you go to the website below you will see just how beautiful they really are.

Here’s a link to the website they recommend for caring for your orchids.  I have never heard of watering a plant by just adding ice cubes.  It’s a very interesting website with tips to trigger re-blooming, how to repot your orchids, and trouble shooting, just in case something should go wrong.  Just Add Ice | Phalaenopsis Orchid Care  This is the link for all you orchid lovers out there or for you newbies like me, that don’t have a clue what to do with orchids.
