The Care and Feeding of Loved Ones

When I first started the store, I did not know much about orchids.  I did not know a ladyslipper from a moth orchid, or that they grew in bark, or which ones were fragrant, or that the vanilla plant was an orchid.  All I knew is that they were beautiful and exotic and a little hard to come by.  Nowadays they are everywhere for sale, but, to me, no less beautiful.  I almost always have a blooming orchid in the house.  Right now I have a big arching white and magenta spotted phaleneopsis at the end of my bed.  And an almost done mini yellow "phal" (as we call them) in the kitchen.  They bring me profound pleasure.
 So if you are anything like me, over the years, you might have accumulated your share of orchids done flowering - considerably less magical with their floppy leaves and slow growing habits.  But what I am here to tell you today is that, should you find yourself in this position, now would be a very good time to start feeding those orchids some bloom food.  Start a regularly weekly feeding and chances are pretty good that come February or March you might find yourself with a beautiful blooming orchid.
In the meantime, we've got a great selection and happy to sell you food as well!
