You have arrived at another page with information on orchid care to help you along your orchid growing journey.
This page will help you if you need information on orchid care that is more specific for various kinds of orchid genera. There are links on this page to pages for some of the more popular orchids. Caring for orchids is similar to other plants. Orchids need light, water, fertilizer and occasional re-potting. And I actually think it will help if you relate to your orchid plants by talking or singing to them. Like any living creature they appreciate being cared for and loved. I have arranged the information on the care of orchids by genus.
There is also a link to the page to Ask A Question. Here you can get answers to your orchid questions from Melissa and from other visitors to this site.
The real trick with orchids is to gain some experience and education and to be preventive with respect to problems. It really doesn't take much time or knowledge to keep them healthy.
