These days, it seems as if moth orchids (Phalaenopsis spp. and cvs.) are flaunting silky blossoms and spreading epyphitic roots everywhere, from food market florist departments to big box hardware stores and, perhaps, even to your very own home. In case you lost the instructional care tag (or worse: your plant came without one), here's a quick yet informative slideshow showing you how to give your orchid an optimal blooming environment to call home.

It's all about getting orchids to rebloom. I'm sure you can get it to flower again! Let us know when it does. Posted: 8:50 am on February 11th

greengenes writes: Great! I so enjoy orchids and all of mine are now blooming. They are great for the winter blues. But this has been helpful because I didn't know when you should repot them. All of mine have been purchased at a local grocery store and they seem to really be root bound, or ? So this has been a great help. Also one I purchased had a white scale bug and traveled to other ones and so I found out if you take a swab and dip it in rubbing alcohol and wipe them down it takes care of the problem. Well it sure did and it didn't even hurt the plant. So iam always looking for new and exciting ones! Posted: 9:57 am on January 20th
