Quick Update on the Orchids with Pics

Just a quick update on the progress of the orchids.

I’ve been experimenting by feeding the orchids compost tea only, which has been prepared organically with worm compost and worm tea added to the bucket of water.

I haven’t been using any synthetic fertilizers, or the standard blue and red fertilizers that I see most gardeners using. This is a departure from the norm, but I’ve been reading a LOT about orchid gardeners using this compost tea method with much success.

I try to apply the compost tea daily, and let it “cure” for 24 to 48 hours.

Note: I bought some pink cymbidium orchids to add to the group.
