Monthly Orchid Care - February

To Do Now:

  1. Happy Valentine's Day! Recognize the occasion with a valentine gift certificate.

  2. Did you know that orchids can live for many years? Unlike cut flowers that fade within a week or two, an orchid can bloom for months and live for many, many years. Repotting at least once per year is critical to orchid health. Find the right mix for your orchid here.

  3. Orchid pests can be difficult to control indoors, especially in winter, as most insect sprays are too dangerous for indoor use. Staying vigilant and keeping a close eye out for pests is a good way to stop an outbreak right away. Physically removing pests from orchids by cleaning plants under a stream of water can be helpful. Unfortunately, the bugs will likely return since removing adults usually leaves behind their eggs. Treatment for bugs should be repeated every few days until there are no longer any signs of trouble. We offer all natural GET OFF ME! Pest Control Spray made from cinnamon and ultra pure WASH ME! Leaf Cleaner. These all natural products can be used safely indoors because there are no poisons. If you have a problem with Fungus Gnats in your orchids or house plants please see our Natural Fungus Gnat Control solutions.

  4. Winter is an ideal time to participate in an orchid society. To find one near you, look on the local society page of the American Orchid Society.

Looking Ahead:

  1. March will be here soon and it is a great time for repotting orchids. Take this opportunity, before April showers turn to May flowers, to get your orchid repotting done. Our orchid care repotting section, complete with orchid repotting clinics, and orchid care videos can help make the task easier.

  2. Mounted orchids are fun and beautiful. Take a look at our care sheet on mounted orchid care. We have orchid supplies for all your mounting needs, including virgin cork tubes. We can even custom cut cork to fit your needs.

  3. Orchid pests can be difficult to control indoors, especially in winter, as most insect sprays are too dangerous for indoor use. Staying vigilant and keeping a close eye out for pests is a good way to nip an outbreak right away. Physically removing pests from orchids by cleaning plants under a stream of water works well, however the bugs will likely return since removing adults usually leaves behind their eggs. Treatment for bugs needs to be repeated every week until there are no longer any more signs of trouble. rePotme offers our exclusive all natural GET OFF ME! Pest Control Spray made from cinnamon as seen in Orchids - The Bulletin of the American Orchid Society. This spray can be used alone or mixed 50/50 with rubbing alcohol to increase its effectiveness. Unlike harsh chemicals, GET OFF ME! is all natural and can be used indoors. Follow up treatment with WashMe! Natural Leaf Cleaner for a comprehensive approach to natural organic pest control.

Looking Back:

  1. Did you get a beautiful orchid in bloom as a gift? If you don't know what kind it is please use our handy orchid identification reference to find out. We like to repot new acquisitions right after they go out of bloom. The orchid identification reference will point you to the ideal mix for your new orchid.

  2. Winter's grey days can take their toll and Physan 20 can really help if opportunistic fungal or bacterial rot try to creep in. Need supplemental light? Our Orchid Grow Lights may be just what your orchids need.

  3. With so many orchids in bloom at this time, now is an excellent opportunity to get organized. Our orchid label system and clever custom plant labels make organizing an orchid collection a breeze.

“I received the potting mix and I have to say that it is wonderful!! I was skeptical to spend a little extra money for the bark mix when I can go to Lowe's and get it for a fraction of the price. But...your mix speaks for itself! So clean, nice and easy to work with. It's the best and I plan on buying for you all again and again. Thanks so much!!”
