Hello, I have been unintentionally killing orchids of different kinds for years. I love them and I've looked up many times in many places on how to care for them and I've even gone to a nursery and spoken to a person there who knows how to care for orchids but my orchids all end up in the same place. I'm hoping and praying I can learn how to not kill them and feel confident to have them adorn my house again. I do occasionally receive them as a gift and it does trouble me because I am just afraid of how it's going to turn out. But as you see I've not given totally up yet. I do love them and when I see them at the store I want them but I'm holding back until I learn more about their needs. I don't overwater. I probably underwater. I've taken them out of their pots and looked to see their roots and put them in water and then repotted them but they seem to not appreciate that either. I have one orchid that looks alive with no blooms and one that is on it's last leg....maybe toe.
