    Default Fertilizing and watering for mounted orchids.

    I have some mounted and some growing in LECA. I would like to seek advice on how to properly fertilize the mounted orchids? I usually water them twice a day and it's outside the house getting at least 6 hours direct sunlight in the morning.

    I also have some bare root Vanda and also located outside the house getting direct morning sun for 6 hours and water them twice a day.

    Is it ok to fertilize them every other day or every week? I will appreciate your suggestions.

    Thank you.

    I only have a couple, but I fertilize them weekly with my others.
