    Hi Wanda. I think everyone is going to have their own best advice, but a consistent product we use is Miracle-grow. We also use fish emulsion and MSU fertilizer and rotate between these products throughout the year.

    Cheers,

    I've never seen Miracle-grow for orchids. Where did you get it?

    Here in the main-land US it can be purchased at just about any of the big box stores.

    The box says "Miracle-Gro® Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food".
