In fear of someone stealing my orchids off my kitchen window sill which faces the street, I've decided to turn it into my new orchid hospital.
Previously this was in the back under a porch and although it was getting lots of bright light, it wasn't an ideal environment due to it being in the south side, and success was minimal.
This new hospital in in the North Side getting plenty of light, air and an occasional shower from either my Dramm fine mister or the early morning rains.
Things are looking up and out of 7 orchids that were in trouble, 6 are starting to perk up. One is even in bloom. Maybe it's the new environment or maybe because I've taken all the sick/dying orchids and re-potted them in sphagnum moss inside net pots. Or maybe it's a combination of both, but who's complaining?
I can easily monitor from inside the kitchen:
Secret Love in Bloom ... Whadayaknow? Yay!
Once they get healthy again (note the optimism ?), I will remove from Sphagnum moss and re-pot in clay pots.
Nice hospital setup.
