    Hey Kate,

    Right now, I'm watering 1x a week on Sundays, no fertilizer. They seem to be doing okay - its not super sunny here too much anymore (not like the spring, summer and fall!) so they don't need as much water. I also mist 2x a day, once in the am before work Leaves and top of the media) and once again in the evening (just the leaves). I mist frequently because I keep a fan on them 24/7 (I used to have rot issues) as long as your air is moving and your media can dry out quickly, you can follow this watering and misting schedule also

    Hey Becky,
    Thanks for the info! I'll start doing the same and hold off fertilizing. When do you usually resume fertilizing? Thanks again!
