It's never to late to learn...
Default It's never to late to learn...

I'm 42, from Sweden, but I've lived in the Netherlands for the past 18 years. I've had orchids for like 15 years or so. I ended up having only orchids as it turns out I suck when it comes to plants. After all my other plants died, the only ones that survived were the orchids, which is why I only have orchids in my house and no other plants (except for cat-grass which keeps dying too, I constantly have to buy new ones).

Visiting friends and noticing their nice plants, I was thinking to myself: "it does make such a difference to a house, it looks nice, but now even my orchids have seen better days." So I figured it's time I start learning. I guess it'll even be good for me having a new "hobby" and who knows once I've figured out the orchids, I can move on to learning how to care for other plants too.

Anyway so right now I'm in the process of re-potting my orchids for the first time ever. Unfortunately some of the older ones don't have many roots left. I hope with some patience I can get them in better shape.

Welcome Monivik!

Yes, repotting after such a prolonged time is a great place to start!

Welcome to the Orchid Board! You've definitely come to the right place to learn about growing orchids, and I agree, it's never too late.
