Thank you thefish1337, Dimples, and Ray for your information and opinion.

Ray, the nutrients found in tap water varies from location to location here. I also want to reuse waste.

thefish1337, yes, I will heat the eggshells on a pan to make it color brown.

So, to confirm, this solution won't be too strong or harmful to orchids?

Yes, it might be too strong for orchids. It might have too much acid and kill them. You need to first measure the pH of the diluted solution you plan to apply to orchids.

recommended range is 1:500 up to 1:1000. I would stick to the more dilute rate.
