Default Howdy!

I came to trying to grow and raise orchids by accident...
I happened to be at a garage sale in pretty cold fall weather and noticed a lady had three plants for sale.. Any indoor tropical plant should not be outside freezing! so I knew they were orchids but asked her how much she wanted for them .. so I bought three plants for 15 dollars!!
sadly I do not know what they are ... I do know they need tlc and I will be posting a HELP me thread in another section .. But for now, I am happy I found a great forum from where I can learn and hope one day years down the road I can help too!

Howdy! Male

Welcome to the Orchid Board!

When you post for help be sure to tell us:
  • Where you live;
  • Your growing temperatures day/night;
  • Relative humidity;
  • What kind of light they get;
  • How you water them, tap water, rain or reverse osmosis;
  • What is the potting medium, and how old is it.
May the bridges I've burned light my way.

Weather forecast for my neighborhood

The identification forum may be a good first stop on your journey. If you post pictures of each plant, people will be able to tell you what type they are. It’ll be a lot easier to find care info once you know what they are.
