Seemingly so, It's more difficult to keep an orchid alive than most believe. My trick is to not move the orchid once you've found it's home. They are delicate and temperamental plants that like to stay in a familiar environment. You may give them a spritz from time to time, as we ladies love our Coco Channel!
My trick to watering…. I put one purified water ice cube next to the stem of the plant and let it melt on its own. Seems to have always worked for me!!
Orchids tend to bloom once a year. After their blooms have fallen off, you can cut the orchid down to it's stem, where the leaves are, and continue watering on a weekly bases. As long as the leaves remain green, you will watch your orchid re-bloom it's beautiful delicate flowers.
