Orchids have become a popular alternative to cut flowers, but most people throw them out after the flowers drop. I’ve learned how to make orchids reflower annually without a greenhouse or special care. I place them in moderate sunlight and feed them once a week with leftover tea or coffee.
After they start flowering again, I display them in a prominent place until the flowers drop and the cycle starts over. My orchids seem quite happy, and I’ve had some of them for a decade!
