Seasonal Orchid Care



Seasonal Orchid Care



Long before there was the internet, monthly checklists of orchid care were a staple of AOS orchid information. These checklists have long been a regular feature in the AOS publications. Because plant growth and flowering is in tune with the changing seasons, these monthly checklists will remind you of what needs to be done when in your orchid collection throughout the year. If you are an AOS member, you also recieve the excellent monthly checklist written by Tom Mirenda, orchid curator at the Smithsonian Institution.



Organizing orchid culture and its chores by season is a convenient way to make sure that your orchids get the proper care at the right time. Becoming in tune with your plants' growth cycles creates a connection with the natural world and makes you a better grower.
