What to do when your orchids flowers have dropped.
Do you throw your orchids out after they drop their flowers? FOR SHAME! Here is what you do: A little more sun, a little more light and a wee bit of fertilizer. Give it a weak fertilizer (a 20-20-20 or a fertilizer marketed for African Violets) and a spot closer to the window or outdoors under indirect sun. Water a few times a week (though do NOT get it soaking wet) and before you know it, that old orchid you were about to throw out will reward you with another show.

Mason Jar Soil Test. I did this years ago when I first started gardening. I ended up adding sand to my garden spot. I have had poor soil conditions for the last 10 years or so and have added organic material and composted material to improve my soil condition. The mason jar test is a great place to start.
