Quick Orchid Tip: Remember to always use sterilized tools on your orchid - intense heat (like the flame from a lighter) or a diluted solution of bleach can be used to sterilize them.

Quick Orchid Tip: After watering your orchid, use cotton swabs to remove excess water that gets stuck in all the little nooks of your plant! :-)
