orchids that need more water
It's taken me about 5 years to learn that some of the orchids I've purchased need watering more often than once a week. I learned the hard way by seeing pleated leaves show up! Thus, the skewer test to determine its dryness is meaningless. So far I've come up with this list of orchids that want water at least twice a week: those in the miltassia/miltonia family, odontioda, colmanara and brassia. I realize I've probably used "family" incorrectly and maybe these all belong to the oncidium alliance. Does anyone have others that get watered fairly frequently?
