    Q:In the video you cut the stem almost completely. Will the stem grow back? If it does how long will it take?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Propagating, Correct, you cut just above the last node on the stem. The stem you are cutting will not re-bloom, but the plant will throw another/new stalk (spike). Depending on your weather conditions you can expect your orchid to re-spike/bloom every 8-18 months. Happy Growing!

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Steve, I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, but the moss is fine being in the sun, however it will dry out if not watered. If that does not answer your question, please elaborate some and I will try again. Happy Growing!

        Q:How long may I live my orchid in this moss ?
        by|Apr 5, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Jessy, When we ship our orchids into retailers for resale they are packed in moss because the moss retains moisture longer than "potting mix (blend of western fir bark, perlite, chunky peat, and hardwood charcoal)", and it gives them a longer shelf life in stores. However, orchids much prefer potting mix. Our recommendation is once the flowers drop off the orchid it be repotted in potting mix with a moss top dressing. Happy Growing!

          This moss is awesome for my Phalenopsis orchids. I've used it for years and have been very pleased. Home Depot used to sell it in the stores - seems it's only available online now in a 2-pack, which is disappointing. I was able to find it elsewhere locally for a comparable price, but if not available in your area then it's definitely worth ordering. The ship-to-store for free option is awesome. I have found that one package will do 4 - 5 small orchid pots. Soak the moss in water, then pot. The moss is clean with no odor. I've attached a photo that shows a newly replanted orchid in an orchid pot I bought at Home Depot.

            Had purchased this item previously at a plant store, was very excited to see that Home Depot carries it. This moss is soft and feels of high quality without any broken down "dust" as you'd get with cheap moss. As with any moss, after a while the moss becomes a bit stiff from water sediment. I've mixed this with orchid bark as well and it works perfectly. Although the brick seems small, the moss goes a long ways as it is condensed in the package.
