In this post I give the general food requirements for orchid plants. But please keep in mind that each orchid has its own cultural requirements (see the many posts I’ve created on this blog for plant specific growing guidelines).


Orchid compost does not contain fertilizer. Avoid the temptation to overfeed; as a general rule feed with an orchid fertilizer or half-strength pot plant fertilizer with every third watering, decrease in the spring and autumn and stop in the winter. Do not feed a newly-potted plant for at least a month!
