  • Organic fertilizer for orchids

    Created by Anonymous on

    I was wondering what kind of organic fertilizer is recommended for feeding orchids. Most books on orchid care say to use a chemical fertilizer, and only to use organics “sparingly.” Does anyone have experience growing orchids organically?

    My aunt grows Orchids and she at one point was also looking for more natural alternative for a fertilizer. I suggested she try Orchid-Pro Liquid Planet food. I have yet to hear about the results.



    I use worm tea from my compost bin on my orchids. You can buy worm tea if you don't have a worm compost bin.

    Hello –

    My favorite organic fertilizer is the Neptune’s Harvest Fish & Seaweed. It is a gentle and complete blend that smells a little fishy when first applied indoors, but dissipates in an hour or two — you’ll love it! I’ve included a link that should help.


    Happy gardening!
