Choosing The Right Orchid Fertilizer

If you’ve recently purchased or received an orchid, a question you might have is “What kind of fertilizer does it need?” Because choosing the right fertilizer can be overwhelming, here’s a simple checklist you can use to help pick the perfect fertilizer for your plant:
