Have You Signed Up for Your Free Orchid Watering Reminder?

June 8, 2011

If you received a beautiful Just Add Ice Orchid as a gift, don’t forget to sign up for FREE orchid watering reminders on the Just Add Ice Orchids website. You can sign up for weekly email reminders or download our attractive desktop calendar wallpaper (also printable) that notes your weekly watering date. We make caring for your new Phalaenopsis orchid as easy as possible. To water your Just Add Ice Orchid, you simply add 3 ice cubes, equivalent to ¼ cup of water when melted to its pot once a week. Because we want our orchid owners to be successful, we offer a free reminder system so you won’t forget when to add ice to your orchid. You choose the day of the week that’s convenient for you to water your orchid and we’ll send you a weekly reminder.

Just Add Ice Phalaenopsis Orchids are an excellent choice to give first-time orchid owners. One of the hardiest orchid species, Phalaenopsis orchids are known for being easy to care for. However, even the most accommodating plant still requires attention to its basic needs if it is to thrive. Watering has proven to be the area that most confuses new orchid owners. Over-watering is the primary cause of orchid failure. We developed our simple watering system --  just add ice – to take the guesswork out of watering our Just Add Ice Orchids.

In addition to receiving the correct amount of water every week, your new Just Add Ice Orchid should receive plenty of bright but indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight is too harsh for these exotic plants and can burn the plant’s leaves. Keep your orchid away from drafts and in an area with a temperature between 60 and 85 degrees F.
