Q.

Is It Okay To Fertilize My Mini Orchid With Miracle Grow?

Zone Conroe, TX zone 9 | Delyce2k added on January 13, 2020 | Answered

It's lost all it's flowers. Presently my little orchid plant is sitting under a lamp near a window. The lamp is on at least 10 hours a day because it is behind my desk. It seems to be flourishing as it's growing the beginnings of a leaf, etc. But I still feel that it needs help, like a fertilizer. Delyce

It needs a fertilizer, but it needs a specialized orchid fertilizer. Miraclegro will not contain the appropriate N-P-K ratios.

On top of needing an orchid fertilizer, you will want to start with half strength, twice per month. You could also do a quarter strength, weekly.
