Advantages: It really works!!!
I have never been very interested in gardening or planting flowers (very opposite to my mom). Maybe because there were plenty of flowers in our house all the time. But people start changing with age.... And last year I fell in love with orchids! Now I have 4! Just from the shop they looked gorgeous but in autumn after blossoming stalks dried, so I had to cut them. And had four orchids only with leaves.... Didn't know what to do.... Expected they to blossom in spring again but nothing changed. I wanted to throw them into rubbish. Then somehow decided to prove to myself that I can grow flowers! Bought a packet of Orchid Compost from B&Q, replanted my orchids and waited.... And nothing happened again. After about a month of waiting we were shopping at Sainsbury's and I noticed very bright, pink bottle of Baby Bio Orchid Food. Decided to give it a try!
Baby Bio's Orchid Food is ideal for all kinds of orchids. This fertiliser provides vibrant flowers and healthy leaves.
Type: Plant food
Manufacturer: Baby Bio
Pack size: 175ml
Price: £ 2.79-5
Packaging: small pink plastic bottle with images of orchid blossoms.
HOW TO USE
Add 5-10 drops to ½ litre (1 pint) of water, every time watering orchids. Should be used during the April to September growing season to get the most out of the exotic blossoms and extend the flowering time.
After reading instructions how to use this Baby Bio Orchid fertiliser I decided to use it my way. As I water orchids differently from other flowers - pour some water into a small bowl and put pot with orchid into it. Keep for a few hours. So I decided I don't need 1 pint of water with fertiliser. Instead of that into a small bowl with some water I put 1-2 drops of Baby Bio, then place a pot with orchid there. Repeat this with every my orchid.
Next day I started checking my orchids if something was happening. I know it sounds silly..... But I couldn't pass by them and not to look - maybe new stalks or leaves were growing. I continued doing this for over a week and already was disappointed.... But what a surprise after about two weeks!!! I noticed a new leave growing in one pot, and two new stalks in another!!!! I felt so happy! After a few more days new stalks grew in third pot, a bit later in the fourth! You can't even imagine how I felt (and still do). I was ready to throw those orchids out and now all of them have stalks and are ready to blossom. They also have new leaves and look great!
So I still use this Baby Bio Orchid Food every week and think it's a wonderful product! The results are obvious!!!! The price of this fertiliser is great too because every time You need just a few drops of it. So it's gonna last ages. I have checked my bottle that I'm using for a few months already but it's almost full and doesn't look like any of the liquid was used.
Well, one more good thing about this fertiliser - I feel I'm not hopeless in growing flowers. I'm already planning to buy a few more orchids! Just want to see mine in blossoms and decide what colours I need.
I definitely recommend Baby Bio Orchid Food if You have any orchids and give this fertiliser 5 out of five. It is easy to use, lasts ages, quick results, gorgeous blossoms!
