My love of flowers is no secret. I don't go to the grocery store without at least taking a peek at the flower section to see what's there. I'm forever taking snips from the garden to stick in a vase. One flower I really enjoy having in our home is the orchid. Orchid care is really easy. All it takes is a sunny window and the right amount of water. You can fertilize and re-pot them if you wish, but I've had our orchids for several years without doing anything special. The blooms get better and better each year.

If you're an orchid expert, you may have more insight into orchid care, but here's what works for me: 3 ice cubes per week.
Every month or so (when they are not blooming) I rinse them in the sink until water runs out the of bottom of the pot. Then I dry the leaves off with a paper towel. Another thing I like to do is to attach the blooming branches to a bamboo stick with raffia and moss. This is more for aesthetic reasons and because I love moss. There you have it, my secret to orchid success!
