Miniature orchid watering directions look odd
Just bought a miniature orchid which is new to me. Flowers are not quite open but it does look like a Cymbidium from what I can gather from a book. The directions say to water with 1 ice cube once a week, equivalent to 1.5 Tbsp of water. What the frig does that mean? Am I to place an ice cube on the potting surface to melt, or melt it and then water? Anyone out there know about this and why an ice cube is mentioned?
