*** Growing Lady Slipper or "Paph" orchids 


If you've seen the Kroger store (or any other store) orchids that tell you to just add ice cubes, forget it!
That is little more than a sadistic way to kill a beautiful orchid while "donating" your money to the store and the promoter.
Phalaenopsis orchids live in a rain forest and ice on the roots will kill your orchid!! 
Just read this article and you'll learn how orchids grow in nature and it isn't anywhere near a freezer!
