Hi! These are just a few of my orchids, I have
so many of them. And I get ask a lot how I keep them blooming. I took care of them and raise them since they were really tiny plants. I bought them from Ebay and I just take care of them. And they constantly blooming. If you can see this one here, when this one got done, this came up. And then now, there’s another wand that it’s starting to have flowers too. I will tell you what I do. People ask me what’s the secret, it’s not
a secret. I collect my eggshells, I wash them good and then I bake them until they’re all crispy. And then I put them in the coffee bean grinder and I use it to sprinkle on the…if you can see here, there are some white powder? Those are from the eggshells. See the leaves, I got some on the leaves too. But I will show you how I do it or how I grind
it. Here I have the clean eggshells. I use the foil so it’s easy clean up. I also use when I boil my eggs, I let the
water cool off, the water that I used to boil eggs I don’t dump the water. I let it cool off and then I water my orchids
with the boiled egg water too. Now, it’s all crispy, see? Makes it faster! And I’m using this coffee bean grinder. It’s Hamilton Beach. As you noticed I was being careful of how
I say “beach” because most of the times it sounds like I’m saying bitch. These eggshells are full of calcium and orchids LOVE calcium. So, they gonna be happy orchids after we put some eggshell powder on the mix. Okay, we gonna grind them!!! Gonna make some noise! We have the small jar. Just dump it in there. Cut this first. I didn’t cut this before for the video. Whenever you have dead wand, just clip it. And then the eggshell powder, put a little
bit in there. And then when you water your orchids then it will just mix with the medium (orchid potting mix) that you’re using. Here you go!!! Happy orchids! Thank you for watching. And this is Jiex, at Jiex DIY!
