Isn’t this orchid beautiful? It makes me think of spring and beautiful days ahead. My daughter brought this orchid to me almost a year ago saying that she didn’t have enough light in her home and was afraid it would die and would I take care of it for her. I have a wonderful room with lots of light but figured it would never bloom. Years ago I belonged (briefly) to the Grand Rapids Orchid Society. I learned about orchids and that you not only need light, but you need moisture and fans, and special foods, etc. During my short stint in the Society the only thing I managed to do was watch the blooming plants that Paul gave me, never bloom again.
Of course, back then I didn’t have a house with so much light. So, I said, sure I'd take the orchid. Fortunately directions were attached and after she left, I decided to read them. What a surprise when I read that all you need to do is add 3 ice cubes once a week! Place in plenty of light (not direct sunlight) and avoid drafts. Can anything be easier that that? And it worked! I love it and am enjoying its beauty. Hope you are having a beauty filled day too!
