Day 42

I love growing Orchids. I have killed a fair few in my time, but the latest ones I’ve had for a couple of years or so now. Most of them lost all their flowers and have lain dormant for 18 months, but about 6 months ago 2 of them started to grow new stems. They are so slow!! They eventually got a few flower buds on them, though not many, and have done nothing else for weeks. But this evening one of the buds has started to open up, such excitement!

  1. Wow, I’m impressed, I have no talent for these buggers.
    We have a friend in the southern part of Fl. And all she has to do is repot it in a tree, and it takes. Can you imagine. Thus is a beauty Fraggy πŸ₯€

  2. Sigh…orchids.
    How amazing are they.

    I have also killed a few!

    Actually the last one I had, I gave it to a relative for adoption lol and she’s brought it back to life .
    Too worried to bring it back into my care in case I ruin all her hard work!
