There are some plants I’m scared to acquire. One of those plants is the lovely orchid.
Why the plant fear? Well, I’m capable of keeping some plants alive. I can handle a Christmas cactus or anything that is good at showing me it needs care before it’s too late to do any good. Basically, I can handle super hearty plants. Orchids might be hearty in some senses, but they’re notoriously difficult to get to bloom.
This morning, I found myself the proud owner of a very pretty orchid plant. This morning, I started a journey to become a better gardener. (Thanks to the nice library patron who thought I should acquire an orchid. That was nice.) Fingers crossed. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Where am I going to look for advice? I’ll start with my mom, who is a great gardener. And I’ll try out these instructions: orchid tips.
