Orchid Love


Kevin bought me an orchid for Valentine's Day.  He never believes me when I tell him not to get me anything (the only thing I asked for--jokingly--was tulips from Costco).  He didn't get me chocolates because he knows I'm playing the game.  I have a very sweet man.  I will do my best to keep this orchid alive.  I didn't have much luck with the last one.

So far, I have it in indirect sunlight (big north-facing window).  Feel free to give me any tips for orchid care!  I'll need all the help I can get!

  2. Beautiful flower! I heard to water orchids, put three ice cubes in the pot once a week. I've never had one, but that sure sounds easy.

  4. Hi Joanna

    I used to have the PERFECT spot for orchids - in a heated sunroom facing south - the warm of the sun during the day countered by cool nights (that's what orchids need most). Put the pot on a tray filled with pebbles and keep that wet so that there is a lot of humidity - our North American homes tend to be on the dry side.

    Happy Valentine's Day

    1. Thanks for the tips, Heather. Maybe they'll help me keep this thing alive longer than the last one ;-)

  5. Those are beautiful Joanna! Kevin did a good job picking those out! I think Orchids must be the most beautiful flowers in the world! Happy Valentine's Day!

  6. In Point Of Fact the discount rolex watches market for Fake Designer Handbags is really larger than the popular christmas gifts market for genuine branded bags. This is because the majority of cheap omega watches can simply not afford the mad costs at which genuine designer louis vuitton outlet online
    are accessible at. A genuine Louis vuitton bag can cost you up to $800. Yet if you search the hermes birkin kelly handbags inventory of knock off handbags you will have the capacity to get one for less than $100. Now why would you like to cost $700 extra on obtaining a chanel bag online that you can take for much lesser?
