Orchids


I think that Orchids are my favorite plant to grow. They are a great flowering indoor plant. The flowers can last for months...that is the great thing about Orchids. I have managed to keep 4 out of 5 plants alive for some time. One plant has bloomed 3 years in a row. The plants are relatively small at this time, and I rotate them to my office when they are in bloom. When none are in bloom, I shop for another plant that has just begun to bloom...and has bountiful buds to last a long time. I prefer the large blooms over the tiny ones. I like pink and ivory color blossoms.

I have some other plants; Christmas Cactus (2), a large Meyer Lemon Tree, and a huge Jade plant (30 yrs old).
