I adore orchids. I mean, I really, really ADORE orchids! They are so beautiful and super easy to grow! I am fascinated with their blooms - each flower is so unique and the color selection is huge. I also love that the blooms last a very long time. True, there is a while after it stops blooming where it is just these long green thick waxy leaves but if you take care of them well, soon you will have new blooms and lots of them. There is this thrill that works its way inside of me when I see the beginning of a bloom scape starting to grow and then the buds appear and finally the flowers burst forth. Worth every minute!
It has become my tradition, if you want to call it that, to bring an orchid plant to a friend upon the passing of a loved one or while they are in the hospital, rather than a bouquet. Lasts longer and the beauty surpasses any cut flower. Have you ever tried growing orchids? Do you have a favorite flowering houseplant? Do tell!
