I am now the proud owner of ..... An Orchid !!!
I have never tried to grow one because I was under the
assumption that they were tropical, thus had to be hard
to grow. Besides I was saving their little lives by not putting
them under my semi-green thumb. Alright, I was chicken.
So many of you great gardeners grew them or were getting
them this winter because of a need gardeners have for colorful
growing plants and blooms even in the dead of winter. You were
saying that they were not as hard as one thought to grow. That
helped my thinking process about them. I just needed to work up
some nerve and get one. To at least try to grown one if only once.
I kept thinking and saying I want to get an orchid to grow and try
to see if I could keep it alive. They were so pretty and were
in so many colors and different types of blooms. I checked for
one a few times in our little town but no orchids.
So when we went to the Garden Show in Columbus I found
a pretty one and just had to bring the poor unsuspecting thing home.
They also had anthurium so of course I had to bring one of
those home with me also.
Isn't she pretty?
If she only had a name now because nothing was on the tag
but Dendrobium species, and I do not know where she came from.
But maybe I should not get to close too her or get too fond of
her because she may not stay around too long.
I will try to keep her growing, wish her luck.
