with all of my suppose-ed green thumbery, i have no ability to keep orchids blooming. like bromeliads, i have purchased several and even been gifted with a few to place inside my home. after only a few short weeks of enjoyment and all blooms have made their way to the surface below, my habit has been to place them outside somewhere as if i think they might re-bloom. it never happens. sure the greenery stays green-- but no blooms. lately i have faced reality, saved myself the trouble of watering and wondering and i just go ahead and toss them from house to trash. it might help if i would do a little research to find out what they require to flourish. but - alas- if it doesn't come easy- sad to say- i don't usually fiddle with it.
this one has conquered the odds. maybe someone can help me identify this survivor?
