Just another day playing outside with the kids, finding wish flowers *weed spreaders*, making lizard catchers, picking lemons and making lemonade. Life was good until that humongous grasshopper tried to hitch a ride in my hair! HA!
To me, Phalaenopsis orchids are the easiest to grow and flower. They like indirect light and changes in weather to form flower spikes and if cared for properly, their blooms can last for weeks!
I rescued this little guy last year. He was almost dead with just one leaf! After a little TLC and some fertilizer he is doing great with two branching flower spikes and tons of buds getting ready to open.
This coming weekend is the Santa Barbara International Orchid show, so my little guy will be getting some new brothers and sisters soon! I’m so excited!! Yayyyyy orchids!
