Though my orchid still isn't fully standing tall, hubby was able to get me a decent picture of it.

Very pretty orchid Pat. Yes, I agree they do teach us patience. Robin, I can't wait until I see your orchid too!

Oh that is even better. I love it when a plant has a fond memory to go with it.

Happy Anniversary!

I'm so excited because this orchid was a gift from the wedding reception of my husbands nephew who got married one month after we did.  So it is going to be in bloom for my 1 year anniversary and for theirs.  So nice!

Pretty Pat, isn't it exciting when they bloom.

Comment by Pat on March 10, 2012 at 9:28pm

My first orchid is blooming.  The only thing I have done is keep it next to a NW window and water with 3 ice cubes every Sat.

Here is one of my orchid that is teaching me patience, I want it to bloom NOW but it's been taking it's own sweet time.

Robin,   really like your tea pot idea.  I might not even worry about holes unless you were going to plant them directly in the teapots.  If you can leave them in the current pots and just insert that into the teapots, you can just pull them out for a few days of air every now and then.

"I grow them in two spots under my eaves here in the Pacific NW. They moved themselves by reseeding out from under the roof! The happier of the two likes dry, hot but afternoon shade. I cut them back after flowering & they grew new leaves again…"
