Thanks for your comments, ladies! I will have to get some orchid mix unless anybody has a suggestion of how to make your own. I have potting soil & wood chips for reptile cages? This orchid is a small phal & it is in the pot it came in. I don't really care for it anyway because it is too tall & top heavy. It looked so healthy when I bought it. I hope I can keep it going. I am a lifelong gardener, it kind of runs in my family. I went to school for it, but couldn't make a living at it, so it's my hobby. I'm not used to having this many failures with plants, but I don't have any experience with orchids. This one looks & feels dry to me, but it is packed into this pot so tightly, it's hard to tell.

I work at Lowe's and recently picked up a Phal that was marked down because the flower had died back. I would like to have someone give me some pointers on care and getting it to rebloom.

I'm sure all geographies are required from the publishers. One is on the road for about thirty days. I could insist on FLA.

Sounds like fun but we are a few miles apart :) need to have a Booksinging in South Florida :)

You bet, and we'll all have to get together after booksignings and have lunch and show pics of our orchids! LOL

"Carol, it all depends on how much care you want to give it, how much room you want it to take up, and what the conditions are. Here are a few of my favorites. The forsythia my Mother would bring in branches in the spring. Helped with the cabin fever…"
