My orchid is blooming!

Sunday, November 08, 2009

It's my cattelya orchid, which is the most showy orchid - just gorgeous magenta with big blossoms, three or four per stem - I have one stem in bloom, with another stem having four buds coming up!

I have a number of other orchids, including a basic dendrobium - but the cattelya is amazing!



People think orchids are difficult, but they really aren't - they need the right climate (tropical); lots of water but not sitting in water, they need to drain; a little food; light but not a lot of direct sun; and room to grow. Then they flourish.

Kind of like people, I guess.
