I am temporarily taking care of this orchid,
(which I initially thought would be a really bad thing
based on my historic incompetence with growing indoor plants)
but several weeks later- It's Blooming!!!
See- I didn't kill it !
Woo Hoo! Yipee!
This is an amazing thing,
the Patron Saint of Flowers must be watching over me
because I never could have done this alone!
Not only did it bloom but there are
More On The Way.
This orchid needs watering every day.
It isn't as if it is embeded in a deep pot of dirt;
rather, it's almost as if it's just a bundle of roots.
There is a plastic pot with holes punched in the bottom
inside of this ceramic pot. I keep a plastic water bottle
next to it and when I pass by, I give it a sip.
It worked, it worked, it worked!
(Imagine me doing the Blooming Orchid Dance,
if there is a blooming orchid dance).
When it comes time to return it, I hope it
is still as healthy! Then the pressure will be off.
